    Sibling for Lysander

    I don't actually have any children at the moment. But I do love the name Lysander, and I couldn't picture naming my first son any other name. What I was wondering was if anyone had suggestions for a sibling name that goes well with Lysander. I thought of Aurora, and Astoria. I love Aurora, but I guess I don't think it flows too well. And nobody I know can even pronounce Astoria. For some reason I can't think of any other boy names either. For some reason Klaus comes to mind, but my boyfriend can't stand that name. Could anyone possibly help?

    Firstly, Lysander may very well be my favorite name of all time, so great choice.

    Clio -I like Clio with Lysander because they are both of Greek origin. Clio means "glory" and is the name of the muse of history.

    What about Gwendolyn or Ariel?

    I also really like Everett and Nathaniel. I think they sound nice with Lysander even though they aren't the same style. Maybe Rafael? Daniel?

    Lysander is beautiful, romantic and magical! I hope you get a chance to use it.

    Astoria is difficult to pronounce? Since when? It's uh-stor-ree-ah/aas-stor-ree-ah (the first syllable being like the word as), no? Aurelia is similar in sound and goes well with Lysander.

    From your list, I like Aurora, Rafael and Nathaniel. They go best with Lysander in my opinion.

    Lysander and Ophelia would make a gorgeous sibset. I love this name, and think it goes well with Harry. (Harry Lysander is one of the combinations mentioned in my sibset.) Other names you could consider are:

    Lysander and Adeline
    Lysander and Beatrice
    Lysander and Amalia
    Lysander and Tabitha
    Lysander and Theodora

    Lysader and Balthazar
    Lysander and Julian
    Lysander and Octavius
    Lysander and Lucian (this one might be a bit of a stretch since both names begin with 'L')
    Lysander and Claudio
    I'm a Teenberry who is mad about names, royals & history. Not expecting, just collecting.
