    I love Hawthorne but couldn't think of a way to shorten it. I'm not sure I love Hawk though. I also don't like Northrup at all, North is OK. What about Hawthorne and Thelonius nn Tully?

    I find Northrup a bit odd, especially the suffix 'rup', there's something weird about it. I'm sorry. I think I'd use Northcliff or just North. Hawthorne is cute but that's because I can't resist any boy names which contain th.

    niusity, I too am a sucker for names with 'th' in them! Kinda obvious with these two names haha.

    I see all of your resistance to Northrop - and the 'rop' ending is what would make it hard for me to use this name in real life too.

    I love the suggestion of Thorne as an alternate nn to Hawthorne. Actually, Thorn & North would make pretty cool brothers if the parents were into that matchy matchy thing (all same letters just arranged diff).

    Thanks for your reactions!

    This is so funny, I've been trying to find the perfect middle for Caspian, and right now Caspian North and Caspian Hawthorne are in my top five! So I would definitely use Hawthorne, although I prefer North over Northrop.

    Alice Willow ~ Ophelia Wren ~ Lucia Pearl ~ Eve Wisteria nn Evie ~ Cosima Rose ~ River _____

    Fantastic sibset! I love it! Personally, I'd change Northrop to Thackeray (it's close to my heart). Hawthorne & Thackeray. Thorne & Thack. A very literary sibset.

    But Hawthorne & Northrop is terrific, and probably my favorite sibset I've seen on Nameberry.
