A new brother or sister for Colson and Briar
Hi Nameberry, I've known about Nameberry for a while, but have only recently joined as my husband and I are having a difficult time deciding on our third child's name. We already have a 4-year-old son named Colson Bennett and a 2-year-old daughter named Briar Avalon. We are looking for something "peppy" and bright. We have not found out whether we are having a boy or a girl.
We have been having a lot of trouble agreeing on any names at all. We both love Roxy for a girl but we don't like Roxanne or Roxanna and can't see Roxy as anything more than a nickname. Any suggestions on full names for Roxy? Other names we like for girls are Kenna, Brookley, Monet, Maelys, and Kipling. We think Kenna, Brookley, and Kipling are all lovely, but something just doesn't seem right to us. We also quite like Monet and Maelys (pronounced May-ah-lees) but feel they don't match our other children's names. Plus, we fear all these names are a little too offbeat for us, and would prefer something a TINY bit more "normal". Do you think our possible choices are too "weird"? For girls we like upbeat, feminine names.
For boys we have agreed on barely any names. We are again considering Kipling but think it's a little too "weak". Boys names we have considered in the past are Colter, Fletcher, and Wilder.
All suggestions are welcome and greatly appreciated!

Congrats on the pregnancy! Colson and Briar are awesome names, kudos mama!
I agree, Roxy is the coolest nickname ever. I don't mind Roxanne as a full name for her, but i don't think she is the perfect fit with Colson and Briar. It seems like you like fun, high energy names, and you might consider:
Eloise/Charlotte/Penelope nn Lola (really just liking the nn Lola for you!)
Hadley nn Haddie
Poppy (short for Penelope?)
Hawthorne nn Hawk
long list, is this the sort of name you're looking for?
