Planning ahead for the next one(s)
So, I think its obvious my husband and I are a little out-there in the naming department. We had a hard time naming our second daughter and I found that extremely stressful. To avoid that anxiety with our next pregnancy I'm trying to get a head start on making a list before we TTC. We intend to have at least one more child, there is also a good chance we would have fraternal twins due to my genetics.
We plan to have some kind of nature name for the middle, for all our kids. My husband also likes family names, those have asterixes... If we used those it would be along with another nature themed middle. Coincidentally Rosemary and Coral both being nature themed also happen to act as family honour names (for my mother & for my husband and grandmother).
Do you think any of these go particularly well alongside Azula Rosemary & Indira (Indie) Coral?
Can you think of any great combos, or other suggestions?
Atlas (this is our favourite boy name right now), Archer, Cole, Fox, Heath, Heathcliff, Hawthorne, Orson, Rufus, Sage, Sterling, Thornton, Thorvald, Zane, Zephyr
Erickson (for Erick)*, James*, Jason*, Micah (for Michael & Michele)*... We also have a John & a Rudy we'd love to honour, but not crazy about the names themselves. Jade.
Anja, Audra, Elowen, Esparanza, Frida, Gwyneth (honours Gwen)*, Gaia, Hazel, Juniper, Lorelei, Mira, Niamh, Nova, Perlita, Pomeline, Rudy (for some reason I prefer this for a girl over a boy)*, Ruby, Saffron, Valencia, Willow, Zafira, Zia, Raven, Winslet, Maeve
Additions from your suggestions:
Boys: Forest, Linden, Ivan (for John)*, Mitchell (for Michael/Michele)*, Bear, Crane, Hendrik, Rohan, Mars, Caspian
Girls: Iris, Jade, Eleni, Junia, Rue (for Rudy)*, Perdita, Cosima, Elora, Freya

Your naming style is amazing.
I think Elowen, Juniper, and Saffron are my favourites for the girls.
As for boys I honestly think Atlas is just the most perfect name. I also really like Micah and Zephyr.
As for nature names what about...

I think Audra is a really neat name but might be a little bit matchy with Azula.
With your girls, I like Lorelei or Mira for a third daughter and Cole or Heath for a boy.
So, not to hijack your thread but I was wondering about Azula...would you tell me a little bit about how you picked it? It's got a very pretty sound. I'm trying to look up its meaning/origins and I'd love to hear more about the name. Are you and your husband really into "Avatar: The Last Airbender?"Mom to James Daniel (9), William Joseph (8), Elise Marie (7), and Zachary Allan (baby)
Serena (Seri), Amy, Diana, Kate, Adele, Georgia, Audrey, Lucy, Linnea, Clara
Thomas, Henry, Orin, Arthur, Samuel
DH's "approved" list:
Seri, Amy, Diana, Lucy, Kate/Katie/Katherine, Audrey
Thomas, Martin ("maybe")

I think you need a fabulous name to go with your daughters names. I think Atlas and Esparanza are wonderful choices to go with Azula and Indie. Atlas Fox(x) James is perfect. Most of your other choices for boys just don't seem special enough to work in the first name spot with your daughters' names. (I do like them, though.)
I would eliminate the following as first name choices:
Archer, Cole, Erickson*, Heath, Heathcliff, James, Jason, Micah, Sage, Sterling, Thornton, Zane
Audra, Frida, Gwyneth, Juniper, Gaia, Lorelei, Mira, Nova, Rudy, Ruby, Willow
Since Esparanza means "hope, expectation", I think it would be nice with one of the following (or a name that means the following):
truth, love, faith, peace, etc. Carys and Ife mean love. One of the meanings for Shiloh is peace.
Nature names that may pair well with Esparenza:
Magnolia (or Nolia)
Other names to consider (girls and boys): Calliope, Calypso (boy or girl), Bixby, Briar, Rafferty, Ashby, Gatsby, Sequoia (boy or girl)Son: Jacob Milton
Jensen, Althea, Alliyah, McKaili, Lilliana, Everly, Briar, Kiley, Madilyn, Athena
Elijah, Noah, Sebastian, Theo, McKia
