    Help with Sib Name Set!!

    Hello!

    Oh So I have a name conundrum.

    We have a boy and a girl with vintage 'stone' names. I call my kids the nuggets.

    They are Jasper Brian secondmiddlename hyphenatedlast (oldest) and Ruby Beatrice secondmiddle hyphenatedlast(younger). Great right?

    I need a third name for a girl!

    We are kicking around Pearl but it doesn't grab me. I like Silver for her, but not sure how it coveys to others. Her second middle name is Chinese and means binder of the gems.

    Help!

    TIA!!!

    Your children have great names. Pearl would work well, but if you don't like it, I wouldn't use it just to carry out the theme. Silver seems more modern than Jasper and Ruby. From the gem suggestions, I think Opal, Coral, Garnet, or Gemma work with the vintage feel of Jasper and Ruby.

    You could also use a name meaning gold or silver. Some possibilities:

    Ariana
    Aurelia
    Cressida/Cressa
    Gilda
    Xanthe
    Zarina/Zorina
    Zora
