I really like both names. Do he seem like one more than the other?
Impressions: August is a studious and whimsical boy. Holden is a more serious and athletic boy. That is totally IMHO.
Araminta? But if you're going to just use Ara, I'd do it. If Eva and Ada and Ida and Ira and Ana can standalone, so can Ara.
If you're needing a longer form though, you can also entertain names...
Yes, so sorry for your losses. Both in one year. That is so tough.
But I have to agree with the majority. I like the idea of using Thomas but call him TJ (it DOES seem too good to be true that it...

I love Merit, Hope and Mercy for virtue names. Jeanette Mercy sounds great as a middle set.
I know one little girl named Arrow and her sister is Oria. Interesting that you're looking at Os too. I...
Ah! Thanks for the context and extra hints. Hmm... a few K suggestions for you that I think could work with your daughters' names:
Kaius (could be Kai or Kash)
Kaveh (ca-vay, I knew a guy...
I agree ^^ I love Veda and I think it pairs wonderfully with Bodhi.
Helena - goes better with the sibset (see below) BUT how do you pronounce it? That's my only hesitation with this beautiful name. I pronounce it He - LAY - nuh but I know there are a few other...

I'm so glad to see someone using Beau. I love it so much. I chose Nate / Nathaniel. I feel like Colton is a bit trendy, though I love Cole. Isadore is so awesome but I fear he'd get jokes about...
Tate! Love it.
Would you consider Penelope nn Poppy?
IMO, the only usable one is Varik. It has the familiarity as being close to sound as Derek or Marek.
Rune and Sten might be good nicknames? Ludovic is a mouthful. Aesop just not the best sound....
If your daughter goes by Coco, I'd strike off Cole. Which is too bad, because I like it the best of your options! Gabriella and Alexandra are lovely classic names that will serve them well through...

I love all of your options. I don't think you can go wrong. I want to put in some love for Dallas though. I know a 6yr with that name and he is the sweetest, smartest little guy I know and I have...

I think it's a beautiful choice that just happens to honour you. Which is more than okay.
And thank you to the PPs who clued me into the Will / Willow and Jada / Jaden thing - duh! I love it.

I like Ward. I think it fits nicely with the modern-sounding Asher. And I LOVE using family surnames as firsts. I agree that Brandon is dated. Bran would be slightly better. But that just reminds me...
Maeve & Callum
Maeve & Findlay
Maeve & Bennett
Maeve & Quinn
Maeve & Harris

It's great that you're adding names to consider. Always better to start with a larger pool. Also nice to know that you're in Scotland, so the US popularity doesn't apply. However, I think you need to...

I really love Pierce. My boss years ago had kids named Pierce and Evelyn (Evie) and I thought that was such a great set. Unfortunately Evelyn is getting very popular, as you said.
I love the idea of continuing the vowels. I voted Emily as it's also a beautiful classic.
But seeing now that you like Nora, I'd actually suggest Eleanora and you can nn her Nora? That way you...

I like the E-F-G thing and I doubt many people will catch on. Graham is one of my favourites. Are you pronouncing it Gray-am? That doesn't sound like Gram to me. The nickname Gray is adorable too.
It's just a slight tweak, but how about Zoe Alexandria? That doesn't bring up topless ladies. And I do slightly prefer the -RIA ending, it feels a bit more elegant.

I actually love Dorothy nn Dot. It's poised to make a comeback, but you'd be ahead of the trend. Hattie on the other hand, is trendy. Try watching the Wizard of Oz and maybe she'll charm you? Or how...
Both are lovely lovely names. I would tend towards Amelie just because it's less common than Violet (and I LOVE the movie Amelie.) However, Amelia is super popular so you'll risk her getting mistaken...

I say go for Penelope. I know you're concerned about popularity, but it's within the realm of popularity of your other children's name rankings. Plus, it complements the set and most importantly you...

I agree that if this is a little girl, it's time for a literary name. It's unfortunate that he won't entertain your first love of Bronte. Here are some others you might like, although I'd be more...
