CruzVeda

We are expecting our third child. We have a boy and a girl already: Cruz Andres and Veda Josephine. I like that both of their names are four letters (though we’re not committed to four letters) and have spiritual ties, but I can’t seem to find a name that I truly love for a third child.

Our top names so far are Makaio and Eden. We have some family names we might use for the middles. I would love if you could offer me any suggestions at all. I don’t have any set rules for the names, but I want to love it, and I also want it to flow with Cruz and Veda.

Our last name is a long, common one – starts with an R, ends with a ‘z’ sound.

girls' baby names

Alison writes:

We need the perfect name for our fourth daughter! Our daughters are Ellyanna Jane, Vivienne Renee, and Hannalise Olive.

We’re looking for a long name – three or more syllables, with a similar style to her sisters’ names. But it needs to have a different sound and dominant letters, so we can’t repeat anna/enne/lise/viv/elly.

Our last name starts with a B, so no B names, please! Other family names to avoid: Jennifer, Cheryl, Kristy, Kirsten, Isabel, Amelia, Anna, Skye, Liberty, Pollyanna, Tiffany, and Felicity.

Our current shortlist consists of Olivia, Lydia, Everly, Lavinia, and Rosalie.

Kathleen and her husband are expecting their first child, a boy. She writes:

Here’s our dilemma: my husband is in love with the name Peter.

While I don’t love it, it has started to grow on me.  My main concern is the dirty joke associated with it.  Do you think that’s still an issue these days?  Also, can you suggest any some middle names to go with Peter?
