Just Playing (Planning Ahead...?)
So, I've got Eliza Wren and Gwendolen Iris on my list. Then Phoebe.
Question - Phoebe Marilla or Phoebe Mariel?
(Trying to subtly honor some familial Mary-names, Marie and Marion. I know Marilla isn't really a Mary variant.)
I've got Archer on my boy list. I really like Jude, too. Two in the back burner list are Toby and Holden. Someone suggested Ellis and Hollis - I've long appreciated both.
Question - Clearly Eliza and Ellis could never be siblings, but is Hollis usable for a boy these days?

Favorites - Eliza, Phoebe, Juliet, Archer, Ronan, Jude

I like Phoebe Mariel too.
I think of Hollis as more feminine, but only because I know a Hollis that is a chick. So, that may be a completely isolated association. I think Eliza, Gwendolen, Phoebe and Jude make a lovely sib-set though.
I really enjoy leahmarie512's suggestion of Tobias with the nn of Tobymamacravings.com
