    Which fits our all boy sibset?

    I would love a few opinions on these names, they are all saint or family names with special meanings.

    Benjamin
    Leo
    Finnian
    Basil
    Barnabas
    Valeria / Valerian
    Ivan

    Any suggestions would be great! TY!

    Our girl name the next go around is probably Marigold.

    Alden Lewis . Forrest Ephraim . River Jude . Benjamin Adler . Linden

    Benjamin - this is a nice classic that isn't too overused. Nicknames Ben and Benji are also appealing. One of my favorites on your list.

    Leo - this name is okay. Succinct, but could stand on its own. Not my personal favorite, but a fine name.

    Finnian - another favorite! Benjamin Finnian flows in my mind, perhaps a little -n heavy, but I think it sounds handsome. Finnian could also work as a first name with the potential for cute nickname Finn. This is my favorite from your list.

    Basil - I can't get past the herb association personally. I could see it working on a pet, but not so much a boy.

    Barnabas - this is a lot of name and a little dated. Potential nickname Barny doesn't make it better imo.

    Valerian - I like the sound of this. Maybe as a middle? As a first, it is a tad unusual. If that's your style though, it works perfectly.

    Ivan - Ivan is nice and also not too terribly common, which is a plus. Sounds strong, yet modern. Ivan Valerian is possibility, too.

    So Benjamin, Ivan, and Finnian are the top contenders to me. The rest could work as middles, though. You definitely have a unique style! Best of luck

    My favorites with your boys names are Leo and Finnian (probably my top choice). I would like Barnaby though!

    Benjamim - nice enough, but quite popular and familiar compared to your boys


    Leo - sweet and lively!

    Finnian -brilliant - familiar but unique and fits with your boys

    Basil - vintage a little clunky but sweet.

    Barnabas -i prefer Barnaby and feel like that matches your boys but Barnabas is great too. I like the flow

    Valeria*/*Valerian - intersting -ive never come across it before but i quite like Valerian. Mabye more for a middle, but i need to think about it!

    Ivan -love this! Feels rugged and cool


    Jared, Alfred, Alby Cecil, Hugo, Leon, Linus, Thaddeus, Connolly, Fergus, Vincent, Cillian, Julien and Dashiell came to mind

    I love Leo, and I like that it doesn’t end with an “n” since two of your three already do. It gives the sibset some good balance.

    I'm really into Basil and Valerian. Runner ups would be Finnian and Barnabas.

    Basil has a "Earthy, wild" vibe that I get from your sibset. I think it fits really well, and is a super handsome name that ages well.

    Hi there.

    Here are my thoughts:

    Benjamin-This is a great name, but it's not super special. Very solid & handsome; just a bit over done.

    Leo-This is cool. Kind, smart & spunky.

    Finnian-Ooh, I like it! It's one of my favorite 'Finn' names, & I just adore Finn & Finney. So boyish yet gentle.

    Basil-This is really cool. It's unique & a little artsy. You could also do the nn Bash, which is fun.

    Barnabas-This is nice. I love Barnaby. It's kind of the adorable version, but Barnabas is really strong & handsome. Kind of a big name to give a baby, but the nns Barnes or Barney are really cute.

    Valeria / Valerian-I don't care for this one. Valeria sounds feminine, & Valerian just sounds like a Sci-fi term.

    Ivan-I like this. It's unique, strong, & handsome. It's not overly butch, but just the right amount of manly. A little artsy too.

    Oh, also Marigold is beautiful.

    Hope this helps.

    My favorite with bros would be Finnian but my favorites in general are Barnabas and Basil. Wdyt of Barnaby? I think Shepherd would fit well with your set, too.

    Thank you so much for your opinions berries! You have been really helpful.

    I wasnt sure how well Finnian would go over but I love that its well received here, i could see boy girl twin set Marigold and Finnian going beautifully together too.
