    Names for Senia's possible brother.

    I also posted a thread in the girls section

    We have a daughter called Senia Hero and we're expecting our next baby on the 3rd September. We dont have many boys names that stand out to us so we need more help with the boys, for sure!

    Some names we like:

    Firsts:
    Oliver - Too common though?
    Evander
    Dante
    Calder
    Eben
    Alaric
    Lionel
    Ames
    Luther

    Middles:
    Bear
    Fox
    Atlas
    Abel
    Rainier

    Like our girls names list, many of our boys names end with the same sound as Senia's name which is something we're not keen on. We love all of these names but we need some inspiration!

    So what do you think of our current list, and do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Senia's such a great and unique name, that you really need something to match it. Oliver and Evander both feel too common to match it. Luther sounds like a bad guy (Lex Luther). Alaric is a name that would need some time to grow on me... Lionel makes me think of polyester, love songs, and cheap cologne... all mixed with the 80s (perhaps due to Lionel Ritchie). Calder is ok... I'm on the fence. Dante, Eben (a truly underused gem of a name), and Ames all fit the bill in my mind... but it completely depends on your surname (what it begins with, the final sound, and the #of syllables).
    I'd go old-school (ancient) for a brother:
    Darius
    Cyrus
    Caspian
    Marcus
    Aurelius
    August/ Augustus/ Augustine
    Constantine
    Julian/ Julius
    Adrian
    Basil
    Aeson
    Damian
    Alexander (although a bit too common)
    Antony
    Alexei
    Apollo
    Atticus
    Perseus
    Orion
    Phineas
    Lysander
    Cyril
    Corban
    Ivan
    Phillip
    Colum
    Sebastian
    Thaddeus
    Teague
    Theodore
    Cyprian
    Aurelian
    Cassian
    Cassius
    Clarence
    Clement
    Cornelius
    Crispin
    Caelum (Kai lum Latin for "sky")
    Leo
    Marius
    Maximilian
    Milo
    Quentin
    Quincy
    Tatian
    Valerian

    I agree with @tfzolghadr completely, Oliver and Evander seem too common next to your daughters name. Eben, Alaric, Dante & Ames are all great with Senia. Ames is interesting, do you pronounce it like James but without the J? I like it!

    Some suggestions:
    Dimitri
    Olivier (this is a good alternative to Oliver)
    Makai
    Winslow
    Roscoe
    Venture
    Zen
    Jem
    Jericho
    Arlo
    Tyne
    Aidric
    Bruno
    Gage
    Noble

    Have you considered any of your middles as firsts? I think Atlas & Abel would make great first names & they work well with Senia.

    We havent really thought about using them as a first name because we thought that they were a little to out there but they're still a possibility!
