Juno - female
Kieran - male, but I've come across female Kirans, so in that spelling I'd be unsure.
Rory - male
Carson - male
Rowan - could equally picture this on either
Elliott - male ...
I'd also add that places that are meaningful to you can be a good source of a penname. If you love London, how about using James Hyde, after two of the parks there? Or if you went on honeymoon in...
How common or unusual do you want the names to be? Also, what ethnicity are the characters? That will depend on surname.
I've always wanted to use Phoebe and Imogen together as a twinset, but like others have said, there are plenty of options that would work.
Phoebe and Chloe
Phoebe and Matilda
Phoebe and Vivian...
Lee and Leigh are pronounced the same to me, so I'm a bit baffled by this alternative pronunciation - is it meant to be kind of like lay-vee?
I prefer Levi (lee-vye) Hugo to Conner Hugo. Connor's...
1. I'd say early July, as late July and August are school holidays over here, so there'll be tons of families with kids about. Early July would still be busy, but probably marginally less so.
Say: Hi Violet, lovely to meet you.
Think: Big Ben Affleck fan? His daughters are Violet and Seraphina.
Have you met my sons, Joseph Matthew and Oliver George? We call them Joey and Ollie...
Poll: Favourite Joe name?
I've always loved Joseph, and the nickname Joe, but I came across an adorable little Josiah recently and it got me thinking about whether there are any other ways to get to Joe that I've not...
There's not a lot you can really do with Sophie, except the obvious Sophia, which I don't like and wouldn't use - nothing against the name, I'm just fed up of people calling me it by mistake enough...
Exactly this. Bexley is a place to me, not a name. I can sort of see the appeal in that it's got trendy sounds, but if I came across a kid named Bexley I'd wonder why, of all the place names in the...

I wouldn't dismiss your favourite names based on what your parents think - they had their chance to name kids, now it's yours. Everyone's got different tastes, you and your parents included, and...
A lot of the obvious ones have been said, but there's also
Reuben > Ruby
Francis/Franklin > Frankie/Fran
Angus > Ann
Grayson > Grace
Victor > Vicky
Evan > Evie/Evvie
I quite like Madeleine (Maddy) or Rebecca (Becky) for the oldest, and I agree with going for something cutesy for the youngest. Not too bothered about maintaining the nature theme, as it seems a bit...
I quite like Maisie or Ruby for the youngest, but I'm not sold on either of the suggestions for the older two. I don't think old-fashioned names were quite as 'in' 16 years ago, especially not for...
It depends what type of vibe you're going for. Marcus is the more common name and I see it as being quite a conservative choice by conservative parents, whereas Marius is a bit more unusual and...
Genre of Story: Contemporary YA
Time Period/Location: Present day London
I've got three sisters, well, two sisters and their older half-sister, and I've been told their names don't give off...
George Alexander was on my list until the royals nabbed it, and I'm still searching for a replacement I like as much.
To match Beatrice, Cordelia and Sylvia I'd go with a middle that's vintage in...
It's more to do with syllables for me rather than visual length. Lucy and Charlotte, for example, are both two syllables and despite one being four letters long and one nine, it doesn't seem awkward....
I've got Nicholas on my list too, great name. I think a shorter middle would work better with your fn-ln combo, so how about:
Yeah, I haven't seen any of her/his other posts either but there's nothing in this one that is any different from other 'complete this sibset' posts.
Max, Sam and...
As a middle name, I think you could get away with it. I do prefer other Ell- names though, Ellery feels a bit awkward to me. It's not the celery thing, more that it sounds like you're saying Ella-ry,...
It all depends how you pronounce Clara, I find Clah-ruh passable but Claire-uh really nasally and whiny. Caroline I've got mixed associations with but on the whole I slightly prefer it, Callie is my...
Glad to see it's going down well on the whole, and that I should stick with a fairly classic sibset - I'll work on the middle but you ladies have given me food for thought. I've never come across a...
Is America as it is at the moment? You could use another state name - if you like Aya but want something longer, how about Arizona nn Ari? Or if they're archaeologist parents who like Egypt, how...

I totally agree with this. In fact, any name with a double 'r' sound I struggle with. I work with a guy called Rory and I actually have to consciously think about it every time I say his name.
