    Brother for Tabitha and Jemima

    Hello!

    Which of these names do you like with sisters Tabitha and Jemima?
    Oliver
    Daniel
    James
    Theodore
    Frederick
    Benjamin

    Any other names you think would "fit"?

    Thanks, Liz x

    Tabitha and Jemima are kind of spunky names so I would go with their natural "fit" brother, Oliver! I also think that some other Biblical names might work well in your sibset: Gideon, Samson, Gabriel, Eli or Asher. Also recommended is Sebastian! All the best!
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I avoid sibling sets with the same initials so I'd pass on Theodore and James. Trust your instincts and go with Oliver. Frederick is too much of a classic with such eclectic sisters. Daniel and Benjamin are overused Biblical names. The starting O-name sounds great with girls' names than end with -a giving it a distinct masculine vowel start.

    Team Oliver on this one as well. Everyone else mentioned why the other choices are dreadful (initials, syllables, blah, blah, blah). Don't over think and just go with it.
    Eddie (to Saffy): Oh, darling, Mummy loves you. On the day you were born I *knew* I wanted you...
    Patsy: However, the day after...
