    Thoughts on potential baby name

    Currently pregnant with 3rd child. Siblings are a girl - Freya Marie and brother Graham Robert.
    We haven't found out baby's gender yet but here are some name ideas:

    Girl : Selena Beth (Beth is my middle name & Selena is an old English family name)

    Boy: Soren Erik ( Soren - from Sorenson - an old family last name)

    How do these sound with the siblings? Thanks!!

    Soren sounds very, very good with Freya, but the Scandinavian style leaves Graham out. I like the combination, but it's a double-dose of Nordic style.

    Selena Beth leaves me a little colder. I do like Selena, in that it's neither British like Graham nor Scandi like Freya, but Beth waters it down. I know it's your middle name, but it might sound better as Selena Elise or Selena Elizabeth.

    Dissecting the relative ethnicity doesn't seem to do much in this case. I think both names work very well in terms of sound and feel.

    I like them both. I do agree with Blade that I might go with Elizabeth rather than Beth, but that may be beside the point, since Beth is your middle name.

    Using Soren may cause people to assume you are a Kierkegaard fan.

    I like Selena Beth a lot. I generally don't care for Beth but it goes well with Selena.
