Brother Names: What are your favorites?
One of our favorite fantasies here on Nameberry is to name imaginary families. Today’s challenge: Tell us what brother names you’d choose for two sons.
Two boy names with matching initials? Traditional family names, or maybe a modern androgynous pair?
And how do your feelings about raising boys and boy name trends today factor into your decision?
To provide you with some inspiration, we’ve compiled popular brother name sets from the official US Top 50, as well as unique names for brothers, featuring suggestions from our Berries:
Popular Brother Names
Popular names for brothers are those that are matched in style, sound, or theme. However, well-matched sibling names shouldn’t be confusing – Levi and Luke is a better set than Luke and Duke.
Sets like Asher and Noah, which are both names from the Old Testament, or Benjamin and Theodore, which have the same cadence and number of syllables, are among our favorite brother names from the US Top 50:
Andrew & Matthew
Asher & Noah
Benjamin & Theodore
Carter & Wyatt
Elijah & Isaac
Henry & Lucas
Jack & Owen
Leo & Matteo
Levi & Luke
Oliver & William
Unique Brother Names
There are endless combinations of unique names for brothers. The same rules apply — the names should be coordinated, but not overly so. Our list contains real-life brother sets from our Berries as well as our own suggestions:
Angus & Edmund
Atticus & Leonidas
Balthazar & Solomon
Bodhi & River
Cruz & Renzo
Cyrus & Orion
Emilio & Luciano
Ezra & Jude
Field & Springer
Leland & Tate
If you were the parent of two sons, what would you name them, and why?

I would name my sons Brahms Vincent and Wilder Cassius. Brahms I just like as it kind of fits in with familiar names like James and Brooks, but has an unusual and musical twist. Also my grandma used to sing to me in the tune of Brahms Lullaby when I was little, so it has comforting connotations for me. Wilder after Laura Ingalls Wilder, whose books I adored as a young girl. I also just think it’s a pretty awesome name in its own right, and together the two names strike the perfect balance of peaceful and adventurous. The middle names are just names I like, and see as being strong and suiting any age.
on October 29th, 2014 at 12:37 am
Right now, I’m choosing between Oscar and Ezra for our little boy but as I think about it, they would make great names for brothers.
on October 29th, 2014 at 12:43 am
Sullivan and Campbell would be my first picks- classic sound, but not names you hear everyday. Sadly, a close friend named her son Campbell, so we won’t be using it. If we ever have 2 boys they will probably be:
Sullivan Webster (Webster is a family name ) and Ian Ray (after both of our maternal grandfathers)
on October 29th, 2014 at 12:51 am
Well 2 boys? I have to go with my top 2 boy names right now.
James Patrick – Strong, classic with the wonderful nickname option Jamie or the opportunity to go strongly Irish and use his middle for a nickname Paddy. Patrick is a nod to family.
Collin Thomas – Handsome, recognizable but not overly popular. I once met a Collin who went by nickname Cole, thought it was such a neat idea. Thomas is a nod to family.
But who would get which name? Now there’s a question. Which would I use first, to be honest I simply can’t choose at this moment!
on October 29th, 2014 at 1:00 am
I do have two sons, and they are named Field Adrianus and Springer Holland.
on October 29th, 2014 at 1:13 am
It would have to be between Abel and Ernest or Abel and Oswin.
on October 29th, 2014 at 1:20 am
Hmmm… This is a tough one.
There are a few sibsets for all boys that I’d potentially use if I ever have two boys.
Hubby approved choices – Jack William and Owen Timothy – Jack is my DH’s favorite boy name, and it has definitely grown on me, William would be to honor DH’s family. Owen is one of my favorite boy names and is hubby approved, Timothy is my farher’s name.
Guilty Pleasure Choices: gotta have these on here. 🙂
Jasper Wade & Tobias Edmund
Dante Orlando & Armand Ludovic
Adam Joseph & Eli James
on October 29th, 2014 at 1:27 am
Balthazar & Solomon. Two of the coolest names I know.
on October 29th, 2014 at 1:56 am
I would name two brothers my top two boys names, Gabriel Ronan and Sebastian Henry.
on October 29th, 2014 at 2:52 am
Well at the moment I’d choose Chayse and Leo, but knowing me it always changes.
on October 29th, 2014 at 2:57 am
Sebastian and Jasper is legitimately one of my favorite sibsets. 🙂
Rivers/River and Bodhi.
Rivers/River and Phoenix.
Hugo and Phineas “Finn”.
Apollo and Atlas.
on October 29th, 2014 at 2:59 am
Beau and Rhett
Ezra and Jude
Jack and Essex
on October 29th, 2014 at 3:21 am
In a heartbeat they’d be…
Caspian Sherlock Walter & Phoenix Arthur Blaise
I have huge paragraphs as to why I love each name individually, but, in short, they both have meaning, they’ve been my favourites for ages, and I think Caspian & Phoenix go together perfectly.
on October 29th, 2014 at 3:30 am
There are a lot of sib-sets I like for two brothers. If I could choose on my own, without any input from SO, I think it would be:
Manuel & Cassius / Robin & Elias / Indigo & August
on October 29th, 2014 at 4:09 am
Jack Andrew and Liam David would be my choices.
on October 29th, 2014 at 5:05 am
@Daphodil, I love Indigo & August too! It’s another one of my fave boy sibsets.
on October 29th, 2014 at 5:28 am
Angus and Edmund. Love, love, love!
on October 29th, 2014 at 5:29 am
If i were naming them without hubbys input i would say Theodore Vincent Rhys and Gideon Jasper/Oscar Paul
with hubbys input it would be Xavier Benjamin and Paul/Theodore Vincent
on October 29th, 2014 at 6:00 am
Benedict and Angus
Eli and Hector
Henry and Augustus
Rufus & Patrick
on October 29th, 2014 at 6:15 am
I would have Tobias Herbert & Sebastian Drew – this is because I think Tobias and Seb sound really fitting as brothers without being too matchy, they’re names I have loved for years and are at the top of my list! Herbert and Drew are family honouring names, I would also consider giving them to second middle names Devon and Phoenix respectively, as these names also have significance to me, as well as sharing traits with each other such as being unisex and both places.
on October 29th, 2014 at 6:27 am
1st choice: Knox Elias
2nd choice: Quincy Hayes
on October 29th, 2014 at 6:32 am
I’d go with my classic top to boys names, Edward Daniel and Paul Robert. Both are after family members.
on October 29th, 2014 at 6:52 am
Working in child care I’ve come across:
Matthew and Andrew
Joshua and Dylan
Rhys and Finley
Louis, William and Oliver (love!)
Levi and Ezra
Alexander and Hugo
Jacob and Luca
on October 29th, 2014 at 6:55 am
Joseph Richard and Theodore Louis (Joey and Teddy)
Joseph and Theodore are two names I love, Strong and meaningful names
Richard is my dad’s first name and Louis is my SO fathers middle name
However, Guilty pleasure names
Josiah and Ezra
Wilder and Cooper for Laura Ingalls Wilder and James Fenimore Cooper
on October 29th, 2014 at 6:55 am
Realistically, something like Theodore (Teddy or Theo) and Nathaniel (Nate). I love both names and so does my family and I think they work really well together, with the similar length full names and similar length nicknames. Nate and Teddy!
Another I’d consider using shorter names (although I’m such a fan of long names with nicknames) would be Reed Leo and Duncan Andrew. Reed and Duncan sound like super cute siblings, Leo is a choice I’ve always wanted to use for a middle name and Andrew would be in honor of my grandmother Angie.
And of course there are my guilty pleasure pair, Barnaby and Archer (Archie), both of which my parents insist aren’t really names.
on October 29th, 2014 at 7:22 am
That’s funny! I just had my son in September. His name is Julian James.
For a brother, I too love Theodore (Teddy from Stand By Me) and Nathaniel.
I also love Landon and Gabriel.
on October 29th, 2014 at 7:34 am
Well the first one would get my favorite (and hubby approved) name:
Jude Caspian- Jude is a name I can see on a little boy or a grown man. It could work for someone who is quiet or the most popular high school quarterback. Caspian is just fun, whimsical and strong, it also sort of combines our dad’s names.
The brother would be either:
Oren Drake- His nn would be Oz (using our last initial) which we both love as a nn, Oren is soft but strong. Drake is a nod to my husband.
Bram Augustus- Bram is another soft but strong name. I like the originality of it but it doesn’t come across as ‘weird’ (at least I don’t think). Augustus is after my husband and his grandfather (both have August in their names).
on October 29th, 2014 at 7:37 am
If it were down to just me they would be Zachary James & Alexander Charles, the first names are because I’ve always loved them and nn’s Zach and Alex. James would be after his father and Charles would be after a very dear friend who passed away.
If it were OH and I choosing, Zachary James would stay but the second son would likely be either Michael, Malachi or Jonathon with either John, Charles or Michael as middle names.
on October 29th, 2014 at 7:43 am
I have two boys and they are Oliver Steven aand Rupert Benjamin…. ♡
on October 29th, 2014 at 7:48 am
We actually just had our second boy earlier this month! Our little guys’ names are Jude and Milo.
on October 29th, 2014 at 7:58 am
August and Theodore (Augie and Teddy)
Nathan and Noah
James and Seth
on October 29th, 2014 at 8:00 am
I already have one boy, so this is easy to dream about 🙂
1. Konrad Wolfgang
2. Hugo Frederick
Both middles are family names 🙂
on October 29th, 2014 at 8:30 am
Damian Felix and Flynn Patrick
on October 29th, 2014 at 8:33 am
This is hard because I love so many.
I already have a Nolan.
So…I would go with Nolan and Keegan. OR Nolan and Rowan.
on October 29th, 2014 at 8:40 am
I have 4 sons. When I named my oldest Paul, I immediately selected Mark as our top pick for the next boy. I love Paul and Mark as brothers. They are our big boys. Our third son is James which, while working with his older brothers’ names, really works best with our fourth son’s name – Andrew. I love James and Andrew as brothers too. They are our little boys.
on October 29th, 2014 at 8:45 am
Stefan Lucca Brooks and Breccan Tanner Elijah
on October 29th, 2014 at 8:57 am
Greggor/Gethyn Malachi and Metias Jonah ( I love Greggor and Metias as a sibset. Both are unique versions of more popular names- Gregory and Matthew.)
Jericho Truett and Judah Spencer (Judah and Jericho both being Biblical city names)
Luka and Micah
Ky and Asa
Roman and Atlas
on October 29th, 2014 at 9:01 am
If I were to go with the names I’ve already pre-chosen, they would be Reyes and Milo. Both family names (Milo is a take on a family name). If I were to go with names I’m loving right now… I guess I’m with those who are loving Wilder right now.
Wilder and August.
Theodore and Judah.
Cassius and Gunnar.
Any of those six with a Finn name (Finlay, Finnegan, Phineas).
I really don’t know!
on October 29th, 2014 at 9:04 am
I have one son, Thomas Caleb, who’s 23.
Were I to have two sons now, they would be George or William, Jonathan or Hugh.
on October 29th, 2014 at 9:05 am
My boys will be Matthias Evan and Sebastian Owen. Matthias would be a nod to my brother Matthew, and his initials would match my father’s initials.
on October 29th, 2014 at 9:07 am
I would name my sons Leon Marcus and Booker Sebastian. Leon and Marcus are my husband’s favorite video game characters. Booker and Sebastian are mine.
on October 29th, 2014 at 9:54 am
I have a boy, Conrad Vyas. After a long NICU stay, my husband and I decided that our children need strong names. So, we decided that if we have another boy he will be Leo Krishna. It is important for us to honor both our sons’ American heritage and their Indian heritage. 🙂
Guilty Pleasures would be Jackson and Sheridan.
on October 29th, 2014 at 10:07 am
I already have a Charlie and I think my top choice for a second is Miles. Charlie and Miles.
Others I’ve thought about:
Charlie and Leo
Charlie and Caleb
Charlie and Theo
Charlie and Nathaniel
on October 29th, 2014 at 10:13 am
Immediately, I would go with Amadeus Edward and Onyx Blaze. I want my sons to have unique, powerful names. Amadeus I just love, along with Onyx, but I also love the possible nicknames that come along with them. They are both strong first names as well. Edward is meaningful for me while Blaze is just simply rad. Amadeus and Onyx as brothers would be a stylish duo, I think. x
on October 29th, 2014 at 10:50 am
Just a note, the picture for this is of a boy and a GIRL…she’s got earrings and polkadots etc. lol.
on October 29th, 2014 at 10:56 am
Boy names are hard for me. I like classic names, but a bunch of them are already taken in my family. I have one boy and one due soon, their names are….
Leo & Frederick
If we have a third boy it’ll probably be Theodore (nn: Teddy)
on October 29th, 2014 at 10:57 am
Callum and Henry, because they’re the only boy names that make me want to name boys! ; P
on October 29th, 2014 at 10:58 am
Either Nathaniel James & Theodore Rupert or Nathaniel James & Sebastian Arthur
on October 29th, 2014 at 11:39 am
Sebastian and Jasper are so great!
I think I would go with Nathaniel and Calix. Nate and Cal.
on October 29th, 2014 at 11:57 am
I’d go for Harry Boniface and Prosper Jem.
on October 29th, 2014 at 12:02 pm
My favorite pair for brothers right now is Jonah & Samuel I like that they’re both biblical and have been around for years, and will be handsome on a little boy or an adult.
on October 29th, 2014 at 12:04 pm
Hmmm… probably Noel & Edgar or Noel & Bernard. Not sure about the second “son”!
on October 29th, 2014 at 12:23 pm
first can I say that the picture with this post is one of the sweetest things I have ever seen! literal tears in my eyes looking at it!
brothers I would do two Irish names, probably Cormac and Eamon.
on October 29th, 2014 at 12:36 pm
I have a Quinn Thomas. A brother would either be Brady Bartholomew or Tobin Stephan. All the middles are family names.
on October 29th, 2014 at 12:43 pm
For boys, I love family name, they’re so sentimental. If I had two boys one they would probably be Johann and Casmir, both family names. I’m not sure about middles but they would something more classic like Edward or James.
on October 29th, 2014 at 12:54 pm
This is hard because I love boys’ names, it’s my dream to have two sons, and I have several favorites. Peter David and Nolan Calkins, probably. Peter and Nolan are two classics that I adore. David is my husband’s name, and Calkins is my maiden name.
on October 29th, 2014 at 1:24 pm
Kenyon Drake & Apollo Xavier
Cree Wyatt & Penn Oliver
on October 29th, 2014 at 1:28 pm
I’d probably name my two sons; John Mackenzie & Callahan Levi. Johnny & Cal. My style in names is all over the place but these are my two current favorites. I could also end up with sons named Nash & Teague!
on October 29th, 2014 at 1:39 pm
Well, we’re expecting baby no.2 in a couple of weeks and currently trying to decide on a name if it’s another boy. Big brother is called Oskar. In the running at the moment are:
Oskar + Albert
Oskar + Alfred
Oskar + Anton
Oskar + Elliot
Oskar + Henry
Oskar + Lincoln
What do you think?
on October 29th, 2014 at 2:07 pm
If I were naming them today, Róbert Karl and Emil Davíð.
on October 29th, 2014 at 2:29 pm
I would choose Memphis James and August Xavier for my two sons.
Memphis: I fell in love with the name after hearing it in the movie Happy Feet as the father penguin. James: Is both my father and grandfather’s middle name and it flows well with Memphis.
August: I read the book the Fault in our Stars but didn’t really like the sound of Augustus but I liked the sound of August plus I like the nicknames Auggie and Gus. Xavier: Actually my friend suggested this as a middle name for August because she said it flows nicely with August.
Others I would use:
Ronan Sirius and Wiley Macsen
Edgar John and Hugo Rufus
Wallace Apollo and Willard Phoenix
Grayson Bartholomew and Christopher Munro
on October 29th, 2014 at 2:30 pm
We’ve agreed on Finn and Damian; Finn being my absolute favorite name, and Damian being his. But I’m not so sure I love it as a sibset, Finn and Damian are such different names. If I got to choose without any outside opinions, a second son would be Archer or Theodore or Shepherd.
on October 29th, 2014 at 2:36 pm
Beaumount & Grady
Garcia & Romeo
on October 29th, 2014 at 2:52 pm
I would name two boys Remington Bayleigh Angelo & Walker Koda Romeo.
Bayleigh is my grandma’s maiden name and Koda is a family name (from my husband’s side).
on October 29th, 2014 at 3:07 pm
Theodore Stephen (Theo) and Alastair John
Marcellus John (Marcel) and Raphael Stephen (Raph)
Stephen is my fiance’s middle name and his dad’s. Theodore was my great grandpa’s name and Theodoshia is my mother’s middle name. John was my grandpa’s name.
on October 29th, 2014 at 3:08 pm
We would love for our son Jonah to have a brother and often think of what we would name him. Our possibilities include Arlo, Abel, Amos, or Caleb. Caleb is probably the best match but a bit too popular for us now. Guilty pleasures are Otis, Barnaby, Lionel, and Moses.
on October 29th, 2014 at 3:20 pm
I have a little guy, so if he were to get a brother:
(with no input from SO): Liam Anthony and Jude Robert. Liam and Jude just sound like two of the coolest brothers
(with SO’s input): Liam Anthony and Patrick Robert. They just sound so very Irish, which is funny, because my husband and I are more German and Italian than anything else, although we both have some Irish roots.
on October 29th, 2014 at 3:26 pm
If I had two boys today, my first son would definitely be named Jonathan Rhys. I can’t decide if I like Roman Gabriel or Wesley Quinn more for the second boy.
on October 29th, 2014 at 3:38 pm
This is an interesting question as my second boy is due next week! Big brother is Samuel Edward and little brother is likely to be either Henry Thomas or Henry Julien. Our other ‘brothers’ at home are Finley Harbour (the yellow lab) and Augustus (the beta fish). I think I’ve learned that I like the traditional names for human brothers and the more stylish/daring names on the pets. 🙂
on October 29th, 2014 at 3:44 pm
I think about this a lot! We have a son, Bruno Xavier, and his father claims that “he only makes boys” so I am always thinking about possible brother names, haha!
Bruno Xavier & Abram River
Bruno Xavier & Griffin Booker
Bruno Xavier & Halston Drake
Bruno Xavier & Tobias Noble
My guilty pleasure boy sibsets are:
Samson (Sam) & Lionel (Leo)
Jasper & Orion
Shepherd (Shep) & Theodore (Theo)
Walter (Walt) & Blaise
on October 29th, 2014 at 3:49 pm
I would go with the classic, well-tried names. I want something I will always like, that are timeless, and that are unlikely to be usurped by the girls.
Michael and James (Mikey/Mickey and Jimmy)
Michael and Patrick (Mikey/Mickey and Packy)
Michael and John (Mikey/Mickey and Jack)
Michael and Thomas (Mikey/Mickey and Tommy)
Michael and Dominic (Mikey and Mickey)
Michael and Martin (Mikey/Mickey and Marty)
on October 29th, 2014 at 4:27 pm
Leonidas Peregrine Aurelio and Absalom Swithin Thaddeus
Owl William Zelig and Rumi Thyme Alfred
on October 29th, 2014 at 4:38 pm
I’d choose the names I love best: Noah Harrison & Malcolm Alexander or Malcolm Peter.
on October 29th, 2014 at 4:53 pm
My first would be James Martin, after my brother and mother. I love how strong and classic it is. My second would d be Henry William. William is my grandfather, and Henry is a name that I love.
on October 29th, 2014 at 4:55 pm
I’m with @GoodHope – I’d just go with my two favorites! So I’d more than likely end up with a Caleb and an Everett. 🙂 I just really love them together, and I can’t think of two boys’ names I love more than Caleb and Everett.
In the recent years, though, I’ve found so many boys’ names I love so much, though, so the idea of limiting it to JUST Caleb and Everett makes me rather sad–I’d try and give honorable mention to Peter and Grant and Caspar and Avery and Jack and Samuel and Zane and Gratian and Sebastian and Leo and Rory and Owen and so many others. I don’t know how I’ll ever give up so many favorites when it comes time to actually name a child. 🙂 But Everett and Caleb are easily my two favorites.
Full combos, if things don’t change, would likely be Caleb Elias Joseph and Everett Joshua Charles.
on October 29th, 2014 at 4:58 pm
Jasper Riley and Percy August
These names are very smart sounding for an adult but would also work for a spunky little boy. They could fit in any place with any personality yet still are super unique.
Asher Finn and Niall Ethan
These names are more relaxed and fun, yet still could work on any age. They’re trendy and unique with well known, kind of up and coming middle names.
on October 29th, 2014 at 4:59 pm
I really like Everett and Grant together.
on October 29th, 2014 at 5:00 pm
Boy #1 would be: Dorian Michael (I’ve always loved Dorian thanks to Oscar Wilde and Michael is a family name)
Boy #2 might be: Westley Edward (I’ve always loved Westley and Edward is a family name as well).
Dorian and Westley.
on October 29th, 2014 at 6:12 pm
I like Parker and Fletcher together, personally. Also Tierney and Malachy.
on October 29th, 2014 at 7:19 pm
I’d go with Matchbox and Twenty. just love those names and they have special meaning to me <3
on October 29th, 2014 at 7:24 pm
Maybe Eben and Dane.
Or Davenport and Neville.
Or Keir and Roan.
Or Fenton and Gordon.
Or Robert and Archie.
on October 29th, 2014 at 7:25 pm
Or Hamish and Tavish.
on October 29th, 2014 at 7:36 pm
While Samuel is my favorite name for a boy, I think I would do Edward and George.
on October 29th, 2014 at 8:04 pm
Rufus and Jasper – both are wholehearted handsome rumpled little gentlemen and together they make me swoon
on October 29th, 2014 at 8:36 pm
Jesse and Colton are my favorite boy names right now. They have a very cool, sporty feel. I would pair them with more classic names like Michael, William or Thomas.
on October 29th, 2014 at 9:35 pm
Fun! I am really liking Wyatt and Everett (something about “tt” in a name…). Or maybe Wyatt and Owen.
on October 29th, 2014 at 9:43 pm
For me this one’s easy…
I had two sons, with no input for the father, I would very quickly choose Kavanaugh James and Huckston Tanner. My top two boys names, they’ve been there for a while and I don’t see them changing anytime soon.
on October 29th, 2014 at 11:05 pm
Eden Trust & Mayer Nathaniel!
on October 30th, 2014 at 4:31 am
My little guy is Travis, and I’d love to give him a brother named Jesse or Beau. However, DH does not approve of those choices. Too “soft” for him, So if the baby I’m carrying is a boy, he will be Angus nn Gus! We both fell instantly in love with it, and have never doubted our choice. If we have a third son one day, he will most likely be a Harvey… Travis, Angus, and Harvey.
My GP brothers of the moment?
Oliver & Sebastian- they are exactly the same “flavor” of name to me and would age well.
Kirby & Jethro or Kirby & Zane
on October 30th, 2014 at 9:37 am
I have two boys named Spencer and Brennan. Other names on our list are Everett, Joel, Lawrence and Hudson. We have trouble picking and agreeing on boy names especially after already picking two!
on October 30th, 2014 at 2:08 pm
I love names that are classic but with a little bit if a twist. My favorites right now are:
Colin Blackburn – Family Name
on October 30th, 2014 at 5:57 pm
We have a little boy! Casper born last week, undecided on middles,
if it was purely my choice id have…
casper frederick vaughan
stirling christopher luke
on October 30th, 2014 at 10:05 pm
I like traditional but distinctive names that (to me) sound like intelligent gentlemen. My favorites right now are Alistair Charles and Edmund Walter. Charles and Walter are both family names.
on October 31st, 2014 at 8:40 am
I’d have my two favourite boys names!
Rupert Eric Arthur
on October 31st, 2014 at 8:54 am
Right now if I were to have two sons it would be…
Levi John William & Henry Robert Leonard/Henry Robert Leo
on October 31st, 2014 at 10:20 am
Two boys would be the hardest for me to name, I think.
Callum Booker and Kaius Griffin are what I would say at the moment.
Cal and Kai sound sweet together 🙂
on October 31st, 2014 at 10:39 pm
My sons are Evander and Gabriel. Van’s middle name is his daddy’s first name. Gabe’s mn is my dad’s mn.
The biggest factor in choosing their names was getting my husband to agree. We do not have the same taste at all. Our next son will probably be Sebastian.
on November 1st, 2014 at 3:17 am
If you’d asked me a few years ago if have gone with Alastair and Rory with cool biblical middles like Josiah or Ezra or Boaz
As it is I have one son Daniel Isaac who was named very specially for him and it suits him perfectly. I’m pregnant again and if it’s a boy we are going with Rory with a middle still to be decided – probably Josiah.
on November 1st, 2014 at 9:37 am
Noah Thomas and Milo Sebastian
on November 1st, 2014 at 10:54 am
Some pairs I like…
Malcolm and Corin
Duncan and Sterling
Caspian and Raphael
Caspar and Philip
Walden and Clark
Jericho and Eben
Anders and Leif
Lawrence and Roland
Cormac and Teague
Cavan and Blaise
Lewis and Hugh
on November 1st, 2014 at 2:39 pm
August Leo Wilder
Jasper William Finch
on November 1st, 2014 at 2:43 pm
I’d have to go with
Nicholas Henry & Asher James
on November 1st, 2014 at 3:07 pm
I already have a Malcolm Alexander, and if I had to choose right now without input from my husband I’d probably choose from:
Caspar Frederick, Ansel Sebastian, Desmond Johannes, Ronan Carlyle, Gustav Leopold
Because I like them and they have special meaning to me.
on November 1st, 2014 at 6:41 pm
I would name my boys Ashton Michael and Luke Easton. Ever since I heard of 5 Seconds Of Summer the name Ashton has been one of my favorites. It fits him perfectly. Michael as the middle name because it would be like secretly naming my kids after one of my favorite bands. Luke because I just love the name so much. Easton as the middle name because it just fit so well with Luke. Luke in fact has a double meaning for me. First, it’s a name out of the bible and second, it’s the name of Luke Hemmings, although his name is really Lucas.
on November 2nd, 2014 at 9:09 am
Felix and Jude!
Felix meaning happy/fortunate and Jude meaning praised. Love the linked meanings without the names themselves being too machy. Also love that they are both a bit unusual (well not common) but not too ‘out there’ – as I’ve had issues with people misspelling/pronouncing my name my whole life! So I would like simpler names for my kids.
Unfortunately Hubby not so keen on Felix… So may have to figure out a substitute.
Outlandish-not-going-to-happen great brother names:
Caius, Rufus, Ignatius, Augustus, Magnus.

Owen Matthew and Arthur Grant
Owen holds special meaning to me and a friend, and I love the meaning! Matthew because I love the biblical name and it works well with Owen. I love the image of King Arthur that comes with the name, and Grant because it goes well with Arthur, though that one is subject to change.
