    Drawing a blank on boys

    So my girls names style is easy to pin down, dramatic names that feel magical with short spunky unisex nick names. It is important to me that any future sibsets match stylistically, but I am having a hard time finding what I am looking for with boys names.

    My thoughts on my boys list now:
    I really like nn Pip but is Phillip too normal next to my girls list?
    I like Caspian nn Kip but is it too close to Cordelia nn Cody? (which is my top girls name)
    I'm probably going to scrap the rest of the boys names as they just don't make sense with my girls names


    I'm looking for:
    Grand and magical sounding names with spunky nicknames, and it's really important to me the nns to be something off the beaten path so not like Rodrick nn Rick and more like Mordecai nn Kai

    Really looking forward to your feedback and any ideas you might have

    Hi there.

    I love Pip! Pip can be a nn to tons of 'P' names. Like Philipe, Percival, Peregrine or Peter. Or Pepito or Pierto if you're into those.

    Caspian nn Kip seems just fine w/Cordelia nn Cody. It's not too matchy; they seem to go well.

    Other suggestions:

    Alexander nn Dex

    Aurelius nn Ace...Heck, you can do any 'A' name nn Ace.

    Bastian nn Bash

    Charles nn Cal/Chase/Chance/Cab/Chet

    Gabriel nn Gib/Gibby

    Luciano nn Luc/Leo

    Nicolas nn Nils

    Nataniel nn Nils

    Peter nn Patch

    Peregrine nn Penn

    Sebastian nn Satch/Bash

    Thaddeus nn Thax

    Theodore nn Thax or Thatch

    Thomas nn Tuck(er)

    Zachary nn Zeke

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you!

    I love Percival nn Pip, Sebastian nn Bash, and Thaddeus nn Thax

    Unfourtunatly I can't use Zachary or Zeke but that is a cool idea!

    I am glad to hear you think Caspian and Cordelia can be siblings.

    I just thought of Roland nn Ro, thoughts?

    Caspian & Cordelia / Kip & Cody is a great sibling set I think!

    Roland on the other hand I'm not a fan of, it's a 50-something stuffy old dude's name in my ears haha. Phillip is ok but too boring with Cornelia. For the nickname Pip I would definitely go with something a bit more unusual like Peregrine, Phineas or the likes.

    I'd also like:

    Cordelia & Leander "Ean"
    Cordelia & Atticus "Kit"
    Cordelia & Leopold "Poe"
    Cordelia & August "Ace"
    Cordelia & Ferdinand "Fred"
    Cordelia & Emilio "Bo"
    Cordelia & Constantin "Kit"
    Atlas Theodore - Levi Atticus - Remus Leander - Ezra August

    Marlow Valentine - Scout Eloise - Maeva Lior - Sapphra Lyric - Alma Liv

    Aloysius nn Wish is a really interesting idea but just a little too brave for me.

    Thank you for all the help so far! I am finally liking my boys list again, any other suggestions you have that are similar to the ones in my sig would be great.
