    In Love With Soraya, Need Sibling Suggestions!

    We've finally found a name we both adore, Soraya. We'd love to use this, but we're unsure on what names would work for siblings. So far, we have these;

    Michael
    Daniel
    Landon
    Simon

    Farrah
    Acacia (ah-kay-see-uh)
    Lila (Lee-lah)
    Yasmin

    We'll take any suggestions, but we prefer names that are flexible and, for girls, we prefer uncommon names.
    Soraya-Tallulah-Priya-Tiana-Georgiana-Beatrice-Annabella-Arabella

    Patrick-Michael-Daniel-Simon-Oliver-Jake-Brogan-Elliot-Joel


    ~no babies yet, just in the planning stages~

    Soraya is certainly a pretty name! I just want to mention that, a couple of years ago, a Berry used this name for her daughter and underwent MAJOR name regret and grief afterwards -- largely due to unexpected and persistent mispronunciations of the name. As I recall, she was reluctant to repeatedly correct people. (I did a search for the threads on this topic, but cannot find them.) My point is just to be aware that people will pronounce the name different ways and make sure you are prepared to handle it. If you are persistent in correcting people, that would probably help. Best wishes!

    My immediate thought was Soraya and Fraser. Idk if that is too uncommon for your boys style though.
    Not expecting, just planning and building lists!
