    A sister for…

    I'm almost 100% set on using Henry John (nn Huck) as a name for a future son. He'd go by Huck almost all the time. I'm now just trying to think of girls's names that might go with Huck. What doesn't help is that I generally like unisex/surnamey names for girls, which may not work as well.

    Some of the names on my list, to get a feel for my style:

    Elliott
    Everly
    Bellamy
    Campbell
    Connelly
    Waverly
    Greer
    Quinn (would likely not use this w/ Huck due to Quinn/Finn rhyme)
    Elle
    Marlowe
    Margo
    Greer
    Waverly
    Leighton

    Any suggestions are much appreciated (FNs and/or combos).

    Thanks so much!

    What a dashing name!

    Suggestions:
    Sage
    Blaire
    Reese
    Greta

    Names from your list I think would work beautifully:
    Everly
    Elle
    Margo (Henry and Margo? So adorable!)
    | Arabella Monet | Henrietta Plum | Isolde Noor | Agatha Ruby | Marian Primrose |
    | Emma Berlin | Cressida Lilac | Jessamine Lark | Vivienne Snow | Ireland Eve |

    Of yours my favorite is Elliott/Elle with Everly close behind!
    Some other girls names you might like...
    Willow
    Harper
    Eloise
    Cassidy
    Blythe
    Hazel
    Piper

    or Keeping with the Henry to Huck, you could stick with the proper-fn-with-fun-nn theme?

    Charlotte- Charlie
    Caroline- Callie
    Veronica- Ronnie
    Josephine- Josie/Jo
    Philippa- Pippa/Pip
    Aurora- Rory
    Elizabeth- Libby/Ellie
    Penelope- Penny/Nelly/Poppy

    I think Huck and Libby or Huck and Nelly would be adorable!

    Hmm. A number of these could work, but some don't fit as well because they are so modern next to classic Henry or they are close enough to classic boys' names themselves that they would sound like brothers. Here are some thoughts:

    Elliott - consider Elodie.
    Everly - consider Evelyn.
    Bellamy - this one could work, except it's a little rhymey with Henry. What about just Belle?
    Campbell - I don't really love this name, but I think it could work with Henry somehow.
    Connelly - consider Constance (nn Tansy if Connie is too much).
    Waverly - consider Aveline.
    Greer - this could work.
    Quinn (would likely not use this w/ Huck due to Quinn/Finn rhyme) - maybe hold it for a middle name, it could give a more uni feel to a more femme first name if you find one you like. Margo Quinn would be nice.
    Elle - could work, I think I like Belle better.
    Marlowe - could work, I'd like the spelling Marlo better.
    Margo - this would be very nice!

    What about some names grounded in history that have a more masculine/strong feel or history?

    Allison
    Alix
    Frances
    Jane
    Joan
    Josephine
    Vivian
