I get that you want a name that both you and your husband like... but it is so frustrating when guys do this. It's really sweet of you to completely revamp your list without much input for him. But,...

Sophie-Claire Juliette, Sarah Katherine Lea, Serena Isabel and Caroline Augusta Jane.
Grace Margaret Eve
I sort of love that Grace is a classic solid name but also a virtue name. It somehow...
I usually like going with the simplest spelling (unless there is a reason not to....) so.... Isabel.
But since you are also honoring an Isabella - Isabelle does make good sense.
Endora: not listed | Lorelei: #501.
Dexter: #380 | Gideon: #370
Elva/Elvira: not listed/not listed | Hestia: not listed | Merida: not listed | Penrose: not...
I really love Noor and will be considering it as a mn in the future. It has such a beautiful meaning and sound.
I think Juliet and Ophelia are fine as sibling names. But yes they do scream Shakespear. Though Ophelia does that for most people anyway. (Personally I prefer the spanish Ofelia because it's less...

I'm a huge fan of literary names but I feel like some times one has to be careful not to fall into the "I'm smart and eclectic" name-nerd pit. I do it a lot! I think it's because we see...
Thanks for the links to behindthename.com. I had looked at the all in the past - it is my go-to site - but it's always great to take a second look. Really appreciate it.
That's a tough one.... I want to say I'd still use it but I can't really say that for certain. Honestly, every time a friend has a baby I let out a huge sigh of relief.... so far only one person has...
Haha. I'd thought of that Hubby isn't too keen on it though. He thinks the animal name genre is odd.
Mordecai, always had a bit of a dark mythology, wizardy/magic feel to me.
Names that sound/feel like Mordecai to me are:
You could also due Vincenzo or Vincent nn Enzo. Or Lorenz/o nn Enzo as well. All of those would also sound good with Reed. And would allow you to keep Enzo while not strictly choosing an E name.
I think the combo works just like that and would mesh well with your Ophelia combo. They feel like the could be sisters.
@raevynstar: I appologize that it's taken me so long to get back on this. (We had a family emergency that just took over my world).
Anywho- Umbielle is such a cool name. Thanks for the suggestion. ...
I know others have mentioned this but if I were you I'd probably avoid word names with a last name like Glass.
Summer Glass, Lavender Glass etc sound more like descriptions of the glass than a...
The ones I think we will consider more closely are: Paloma, Marisol & Ines. (My DH grew up in Argentina and Spain and these also work as honor names for our family).
...but I also love Ofelia &...
@Daphodil: There is so no way to do this "right" or "wrong".
You right Irving would be a cool way to honor both my parents. Will definitely keep that in mind for the future.
I do particularly...
Aida is a great alternative. It is short like Isis and definitely easy to pronounce. I think it's a great internationally viable name.
Just FYI (I don't know how familiar you are): If my memory...
My husband mostly dislikes most of my name choices.... or he likes them enough, just not for our kids.
We don't really talk about it - he asked not to get sucked into my name obsession until we...
I think you can go two ways with a sib-set that includes Joy.
Choose other virtue names or other slightly-light hearted names with a classic yet modern flair.
The virtue names might be a little...
I associate names with emotional-images. I guess sounds would be part of that.
So if I were to envision an empty, foggy forest then I also imagine the smell of wet trees and the echoey sound of...
I've been thinking about my name list lately and have realized that I'd really love to give our future kids two mn's. The first being and honor name the second being a family . (So hyphens would be...
I love Marilyn and will be trying to convince my husband that we should use it as a mn when we have kids in the future.
It is a little dated but it depicts the glamour, and charm of the 1950s. I...
Sorry for the repeats - Juno, Juniper, Jubilee, Jolie, Joy, Joyce and Justine.
Have you considered Bastet? (Obiviously wouldn't work with Bastian but Moses and Bastet would be nice together.)
How about Hathor (which I love), or even Heket.
Also I might avoid Nile as a mn...
