    Question WDYT of our Short List?

    So DH and I have been talking baby names and we wanted to get some feedback on our current short list. I have a few with non-negotiable middles but most have no middles at all as of yet (I find middle names SO hard). My personal favorites are Fox, Aria, and Elowen so ideally I'd love to use all 3. I'm really leaning towards Fox Thomas, Aria Estellise, and Elowen as siblings but I absolutely would love your feedback and thoughts on the sibsets or names individually.

    Boys
    Fox (would be paired with Thomas as a middle - DH middle name)
    Caspian (undecided middle - looking at (Hale, Sparrow, Oliver,Xavier but open to suggestions) nn Cas
    Elijah (undecided middle)
    Ian (undecided middle) - Maybe toss Ian in favor of Caspian as Ian is in Caspian?

    Girls
    Aria (would be paired with Estellise as a middle)
    Elowen (undecided middle - looking at Fable, Lyra, Snow, Sonnet and Story or maybe something else?)
    Azure (undecided middle)
    Shiloh nn Shy (potential middle of Fallon or Juliette)

    Hmm. If I had to create sibling sets out of your names, it'd be:

    Caspian & Aria -- I like how those two look and sound together.
    Caspian & Azure -- Both are exotic
    Caspian, & Elowen -- though the "an/en" endings might be too match for you?
    Elowen & Azure -- both have a fantasy edge to them
    Fox & Elowen -- Both are nature oriented IMO.
    Elijah, Ian & Shiloh -- Your more common / less unusual names.

    I think Caspian, Aria and Elowen make a nice sibset.

    I'm undecided on how I feel about Caspian & Fox together, but I think it's because they're both bold choices which makes me want to say yes, but stylistically are quite different. One is romantic, literary and exotic. The other is strong, short and a common animal around here. I'm going to go with yes.

    Combos:
    Caspian Hale
    Elowen Fable

    Thank you so much for the feedback! DH and I are both into the whimsical fantasy type names although he prefers shorter names like Fox and Aria while I tend to like longer ones like Caspian and Elowen. We're totally okay with the kids names stylistically not matching as long as it's not like Caspian and Fred or something that really clashes.

    My favourites:
    Fox
    Aria
    Caspian
    Shiloh

    I LOVE Shiloh and the nickname you have listed, so cute!
    Shiloh Fallon could be a cute combo

    I really like Fox Thomas and Caspian Hale as combos

    Aria Estelliese is also lovely, and I think Aria and Fox in particular really go great together, they are of similar length and style, the harsher and flowier sounds really balance each other out and they look great written down

    And also, even though Elijah isn't my favourite, the combo Elijah Wolf is awesome! The more badass middle is so great with the more well behaved biblical first

    Thank you for all of the feedback! I really like Elijah paired with Wolf as well. When I combine it with other middles I'm not as keen on it and I'm wary of the popularity.

    Fox and Aria are our top 2 names with Elowen and Caspian being second. Shiloh Fallon is gorgeous! I had never even thought of that combination before. Fallon has always been a name I've adored and I think Shiloh is just so gentle and sweet.
