    I commented on your girls' thread too-- I definitely feel you need something with a bit of exoticism to match Matvey, even if it isn't explicitly Russian.

    From the suggestion above, I really liked Anton, Casimir and Ilya [though in the US Ilya might be seen as feminine by people completely unfamiliar with it].

    Thanks for all the replies!

    Out of the suggestions fo far I like ( still haven't brought them to DH)..

    Anton
    Nicolai
    Roman
    Gavril
    Pavel ( maybe too Russian??)

    i also quite like Natan but fear that they would end up as Mat and Nat... a little weird for me!

    want something that is fairly easy to pronounce and not too OBVIOUSLY Russian. We often get asked WHAT ethnicity Matvey (the name) is... I like that people don't know right off the bat!

    I like all of the "Alex..." suggestions BUt Matvey's middle name is Alexander so those are all out!

    Any other NON or not obviously Russian suggestions?

    I like Pascal for you. Matvey and Pascal sound really good together, I think. Also, I love Santiago. I'm not sure it's usable for a non-hispanic family, but it's a really cool name.
    Some others you might like:
    Nico
    Levi
    Conrad
    Nev
    Piotr/Piet
    Paolo

    Girl: Apolline Iris- Polly, Clothilde Juno- Chloe

    Since your first child was named after a beloved relative on your husband's side of the family, maybe you could name this one after someone you love dearly on your side of the family? Still fits a theme!

    Felix, Arkady (it has ties to Alexander, I believe), Viktor, Ivan, Isaak, Iosef (Josef), Lev/Leo, Luka, Sebastian, Maxim (I know you said no M names, but Max looks nice next to Maty), Peter, Erik, Julian (Jules).

    I think Matvey looks best with the ones in bold.

    Atticus is Greek, so that would be kind of strange next to your first boy's, just as Santiago would be.
