    Would like suggestions on name of a fourth child

    My mother is currently pregnant with baby number 4 and I would love some help offering her suggestions. My naming style isn't in sync with what she likes though. The other children are Christopher Lee (21), Nicholas James (17), and Alicia Danielle (14). It would be nice if suggestions were in this vein of thinking. To add to complications, if she knows someone with that name, she will refuse to use it. We don't know the sex of the baby yet, so suggestions for either sex would be helpful. Thank you in advance.

    Re: Would like suggestions on name of a fourth child

    That's so nice of you to ask for naming help for your mother! You must be Alicia. It sounds like your mom loves classic names, and some classic names that are stylish on Nameberry right now are:

    Girls:
    Alice
    Amalie
    Beatrice
    Catherine nn Cate - Katherine nn Katie and Kate have been kind of overdone, but I do love them so much!
    Cecily/Cecilia nn Celia, Ceil, etc.
    Chloe - very popular.
    Eleanor nn Ellie, Ella - popular, Nell and Nora are really cool.
    Elizabeth nn Lizzy, Libby - very popular, but the nn Libby is tres cool.
    Evelyn nn Evie
    Frances nn Francie
    Georgia - hipster name
    Hope
    Iona
    Iris
    Isla
    Jessamyn
    Laura - this has been popular, now isn't used as much. It's my daughter's name and I love it!
    Lila - going to get popular
    Lillian nn Lily - popular
    Madeleine nn Maddie - this is very popular. Might be overdone.
    Matilda nn Mattie, Tillie, Tilda
    Millicent nn Millie
    Natalie, Natalia - very popular
    Penelope nn Nell
    Phoebe
    Rosalie, Rosalind, Rosemary, Rosamond, Rose nn Rose, Rosie, Romy - very cool.
    Ruby - more of a vintage name, less classic.
    Sylvia/Sylvie
    Talullah nn Lulah
    Tessa - popular, so pretty, can stand on its own or be a nn for Theresa.
    Vivian nn Vivi

    Some of these names sound old ladyish or out of it, but they are very cool. I typed popular next to the names that have hit the mainstream pretty hard. I left out most of the names in the top ten like Ava and Sophia. Other posters will think of many more choices I am sure.

    Boys:
    You could stick to really popular boys' names such as:
    John nn Jack
    Joseph nn Joe
    William nn Will
    Thomas
    Henry, Harry could be his nn.
    Alexander nn Zander
    Daniel
    George
    Isaac
    Caleb
    Miles
    Owen
    Oliver

    I just read your post that you are actually Christopher Lee! How interesting! Is Nicholas a girl, too? Is your mother looking for looking for something similar, or has her style changed? What kinds of names does she like now?

    No, Nicholas is actually the only boy. I'm not always able to peg her style. I do know that she loves for names to flow. Since I was little I remember her saying that the names she chose for us kids were something she could easily yell if need be. She almost named me Samantha, my sister was almost Chloe, and my brother was almost Andrew John. My brother was Andrew up until she laid eyes on him and exclaimed that he was not an Andrew, so he became Nicholas. I know she likes names that aren't uniquely spelled and she won't use the names of people she knows. For girls names she likes ones that aren't really dramatic sounding/looking. She has an extremely popular name from her generation, so she doesn't want something too popular but that doesn't necessarily leave common names out. For example, she likes Aidan but wouldn't use its relatives like braydon, jaydon, caydon, etc. She isn't too concerned with crossing gender naming lines, obviously ;) . A few names that I like that she's NOT keen on are Emery, Avery, Teagan, Ashby, Samuel, Isaiah, Jonah....names of that nature. Any suggestion I will certainly pass on to her for consideration, so don't feel limited to anything, it has been quite a few years since she has had to name anyone, so her style may have changed.
