    Brother for Fiona

    Hi there! This is my first post on nameberry. Here it goes....

    I am looking for a name for my baby boy due in September. My daughter's name is Fiona Grace. I like names that are heard of but not super common (not in the top 20). A few of my favorites are:

    Louis (nn Lewie)
    Simon
    Grant
    Leonardo or Leo
    Julian (nn Jude)
    Jude
    Thomas - too boring???
    Alfred (nn Alfie)
    Ewan
    Gavin
    Dawson
    Oliver
    Augustus (nn August)

    Fiona was named after my husband's eldest sister and it is Scottish (Husband's dad is from Scotland). This boy is going to be our last child so I'm worried if we don't name him a family name we will regret it.

    I would love to hear your opinions on my names and also would love recommendations.

    Thank you!!!

    Great!: any of these I think would work amazingly with Fiona and are wonderful names in their own right
    Ewan
    Gavin
    Oliver
    Grant

    Good options: good names, go fine with Fiona but not perfect, awesome mn choices too!
    Simon
    Jude
    Thomas

    Not my favorite, but okay
    Dawson - 's Creek, sorry, but I just can't get past that
    Julian (nn Jude) - meh, not a name I really like, an okay mn though
    Louis (nn Lewie) - same as Julian

    Don't like:
    Augustus (nn August) - I just don't really like this name, and with Fiona it clashes a bit IMO
    Alfred (nn Alfie) - okay, I don't mind it, but it's just not one I really love. What about Arthur?
    Leonardo or Leo - I like Leo, but I feel like a sibset of Leonardo and Fiona is a bit confusing. Leonard I'd like a lot more.


    not sure if you're also pulling from this list for mn options, but here's some:
    Ewan Thomas
    Oliver Jude
    Oliver Simon
    Gavin Jude
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

    I personally love Ewan and Fiona... that's quite a spectacular pair. One of my friends just had a son, Ewan, a few days ago. Everyone seems to love the name... it's unique, but almost everyone's heard of the name. I also find it to be quite a handsome name...

    Ewan Grant
    Ewan Thomas
    Ewan Oliver

    I'd also recommend Malcolm... Malcolm (nn Mac) and Fiona would be amazing...

    I love your name choices! And I think Thomas is due for a popularity spike. I did hesitate over Alfred, but Alfie and Fiona together are too cute for words. I'd probably go with Jude Thomas Alfred and nickname him Alfie (despite the movie).
