    Unexpected sibling

    Hello all I'm new here. My name is Jayne and I have a 10 year old daughter named Raven. I am currently unexpectedly 28 weeks pregnant with my second child. We don't know this babies gender and aren't really sure where to go name wise.

    My top 5 girl picks are:
    Josie
    Amber
    Allyson
    Lainey
    Molly

    DH top 5 girls:
    Emmalynn
    Jordan
    Ryan
    Aspen
    Kaelyn

    Rae's picks:
    Scarlett
    Madison
    Katelyn
    Chloe
    Hayley

    My boys picks:
    Emmett
    Bennett
    Samuel
    Jakob
    Matthew

    DH picks:
    Weston
    Ashton
    Kayden
    Ryan
    Colin

    Rae's picks:
    Eli
    Declan (the name of her first boyfriend when she was 6)
    Myles
    Nicholas
    Alexander

    What do you all think of the name choices? We were quite unprepared. After several miscarriages over the last 8 years we just thought that Raven would be our only blessing.

    Thanks so much everyone.

    Josie
    Aspen
    Scarlett
    Emmett
    Bennett
    Samuel
    Weston
    Ashton
    Colin
    Eli
    Myles
    Alexander

    My favorites would be Aspen (I like that both your name & your daughter have an e n/ n e at the end, and it would be nice if you all matched

    And Eli &/or Colin for a boy. Colin & Raven sound very nice together.

    Also Scarlett and Raven would be a little matchy, but cute matchy-could also use Amber for that same effect, but I like Scarlett much, much more. Plus they're both grownup, rich colors.

    I think Raven is such a gorgeous, mature sounding name that I felt like a Hayley, Emmalynn or Ryan would be too young to match it.

    Congratulations & best of luck!

    One girl from each list:
    Molly
    Aspen
    Chloe

    Favorite girl overall:
    Definitely-by-far Molly. It's a sweet name, not too trendy or popular, and offsets Raven really well.

    One boy from each list:
    Emmett
    Weston (actually Ryan, but it's awfully close to Raven)
    Alexander

    Favorite boy overall:
    Tougher, because I like both Emmett and Alexander. Emmett hits that sweet spot of not being too trendy or popular and offsetting Raven, though.

    Overall, I really prefer your name taste to your husband's and daughter's. Everyone had nice choices, though. I have to advise against Kayden and Kaelyn, though. Not attractive names, in my opinion.

    We don't know what your husband's name is, but with
    Jayne & Raven

    I'd pick:
    Delaney Aspen - nn Lainey

    This would still give you an "n" sound within the name, without overdoing the family's "n" endings.. plus, you will have then combined both your favorites.

    You have an innumerable amount of combos from all 3 of your boys lists! My favorites are: Bennett, Colin, Nicholas, Alexander, Samuel, Weston. Try:

    Alexander Weston
    Matthew Alexander / Matthew Weston
    Samuel Bennett/ Samuel Colin / Samuel Alexander
    Colin Nicholas / Colin Bennett
    Eli Declan
    Ashton Myles (I prefer the spelling Miles tho)


    *Have you ever thought of the name Corbin for a boy? it actually means "raven" and goes along with your "n" endings and seems to run along the same style as your name list.
