Science Fiction Baby Names

a Name Sage post by: Abby View all Name Sage posts

Their love of science fiction and fantasy literature has inspired two great names. Let’s help them choose something with just as much magic for their third child!

Claire and Kyle write:

We’re expecting our third baby and having a great deal of difficulty picking a name.

We have a literary theme going with our kids: Ender Grey and Lyra Yvaine. We hope to continue the tradition by also naming this one after strong literary figures from science fiction and fantasy.  It’s no secret that we prefer unusual names, and we also want everyone in the family to have a unique first initial.

Our surname is unusual, and starts with an S, so names that end with an ‘s’ or ‘x’ sound don’t work.

Names we’ve considered include: Doyle (family name) Xavier, nickname Dex, but my husband doesn’t like Doyle or Xavier on their own. I love Arietta/Arrietty, but he only likes the nickname Ari. Names I like but he does not: Odette, Maeve, Rue, Taran, Thorin, Gawain. Names he likes, but I’m not on board: Ione, Ryker.

Are there any names that you or the nameberry community can think of that might fit the bill?
