    Little Sister for Rooney

    Hi Everyone,

    We have a three year old daughter named Rooney and are having a difficult time agreeing on a name for her little sister (due to arrive in a few months).

    I really like Frances and Margo, but my husband doesn't think that they "fit" with Rooney. He likes Arlo, but I feel like it may be too trendy (considering the popularity of names like Marlow and Harlow).

    I would love any input on the above names and would really appreciate any suggestions that you might be willing to share for a sibling name for Rooney.

    Thank you!

    Hello, welcome to Nameberry!
    May I say I like Rooney a lot? It's so spunky and fun!
    From your list, I adore Frances. However, I have to agree it doesn't quite fit with Rooney. Neither does Margo. But I think Arlo makes a great brother - it also has spunky, cheerful vibe and sounds stylish. I don't know any Arlos so I would not say it's trendy.
    How about:
    Ginger
    Piper
    Willow
    Everly
    Blair
    Perry
    Dagny
    Jill
    Astrid
    Hollis
    Blythe
    Blake
    Verity?

    Wow. That is a very hard name to pair indeed! I agree that Frances and Margo seem mistmatched with Rooney. Arlo is quite trendy/popular right now (I know one little girl and two little boys with the name), but it does share the unisex vibe.

    You could go with another Irish gender-bending surname?
    Rooney & Shea
    Rooney & Walsh
    Rooney & Sloan
    Rooney & Daley
    Rooney & Ivers
    Rooney & Lane

    Did you get the inspiration for Rooney from Rooney Mara (who in fact was born Patricia?) If so, maybe you'd like another more invented name used on a girl:
    Rooney & Veda
    Rooney & Tilda
    Rooney & Sigourney

    Ultimately, you might just choose a name you both love (if you can find one!) and the 'matching' factor of the sibset is just that you love both names.

    Love love talking names... my 'style' is more classic but I do love some surprising choices too...

    I like Rooney and Arlo, and I second the suggestions of Blair, Blake, Sloan, and Shea to pair with Rooney.

    Others (these are Irish surnames and I feel have the same vibe as Rooney):

    Rooney and Beckett
    Rooney and Brogan
    Rooney and Brennan
    Rooney and Carey
    Rooney and Cullen
    Rooney and Delaney
    Rooney and Fallon
    Rooney and Kennedy
    Rooney and Kinsella
    Rooney and Kirby
    Rooney and Larkin
    Rooney and MacKenna
    Rooney and Meegan
    Rooney and Quinn
    Rooney and Reilly
    Rooney and Shannon
    Rooney and Sheridan

    They all share that unisex vibe, but some are more masculine than others.
