    Sibsets

    Right now we have 2 lovely little ladies Lilla Clare and Vivienne Grace. We have been talking baby names a lot lately since we are ttc baby #3(we have been for awhile) We think the girls are pretty well figured out but boys are harder, we like a lot of similar names.

    For Girls we were thinking
    Elinor June Cook
    Penelope Kate Cook

    we also like:
    Charlotte
    Caroline
    Iris
    Scarlett
    Tess

    Not so keen on using because of Lilla
    Clara
    Eliza
    Cecilia

    Not so keen on using because of Vivienne
    Adelaide
    Adeline
    Eloise
    Emmeline

    We also like short middle names
    June
    Kate
    Mae
    Faye
    Wren

    For the boys
    Henry
    Graham
    Theodore/Theo/Teddy

    August or Atticus or Fergus or Rufus
    DH really likes Atticus I really like August, we both like Rufus and we talked about using Fergus and Rupert together for a bit

    Rupert or Rufus

    Jasper or Oliver or Oscar

    middle names
    Beau
    Finn
    Flynn
    Jules
    Rhys

    So I'm looking for some suggestions on sibsets about what names fit well together to help narrow down our list. Middle name suggestions are welcomed. We hope to have a large family so 3 girls names and 3 boys names would be wonderful.

    What a great list you have! With Lilla Clare and Vivienne Grace, I like:

    Penelope Kate Cook (or even Penelope June) - I like June with your last name.
    Elinor June

    Henry Atticus or Henry Flynn
    Theodore August or Theodore Rhys

    I hope this helps!

    I like those combos they have a classic feel. I also had not considered pairing June with Penelope. We originally had Eleanor June picked out which looks lovely but we decided to go with the Elinor spelling instead and it doesn't look quite as pretty but Elinor Kate is quite nice as is Penelope June. Something to think about!

    Thanks so much for the input. DH and I talked and the names are:

    Lilla Clare, Vivienne Grace, Elinor June, Penelope Kate, Rufus Graham, Jasper Rhys and Simon Jules

    We love Elinor June while Jane Austin used both spellings we like how this one reflects the way we pronounce it
    We really want to like Felicity, it fits with our girls names so well but it is just to hissy
    We keep coming back to Penelope, I just swoon everytime I see it. Also over the years we have always paired a name ending in the ee sound with Kate, we just like the combo.
    We understand that Rufus is not for everyone but we both love it. My husband Ross comes from a long line of Ralph's and we wanted to use a name that started with R to honor that.
    Rupert was just a tad to serious next to Rufus and decidedly more british.
    Jasper plays off of Rufus nicely. I feely like it is a very catish name while Rufus is very doggie
    Oliver was just too popular
    Simon just seemed to fit and we are very happy.

    Thanks again your question and thoughts help us really see what we liked about each name or what we didn't
