Thread: #2 Already!

  1. #1

    #2 Already!

    Much to my surprise (and delight and concern haha), we're expecting #2 already. So to relieve some of the stress, of course, I'm thinking about names!

    Our daughter is Hermione Elowen "Hero, Mione". We love unusual, historical, literary, fantastical, and saintly names. I'd like to avoid repeated initials, so no D, K, or H monikers.

    What boy and girl names would you suggest?

    For reference, our joint top contender for a boy is Evander "Ender, Van", though my favorite is Caspian "Cap". Beatrix is currently my favorite for a girl "Trixie, Bea". We adore nicknames and use a plethora of them in addition to our daughter's given name.

    Thanks!

    Persephone "Posy, Effie" or Seraphine "Seffie, Phina" would be perfect for a girl. For a boy, what about Oleander "Leo" , Thaddeus "Theo", Casimir "Cas" or Sebastian "Seb"?
