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.

April babyberries

By Linda Rosenkrantz

April brought showers of beautifully named berrybabies, including two Olivers, an Oscar and an Otis—O definitely becoming the new ‘it’ vowel for boys. And Angus makes two appearances—as an April arrival and as a big brother.

For girls, we see some unusual middles—Tirzah, Haya and Behati.

There was one single set of twins—the adorably nickname-named Lottie and Minnie.

namesageWelcome to Nameberry’s newest column, The Name Sage. Every week, I’ll answer one reader’s questions about naming a baby-on-the-way, or general baby name angst. And here’s the best part: we’d love it if you would add your thoughtful suggestions and comments to help expectant parents decide. The world needs more nicely named children, berries! Want to see your question featured? Please email namesage@nameberry.com.

Lindsay and her husband are expecting their second child, a little sister for Charlie Layne. They love Charlie’s name, and they’re trying to find something they like just as much for their daughter-on-the-way.

She writes:

We are currently struggling with whether to continue the borrowed-from-the-boys trend, which I know can nearly incite a riot! If we go for a girly name will one child feel left out?

Their current list includes Elliot, Even, Reese, and Finley, but also Lila, Lola, Stella, and Willa.

Lindsay adds: At this point it feels more like trying to “match” to our first daughter’s name rather than picking something we truly love.

Read on for my answer, and please add your thoughtful comments, too!

What Nameberry names pop for you?

wow baby names

There’s a thread on our forums, started by steampunkleo, under the heading ‘Names on Nameberry that make you go WOW!’ which we thought deserved to be served out to a wider audience.

So, is there a single name that maybe you had never heard before, which just jumped off the site for you and even made it onto your own personal list or signature?

Or a stunning twin or other sibset that absolutely knocked you out?

Or a magical first and middle combo that you hadn’t ever thought of putting together but which works perfectly for you?
