    August, Oona, and.... Maple?

    Hi! I have two kids August Alexander (boy) and Oona River Ann (girl) and we are trying for our third baby currently. Not pregnant yet but hoping for soon!

    Our boy pick for baby #3 is

    Sky Wulfric Marlin

    Sky cause we like it. Wulfric is a Harry Potter name. And Marlin is a family name.

    But we’re having so much trouble agreeing on a girl name we both like.

    Juno
    Maple
    Evening
    Zelda
    Lotus
    These are all names we’ve talked about but aren’t set on.
    Our ‘current’ girl name is

    Maple Clara Wildrose
    And it’s almost completely still up in the air.

    My question is:
    Do any of those names “go” with my other kids names or do they all stick out as the weird one? Opinions on our boy name? Suggestions for other names that go with my style? Opinions on the name Maple? My husband says it sounds like a stripper name and comments on Nameberry aren’t positive.

    Thanks in advance!

    Maple is not my favourite name in the world. However, I do like it, even with the association it does sound like a really fresh nature name.

    I think August, Oona and Maple do go together. Ones that stick out to me are Evening and Zelda. But that's only because of their sounds. Evening and Oona have the same long drawn out syllable at the beginning of the names. Zelda ends in A like Oona and I don't like the repetition of sounds. This sort of happens with Oona and Juno both having the "ou" sound. But thats just a personal thing/what sticks out to me. Obviously (or maybe not obviously) these links are what you find appealing in a name.

    I quite like Maple, and Maple Clara Wildrose is STUNNING. Other names I would suggest that are similar but not the same sounds are:

    Juniper
    Zadie
    Delphine

    ALSO, as for the stripper name association, I DO NOT have that at all lol. I actually know a young teen named Maple that I have worked with before. She is sweet and shy and quite timid. I would also say she dresses rather conservatively, although it was office work, however she still dressed like teen with dress clothes and often sneakers. So when I think of a Maple, I think of her.
    Astrid. Beatrix. Gemma. Flora. Freya. Ivy. Margot. Matilda. Maxine. Ramona. Thora.

    August. Arlo. Bram. Brooks. Darcy. Everett. Ezra. Kit. Maxwell. Silas. Sumner.

    I think they all work except for Evening! Most of the others are unusual but on-trend, just like big sister Oona.

    Opinions on our boy name?
    I love that you're using both a name from a series you love, and a family name. However, I think Wulfric and Marlin are too much together, especially compared to his siblings' much more "normal" middle names. Sky isn't my style, I find it dated to the 2000's and more of a girl name, but we all have different tastes and that's great!

    Opinions on the name Maple?
    Maple is actually my favorite name from your list, followed up by Zelda! It's so cute and sweet, but usable because of Mae and Mabel gaining popularity and the nature names trend. There's actually a poem by Robert Frost about a girl named Maple, which just makes me love the name more.

    Suggestions for other names that go with my style?
    Your style is quite interesting and I think a mix of styles, so sorry if some of these are completely off! Tell me if you like any.

    Hi there.

    I think that Maple is a nice fit w/August & Oona. It's not too out there. I kind of like Mabel more, but Maple is a little spunkier. It's not a stripper name! I think Maple is more of a carefree, easy going sweet yoga instructor. Maple Clara Wildrose is beautiful.

    Other suggestions:

    Azalea

    Anais

    Briar

    Dahlia

    Elowen

    Eowyn

    Esme

    Indigo nn Idgie

    Juniper nn Juno

    Lyra

    Malin

    Magnolia

    Tallula nn Tula/Lula/Lulu

    Trixibelle nn Trixie-too much?

    Zella-I think that this is sweeter than Zella. Less harsh.

    As for your boy name, I think that Sky is pretty cool. I'd probably opt fo Schuyler nn Sky; that way he'd have a slightly more masculine full name.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks! I agree with a lot of names being similar sounds. Juno would have been THE name of it wasn’t so similar to Oona. The natural nn for Juno is June or Junie/Juni and we already have Oon/Ooni (what we call her at home). And To call her June would be the second month name in our family.
