    My Naming Dilemma (warning: wall of text)

    Now that FI and I are TTC my mild guilty-pleasure interest in names has gone into Name ALL the Future Babies! overdrive. I like having things lined up so I don't have to fret about them. Ideally, I want names chosen for two of each gender...they don't necessarily have to "match" but I like staying with the same feel.

    For a long time, I had my heart set on Ian Gibson as a boy. Gibson is a family name and I really, really want to keep it. FI and I would like to do some science honoring in the naming process, however, and this is causing an issue. Now I have my heart set on Nova Linnea for a girl. It's perfect in every way for us as a couple as well as hitting every style point that I care about. Which leads me to the boy problem, and the only way I can see to circumvent it and keep Gibson is to use 3 names.

    Girl: Nova Linnea ______ (Lastname)
    Boy: Theon ______ Gibson (Lastname)

    I'm leaning towards Theon and I'm pretty sure that I can get FI on board with it, but I guess it's negotiable (after Theon of Alexandria. Linnea is after Carolus Linneaus). Whatever goes in the girl blank should fit with Gibson and whatever goes with the boy blank should sit with Linnea. I'm totally stumped.

    Anyone want to try their hand at filling in the blanks?

    I think of something modern, short and spunky for girl would be the best... and for boy something unusual and short.

    Nova Linnea June and Theon Kay Gibson
    Nova Linnea Sylvie and Theon Eli Gibson
    Nova Linnea Grace and Theon Luca Gibson
    Nova Linnea Fern and Theon Jon Gibson
    Nova Linnea Anne and Theon Ned Gibson

    Okay, what does FI mean? I haven't seen that acronym before.

    Are there any other family names you like that could work for Nova's second middle name? Perhaps a family surname? I really like that previous suggestion of Theon Elliot Gibson.

    Theon Axel Gibson
    Theon Abram Gibson
    Theon Valentin Gibson
    Theon Jasper Gibson
    Theon Evander Gibson
    Theon Ezra Gibson
    Theon Horatio Gibson
    Theon Leander Gibson
    Theon Benedict Gibson
    Theon Pascal Gibson
    Theon Roscoe Gibson
    Theon Everett Gibson
    Theon Anatole Gibson
    Theon Matthias Gibson
    Theon Erasmus Gibson
    Theon Tobias Gibson

    I feel like I'm really off base here...
