Eva and Adrian Woodley are about to welcome their second child, a boy who will be a brother for their daughter Akita Esme Cosmos, 3. They would like their son's name to end in -a as well, but not be something common (ie Joshua). It should not be more than 3 syllables, and they don't mind if he shares an initial with another family member. His first middle name will pay respects to Adrian's late father Paul, but as they would prefer something more unusual they would like to chose a name with the same meaning rather than actually use the name Paul. His second middle name should be in the same vein as Cosmos (relating to space/planets or similar).
Hosea Pasha Orion
Mark and Olivia are about to welcome their first child, a boy. They would like his first name to mean 'strong' or 'brave', and have one middle name with two syllables which should begin with A and have Celtic roots. Both names should avoid ending with -ar or -er.
Wes and Delia are expecting a little girl, to join twin siblings Atlas and Cosima. They would like a name that sounds ancient and strong, no more than 3 syllables. It should include the letter 'a' but not start with the same letter as their other children. It should have 2 middle names, and include reference to their Welsh heritage and honour Delia's grandmother Dorothy Anne in some way.
Surname is Brennan-Kirke.
Vesta Elwyn Dorothea Brennan-Kirke
Fiona and Gregory Egan are expecting their third child, a daughter, to join her brother Frederick Godwin-Edward, and sister Florence Georgiana-Eleanor. She must have the same initials as her siblings, FG-B. Her first name must be four syllables long, her middle name cannot be Gabriella, Gabrielle, Grace, Georgia, Gianna or Giselle, and her second middle name must be of French origin.
Joanna and Mark are having their second daughter. Their older daughters name is Harmony-Rae Patience. Like her sister, the newborns fist name must be a two part name with the first part having something to do with music, the second part can only be three letters. The middle name must be a virtue name.
Lucie and Aram Dury are expecting their fourth child, a little boy. They have established a firm pattern in the way they name their children, and intend to continue in the same manner when it comes to naming their new son. His first name should be the surname of a classical composer (allowing scope for a nickname if it is long), first middle name should be a Shakespearean character, and second middle name should be a one syllable bird name. He will join older siblings Vivaldi Cressida Wren "Viva", 7, Corelli Beatrice Lark "Coco", 5, and Brahms Claudio Teal, 2.

Timothy and Eliza, who are both English professors, are expecting twin girls, and they have some specific rules concerning the spelling of their daughters' names:
-each girl should have two middle names
-the total number of letters in each girl's name (first + two middles) should be equal to the total number of letters in her sister's name
-for each girl, the starting and ending letters of all three names must be different (ex: Emily Allison Blair is ok - the letters are E, Y, A, N, B, and R. Clara Therese Juliet is not ok, because T is repeated at the beginning of Therese and the end of Juliet)
-the girls may not have the same first initial, but should share at least one initial
-no word names
-no extremely popular names, but for each name, the most widely accepted spelling should be used
-they would like to honor their favorite contemporary writers, Zadie Smith and Jonathan Safran Foer, in the girls' middle names
Hermione Zelda Juliett and Beatrice Joanna Cecily (20 letters each and shared J initials; that was a tough one:))
Adam and Beatrice Cohen are expecting their first child, a little girl. They want her to have an unusual,stylish first name and two middle names. Adam is a musician so he wants at least one of the names to be connected with music and Beatrice wants one of the middle names to be a word name. The couple don't want a trendy or a surname name.
