7 Month Itch
Hello again, Berries!
How is everyone?
Olive is almost seven months old (how is that possible? can I freeze time, please?) and while we won't be trying for at least another year, I have the naming itch again! So this is all purely hypothetical, but I'd love it if you would humor me! You can never start thinking about names too soon, right? :)
We plan on using either Hugo or Frederick if we ever get that elusive boy. But since we clearly have a knack for making girls, I think we should have a few girl's names ready, too.
So tell me, what would you name a sister to Willa, Cora, Sybil, and Olive?
I can't wait to see your suggestions!
I think I would pick something short. All of the other girl names are about 5 letters or less and one or 2 syllables. Something like Julianna for example, would feel really out of place. I could see...
Definitely something short and sweet like the rest of your girls names. If you throw a long name in there, say... Anastasia, it would be off-balance. So, I'd go with something like Tess, Georgia, Laura, Adele, Rose/Rosalie, Eleanor, Daphne, Phoebe, Sylvie(too close to Sybil?), Daisy
Hope these help!
Something short and vintage like your other girls' names, love the pp sugustion of Alice for you.
I absolutely adore your daughters' names.
It looks like all your daughters have relatively short, 2-syllable names, so the only ones I've thought of are also 2 syllables to maintain some sort of connection. (Of course, whether or not there is a connection is your call.)
Off the top of my head, I thought of a few vintage-sounding but hip names, which seem to suit the others.
Hope this helps get you started! :-)
Your girls' names are lovely.
Also, not to get too up close and personal, but they do say... If you use ovulation predictor kits and wait to have sex until twelve hours after the LH surge is detected, there's a better chance of having a boy. (Male sperm is faster but not as hardy as female sperm, and with this kind of timing the male sperm has a better chance.) They say an alkaline environment can help too (brought on by multiple female orgasms!) as can higher sperm count (abstain from sex until conception time.) Who knows if this really works, but it's an interesting theory.
I love the suggestion of Hazel! I think something short and sweet and vintagey goes really well with Willa, Cora, Sybil, and Olive. (BTW, I love the idea of Hugo or Frederick with your girls!) A couple other ideas:
Edith (meh, too much Downton Abbey? I still really love Willa, Cora, Sybil, Olive, and Edith together...)
Winifred (maybe a bit on the longer side, but I like it with your girls)
Alice (echoing this one, too! Willa, Cora, Sybil, Olive, and Alice is lovely)
Nell (or a name that yields Nell, like Eleanor or Penelope
Just thought of another one--Audrey! I think Willa, Cora, Sybil, Olive, and Audrey would be fab together.
