Help me whittle down my sibling list for Felix?
I'm one of those crazy forward planners, but even now I think I've gone overboard - I have 10 names that I LOVE for siblings for my Felix David Bernard, and I'm driving myself mad with the thought that I'll never be able to use them all
Frederic (known as Fred)
Elenore (known as Elsie)
Lucille (known as Lucy)
Esmeralda (known as Melle, or Esme or Essie)
Which should I keep on my list and which do you think don't work?

I love Felix and Hector, such a handsome sib set! I also like Felix and Jeremy, and Felix and Hugo from your lists, although Hector is definitely my favourite. Felix and Frederic seems a little hard to say for me personally, and Felix and Theodore just doesn't mesh that well in my brain.
For the girls I like Felix and Elenore (Elsie), and Felix and Clara. I don't think Esmerelda works because it is so long, and Felix is quite short. Although you would get around that with the nicknames, it's not my favourite combination. Felix and Lucille, and Felix and Aurelia just don't sound right to me, but that's my preference. Felix and Clara would be my favourite from the girls.
I hope this is helpful.Name loving BritBerry

Felix David Bernard and...
Hector - this works, I like the nn Hec(k), it does feel a little serious next to the playful Felix
Jeremy - not a huge fan of this name and it feels very dated imo
Frederic (known as Fred) - I would drop this because of repeating first initials
Hugo - LOVE Hugo and I love it with Felix! Both of them are in my top ten as well.
Theodore - this could work, if you keep Hugo you'll lose the nn Theo, I like Teddy as a nn too
Aurelia - love this, it could be difficult for some people to pronounce
Elenore (known as Elsie) - I like both names and they would work
Clara - this is lovely, simple and elegant
Lucille (known as Lucy) - totally works with Felix
Esmeralda (known as Melle, or Esme or Essie) - this is OK, I think you have better optionsBen & Lainy 10.8.12 | TTC since 2014Natural BFP May 2015 >> MC July 2015

My favorites with Felix for boys are 1. Hugo; 2. Hector; 3. Theodore with the nn Theo.
Fred is just too bland next to Felix, imo. Plus I like different initials. Jeremy is ok, if you love it. The nn Remy could be cute with Felix. Ive never thought of Jeremy nn Remy before....I like it!
For girls, I keep changing my mind. I love Aurelia. At first I thought Clara was too plain/simple next to Felix, but suddenly I'm loving the way Felix and Clara sounds. Those are my top two.Calla Frances | Eliza Wren | Esme Clover | Liv Cordelia | Maisie Elowen | Matilda Hazel | Phoebe Kerensa | Sylvie Marigold | Thea Rosemary | Zara Emmeline
