    Help with sibling name for Lucian?

    We are due in 2 weeks (!!), and are having a difficult time deciding on either boy or girl names. I started with a long list of possibilities, but hubby has vetoed most of them. *sigh* Sibling is nearly 6 yr old Lucian Alexander. Last name is pronounced Gore-ell.

    Hubby-approved short lists (names interchangeable as first or middle) -

    Boys: Bram, Magnus, Ulric or Aldric, Vladimir, Balthazar, Dragomir, and Vladric. Iffy on Roarke and Ronan. I also like Graeme and Gideon, but not with our last name. Perhaps as middle names? Our first inclination was Vladimir Ulric, since that was our back-up for our first kiddo, but we aren't so sure now. Hubby loves Balthazar Dragomir, but I don't know if I can do that to a little baby, lol. Although I do like Baz as a NN.

    Girls: Inara, Nuada or Nuala, Artemis, Thisbe, Aurora, Gwendolyn. Iffy on Athena/Althea, Aurielle, and Zelda. We, including our son, all really like Inara Gwendolyn, and I kinda love the initials IGG making for a cute NN a la Iggy, or even a NN of Gwen. We aren't completely sold on it though.

    I don't think we have a style, I guess I'm just hoping we'll hit on a name that we both just "know" is right like we did with Lucian. We kept a back-up just in case we met him and our first choice didn't fit.

    Opinions and any other options are greatly appreciated!

    For a boy, I think Balthazar nn Baz is fantastic (could go for Basil or Sebastian to get Baz, too, if you're worried that Balthazar might be too over the top). Basil Dragomir "Baz" would be a pretty rad combo. I'd go for something more restrained in the middle name slot if I were putting Balthazar up front: Balthazar Graeme, maybe? I also really like Magnus (and think it'd be awesome with Lucian), Aldric, and Bram.

    If everybody likes Inara Gwendolyn, I think you should stick with it (and keep yourselves a backup like you did the first time around if it suddenly doesn't seem right when she's born). Thisbe is my favorite from your short list, and of your "iffy" names, I love Athena and Zelda. In the vein of Athena/Althea, I also feel compelled to mention Anthea.

    Suggestions:

    Cassander
    Tycho
    Hector
    Theron
    Oswin or Osric
    Emrys or Emeric
    Ignatius or Ignatz
    Godfrey or Godric

    Constantine
    Rasmus / Erasmus (or Erastus)
    Alaric

    Otto
    Rex
    Galen
    Bruno
    Calix
    Ishmael

    Alban / Albin
    Evander

    Carys / Cerys / Charis
    Ceridwen
    Lumi
    Eira
    Seren
    Tesni
    Aella
    Nimue
    on my mind, for the moment

    Daria | Athena | Ramona | Winifred | Maeve | Blythe | Nadine | Dorothea | Margot | Cyra | Renata | Hypatia | Junia | Thisbe

    Flynn | Otto | Winston | Claude | Leif | Roald | Tavish | Lionel | Cormac | Tobin | Oswin | Rory | Damon | Tycho

    Mildred "Red" ☆ Obedience "Bede" ☆ Relief "Leafy" ☆ Dorothea "Doro" ☆ Penelope "Pen" ☆ Ruth "Rue" ☆ Eudoxia "Exie"

    Of your boys names I love Bram, Vladimir, Balthazar, Roarke, Ronan, Graeme, and Gideon. I think Balthazar Gideon or Balthazar Roarke would be a really awesome choice. Vladimir Ronan, and Vladimir Bram are also favorites for me. I love the idea of Bram Sebastian.

    As for girls I love Thisbe, Aurora, Gwendolyn, Athena, and Aurielle. I think Thisbe Athena, Gwedolyn Aurielle, Athena Thisbe, Aurora Gwendolyn, and Aurielle Thisbe would all be fantastic names. Inara Gwendolyn seems like it would be a bit much for a little girl, but Iggy is a cute nick name. I love Gwen as a nick name as well. I think Thisbe Lavinia would be absolutely gorgeous.
