Angela "Angie" and her husband Christopher are expecting their sixth. They do not know what the gender is, and must be prepared for all outcomes. Angie and Christopher's elder children are: Huxley Percival "Huck", James Alexander "Jem", Rosemary Giuliana "Rose", Vincenzo Michael "Enzo", and Susannah Josephine. Angie is a big fan of literary names, while Christopher prefers passing down family names (James, Alexander, Mary, Vincenzo/Vincent, Susan, and Joseph are all family names). Angie and Christopher would prefer not to repeat initials (no A, C, H, J, R, V, E, S) or have similar ending sounds. Other family names are: Julian, Carmella, Peter, Christina, Anne/Anna, Isadore, Isabella, and Alfredo. Suggestions from Susannah are: Bluebelle, Butterfly, Baby Bo and Mouse. Ideas?
Lemuel Petros (from Peter)(nn Muel) or Bonita Isadore (nn Bonnie, Bo, or Baby Bo - you're welcome Susannah! haha)
Felicity and Drew are expecting their next daughter. They already have kids Hugo Edmund, Cassia Summer (Sia), Dante Lemuel, and Emilia Daisy (Em). The first initial should not be H, C, D or E. Emilia has started calling the baby "Lo" and "Lolo", and Cassia loves the names Jane, Rose, Layla and Stella, all of which Dante insists are boring names. Dante likes the name Aria Violet. Hugo likes all names that start with H, end with o, or are 4 letters, which Emilia says is silly. Felicity and Drew don't care as long as the name sounds nice with the siblings names and that somehow all 4 kids are happy with the name.
Enzo and Jessica are excited to welcome their first child together. Jessica already has Elsie, Lola & Camellia from a previous relationship, whilst Enzo has Zara Maria and Gabriel Aurelio. As such, neither the first or middle name can begin with E, L, C, Z, A, G or J. The most important criteria for them is a name that could work well in English, Québécois and Italian, as Enzo is half-Italian and Jessica is Canadian French. Middle names should honour Jessica's parents: Margaux & Phil as Enzo's have already been honoured in his existing children's names.
Jane and Robbie are welcoming their second child into the world. They already have a daughter named Aliya Summer, but don't know the gender of this child so need to be prepared for a boy or a girl. The baby is due in the fall and they would like the middle name to reflect that. The first name should be an uncommon Hebrew name to honour Robbie's heritage. The name should not start with A and the middle name should not start with S.
Gilead Aki or Ronia Jora
Susan and William are expecting their second son in the spring. Their first son's name is Oscar Daniel and they are looking for another name that is easy to pronounce and spell in both English and Spanish (and bonus points if it works well in other languages too), but that also has a slightly countrified/old-fashioned feel to the name. They would prefer not to reuse any initials and are really looking for a name that is all-boy without being too macho.
