    I love the idea of a sibset of Theodore, Louisa & Gwendolen (much prefer this spelling)! Three of my favourites, great choices

    Annora Juliet, Elspeth, Verity, Zelda, Josephine, Marianne, Rosemary Constance
    Edmund Henry, Wesley, Jonah, Gilbert, August, Winston, Hugh Theodore

    I see my questions have been pushed to page two by all this span on the forums today......I haven't posted in a while, I hope this is not a regular occurrence now!

    Anyway, Thanks for the honest opinions - I'm well aware that matching "sib sets" are not exactly a necessity, but I think its relatively important to me that my children's names evoke the same style/ feeling....which is the reason for my hesitation over Louisa and Gwendolen. We are planning on having at least two more children, so I would like to have a solid list of contenders that make sense as siblings.

    @mischa - thanks for the suggestions! Helena, Augusta, Henrietta, Rosalind, Eugenie, and Winifred are among my favourites (my husband is another story LOL)

    It's just a personal thing, I love the name Louise!

    And the spam thing, it started yesterday, I'm sure it will end soon-ish.

    Louisa and Gwendolyn/Gwendolen (like both spellings) are both beautiful and go wonderfully with Theodore! I don't know a Gwendolyn or a Gwendolen so I'm not sure which spelling you would have an easier time with it. I love mischa's suggestions too- Rosalind, Eugenie, Helena and Augusta are pretty much right outside my favourites list.

    I'm with @bonfireazalea - I love both Louisa and Gwendolyn/Gwendolen, and I agree they are both wonderful with big brother Theodore! I mainly love both for their literary cred (that, and the Welsh connection to Gwendolen!).

    From what I've researched/been told, Gwendolen is the proper feminine Welsh spelling, but Gwendolyn is more common in the US. Personally, as someone who's essentially a quarter Welsh, I feel almost bound to the proper Welsh spelling (plus, how I adore the connection to Gwendolen Fairfax of The Importance of Being Earnest!), but I've just always found Gwendolyn more aesthetically pleasing, and since I have a feeling that'd be the easier of the two to live with in the US (although I don't think either would be terribly bad), that's what I'd go with.

    I personally prefer Gwendolyn/Gwendolen to Louisa, but I like Lulu/Lou Lou better as a nn than Gwen or Dolly (personally, I prefer Winnie). But I like Theodore and Louisa better as siblings, they just seem a tad bit more balanced. However, I think in the long run, something like Theodore, Louisa, and Gwendolen would be just stunning!

    Good luck!
