    Future Daughters..

    We're not planning on having another until Juni is at least 2 so we have a while yet, but I can't stop thinking about names!

    Me & OH decided that we'd have one more then we'll finish, unless something unexpected happens.

    Some names that we had on the list for Juniper:
    Halcyon
    Alycone
    Marigold
    Mariposa
    Delphine/Delphina
    Anthea
    Xanthe or Xanthia

    But none stand out now that we read over them again. Halcyon, Alcyone, Xanthe & Xanthia are pretty but I worry about how usable they are. When I hear Delphine & Delphina, all I hear is Dolphin. Marigold & Mariposa are both beautiful but me & OH cannot agree on them at all. I prefer Mariposa but he prefers Marigold. Anthea is the only one that we might consider but matching initials is something we want to avoid unless we like nothing else.

    The middle name would either be Winter, Rue, Poet or Sailor (All have some meaning to us)

    So I'd love to hear some names that you would put with our children's names! PS: Our children's names are Astoria Lark, Matteo Fox, Reverie Anwen & Juniper Luelle!

    Thank you in advance I look forward to hearing your suggestions.

    Xanthe is my fave first name.

    Winter or Sailor for a middle. (Sailor has meaning to me too)
