    Garnet is mine & my daughter's birthstone as well. I actually like the name January even moreso!

    Garnet is a tough one because it has a bit of a hard sound. But really I guess not any more than Violet!

    Arabella Garnet does connect the Ara & the birthstone

    Something like Bree could almost work for Barbara as well. Or Brea or Brielle?

    I have a colleague who just named his daughter Barbara after her Bubby (his mother) She is growing into this name beautifully. At first it seemed a bit musty, but now his daughters Emma and Barbara seem like the perfect sibset. Especially if you pronounce the full three syllables, Bar-Bar-Ah. It's quite lovely.
    Latest list:

    Girl: Lulu, Eden
    Boy: Leo, Wallace, Grady

    Mommy to one sweet little boy who I loved naming Lennox Andrew Michael (Lex for short)

    I also have a special Barbara so I've pondered this tool

    Barbry/Barbre/Bairbe- all pronounced bar-bree
    Baibre- rhymes with Avery, bay-bree

    Same meaning as Barbara (foreign/stranger)
    Elodia

    Fox * Rohan * Jade * Shea * Eden * Blaise * Greer
    Lotus * Noor * Tallulah * Jasper * Linden * Arden

    I would use a B first name with Garnet as the middle name. I am not sure of your style but here are a variety of options.

    Beatrice Garnet
    Bianca Garnet
    Blythe Garnet
    Brynn Garnet
    Brooke Garnet
    Bettina Garnet
    Bethany Garnet
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.
