A sib for Ella Jane!
Would love help coming up with sibling name options! My daughter's name is Ella Jane (both are family names). We live in the South and use the double name most of the time. Our last name is Parker.
We tend to like names that are both classic and also jaunty - or else with a fun nickname. We enjoy names that can sound playful on children, but also grow up well (for example, our daughter can drop the double form and go by either "Ella" or the more serious "Jane" when she is an adult.)
For a girl, we like Margaret (Maggie) but would love more options. Also worried Margaret Parker has too many R's. For a boy, my husband likes Charles (Charlie) - but given jazz great Charlie Parker - I wonder if that's a bad idea? Again, would love more options!
Thanks so much!!
Here are some sister combos for Ella Jane's sibling.
If Margaret has to many r's, how about Margo/t?
I love Margo! Also second Jack and Henry.
The first name that came to mind was Olivia. Ella and Olivia? or Ella and Laurel? Ella and Natalie? As for a boy, I agree with the posts above, especially Henry!
Mary Margaret (could still go by Maggie)
Herman (Henry) Glenn
Thomas (Tommy) John
I don't think there are too many Rs in Margaret Parker. If you count, 4 seems like a lot...but I really think it rolls off the tongue well, and I probably wouldn't have noticed an excess of Rs if you didn't point it out.
Thank you all! We just found out the baby will be a boy!
So I'll be adding Jack, Henry, and Thomas/Tom to our short list, along with the original Charles/Charlie! :)
Happy to hear more suggestions if you have them! Thanks again!
