    Ralph Emerson Hugo

    What do you think of the name? Are there any ways you'd change it?

    What do you think his brother's names might be?

    Thanks!

    my first thought was Ralph Waldo Emerson haha

    It is a nice name though, so if you love it use it

    I agree, I went to Ralph Waldo Emerson straightaway, lol, and then Victor Hugo. It's very literary! Is Ralph set? It just seems very different stylistically from Emerson and Hugo. I really love the Emerson Hugo part, though! I think Emerson Hugo Ralph would even work better, but if Ralph is what you love, I wouldn't want to get rid of it. I would definitely separate Ralph and Emerson somehow, though, unless you're a HUGE fan of his work and are intentionally trying to honor him so obviously. Maybe something like Rafe Emerson Hugo, even? I've heard Ralph said like Rafe, or even use Ralph but pronounce it like Rafe? I'm not sure, the literary connection is really strong!

    Good luck!

    ETA: Now that I've mulled over it a bit, I have to add that I really love the idea of Rafael Emerson Hugo! I think that would be fabulous, and you could use Rafe as a nn?

    I feel silly for not thinking Ralph Waldo Emerson! Thanks for pointing it out.

    Also, nothing is set as I'm not expecting. It just happens to be the only boy's name I have.

    I also thought Ralph Waldo Emerson. As a matter of fact, at first my mind switched the order of the names to Ralph Hugo Emerson.
