    Congratulations on boy number two. I absolutely adore Cedar (and Sequoia and Juniper!), so I’m excited to see what you come up with next! I have heard Sequoia as a boy name, if you would like to consider that I think it’s completely doable.
    You’ve had some fantastic suggestions and thoughts here. I love the nature name theme. Maybe...

    Cedar & Boreal (keeping the tree theme going)

    Cedar & Sage (plant based)

    Cedar & Willoughby (also tree related, means “willow town”)

    Cedar & Koa (the Acacia Koa is a tree native to Hawaii, I believe. Keeps the tree theme, but more subtle then say Pine or Oak)

    I love the theme of using tree names, and while I don’t think you should let anyone make you feel bad about it, I do feel Cedar and Sequoia are a bit too on the nose. What about a name that ha a tree associated meaning? Here’s some options I found that I feel work well with Cedar and also are wonderful on their own.
    Alder
    Arbor
    Cullen- holly tree
    Hollis- dweller at the holly trees
    Nash- by the ash tree
    Oren- laurel or pine tree
    Stockard- tree stump

    I think that Cedar and Stockard might be my favorite. The name Stockard is just very appealing to me. It’s very unique, but familiar and usable. Much like Cedar.

    Runners up:
    Cedar and Cullen
    Cedar and Hollis
    Cedar and Nash

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you everyone once again for your very thoughtful comments. Will update once we decide! Still debating but currently considering Cove, Finn, Hawthorne...but nothing is standing out as a perfect name. Your comments help so much and will be reviewing them with my husband

    I absolutely adore nature names, and I love the idea of a tree theme - even more so because of the special meaning to your family! I also live in the PNW, and if you're anywhere near Portland, I can assure you that people will have heard far weirder names than Cedar, Sequoia, and Juniper.

    Cove is one of my dark horse favorites. I love the cool consonant and open vowel followed by the velvety soft V. It's such a peaceful name.

    I'm less keen on Finn, especially when paired with Cedar, which is far more unusual.

    I love Hawthorne as a brother for Cedar! There's the tree connection, but Hawthorne also has gentle literary vibes with the -e on the end.

    Some more suggestions:

    Cedar and Rowan
    Cedar and Forest
    Cedar and Briar
    Cedar and Sylvan
    Cedar and Alder
    Cedar and Sycamore
