    Sibling for sister Bayard "Bay"

    I'd love to know which of these names you think I should keep or axe. My husband only likes Marguerite and while I like the name in theory, I don't want to use it (and he doesn't like the nickname I chose for it). Last name sounds like Sawnders.

    Boy will almost definitely be Wolf Davis.

    Carolina (caroleenuh) Talmadge
    Clementine Davis "Clemmy"
    Liesel Talmadge
    Magnolia Talmadge "Aggie"
    Marguerite Davis "Clover"
    Olympia Talmadge "Oly"
    Roseline Talmadge "Rosie"

    Nicknames don't have to be used but if they were, these are my preferences. Middles are family names.

    Please mention any flow issues as well.

    Thank you!

    ETA: I didn't mean for it to sound like he hates these names, he just wants Marguerite. I think I can sell him on one of these, that's why I haven't cut them yet.

    If your husband doesn't like any of them but Marguerite and you won't use it, you should axe all the names and start over. Bayard is strong surname name and I would use something along those lines for a sister. (BTW, Wolf works very well with it.)

    Some possibilities:

    Teagan (Tea)
    Harper
    Windsor (Winne)
    Quinn
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

    Bayard and Clementine or Bayard or Magnolia ( I prefer the nn Noli for Magnolia) are my favorites from your list. The other seems clunky and not as usable. Sorry!
    *Magnolia Alice/ Evangeline Clover/ Adelaide Clover/ Athena Violet/
    Liliana Wren/ Georgiana Snow/ Eugenie Marigold*

    *Osias Grey/August Grey/Thatcher Fox/ Ignatius Grey/Hawthorne Flynn/
    Jasper August/ *

    I'm with you on Marguerite. I love all of your other names. Clementine (I like Lemon as a nn), Magnolia, Liesel and Olympia (I live in Washington- totally not usable here!) are on my own list. I think I like Magnolia best with Bayard. Bay and Nolie or Bay and Aggie are pretty cute together.

    How do you feel about Gretchen nn Greta or Gretel? I think they come from the same root as Marguerite, but they seem a little more fresh and modern to me. Maybe a nice compromise?
    Trying, trying, trying

    Current favorites:
    Boy: Asa Guillaume, Barnaby August
    Girl: Apolline Iris- Polly, Clothilde Juno- Chloe

    Because Bayard is such a strong name and has a unisex or masculine vibe, Marguerite and the other names on your list don't seem to fit because they are all pretty feminine. I agree with the above comments that a last name/unisex name would work better as a sibset.

    Some possibilities:

    Avery
    Aubrey
    Austin/Austen
    Blythe
    Carlyle
    Carmen
    Clemence
    Davis
    Eden
    Fallon
    Farrow
    Gatsby
    Granger
    Greer
    Keats
    Kennedy
    Kinsey
    Laurence
    Merit
    Murray
    Nolan
    Prescott
    Quinn
    Reese
    Rowan
    Ryan
    Sydney
    Shelby
    Sloane
    Sutton
    Tallis
    Tatum
    True
    Truman
