    Arlo's little sister...

    Hi there, would love some impartial name advice/opinions on our short list for our baby girl arriving in a few weeks. She has an older brother Arlo Aristos and we have a longish Italian surname. We also would like to use either Athena or Patricia as a middle name to honor my mum.

    Options are:

    Pearl patricia
    Pearl Athena
    Eleni patricia
    Athena pearl
    Iris Athena

    Have spent too much time thinking on it and can't decide on what sounds best, and compliments Arlo as well. Would love some advice??

    I think Eleni is a beautiful name! I prefer Patricia to Athena.

    I like Athena Pearl, but I think my favorite is Iris Athena. Iris & Athena are beautiful together. I always advise against Eleni. My name is Eleni and the pronunciations are a pain in the butt. I've always had problems with it. I get called everything under the sun, it isn't one of those names that you tell the person the correct pronunciation and that's it, they continually mispronounce it, as they won't be able to remember the correct pronunciation. I'd avoid it, even though it is really pretty.

    I adore: Iris Athena.

    Personally, I don't like it when siblings share first name Initial, as a first name that rules out: Athena.

    I also feel like siblings match or "belong together" more when the share syllable count.

    Arlo: 2

    Athena: 3
    Eleni: 3
    Pearl: 1

    Iris: 2.

    Aristos + Athena have an equal syllable count. (3) Iris + Arlo the same amount of letters. (4)

    Iris Athena sounds gorgeous. As a nickname, I would use Rissa or Rissy or Isa.

    I'd do Eleni Athena or Iris Athena Both are lovely and go brilliantly with Arlo. Lovely sibset.
