    Brother or Sister for Mattie

    I love the name Martha Juniper and calling her Mattie. I am struggling fining other names that would match or go well with Mattie.

    To get a sense of my style-

    Girls:
    Clementine
    Elizabeth w/ nicknames (Betsy, Libby, Eliza or Libby)
    Sarah or Sadie
    Margot
    Olive
    Ella
    Caroline, but I like nicknames and doesn’t seem to have any I like
    June
    Beatrice
    Adele
    Josephine
    Claire

    Boys:
    August
    Declan
    Theodore
    Julian
    Charles nn Charlie
    Leander nn Lee or Zander
    Jacob
    Oliver
    Elias
    Samuel/Samson
    Jacob
    Abel
    Raleigh




    *FYI I am not currently pregnant or have a child named Mattie. I am just a name nerd coming up with combinations of name for future use!

    I could see a Martha having a sister named Alice, nickname Lissie. If you like Martha Juniper maybe you'd like Alice Marigold?

    Other sister names I think could work:
    Louise
    Daisy
    Eleanor
    Pearl


    My top 3 favorite sister names paired with Martha from your own list are
    Beatrice
    Olive
    Caroline

    For boys, I could see a Martha and...

    Henry
    Caleb
    Nathaniel
    Atticus
    Gabriel
    Callum
    Felix
    Gideon
    Tobias
    Phillip

    From your own list my top 3 favorites with Martha are
    Julian
    Samson
    Jacob


    Hope this helped!

    Hi there.

    Even though Martha or Mattie are not really my style, I do find Martha Juniper nn Mattie pretty adorable!

    Here are my thoughts on your current lists:

    Girls:

    Clementine Love it! I think just Clementine works, but also the nn Cleo is cute. Clementine nn Minnie is nice too, but Minnie & Mattie may be too cheesy.

    Elizabeth w/ nicknames (Betsy, Libby, Eliza or Libby)-I love Eliza. I think that Betsy works best w/Mattie though. Tess would also be good.

    Sarah or Sadie -Sarah nn Sadie is perfect w/Martha nn Mattie. Also Susanna nn Sadie (or Sally).

    Margot -Nice, but obviously too close to Martha.

    Olive-I *love* the nn Livy.

    Ella-Pretty, but a different style from Martha in my opinion. It also seems nick-namey to me.

    Caroline-I like it okay too, but agree that Carrie is kind of meh.

    June-Ooh, Junie & Mattie are perfect!

    Beatrice-So sweet. Mattie & Bea/Bess/Bette...or you could even do Betsy here.

    Adele-This is fine. It doesn't sparkle, & Mattie & Addie rhyme.

    Josephine-I love it. What do you think of the nn Posy?

    Claire-This is fine, but not super exciting.

    Girl suggestions:

    Beatrix/Trixie

    Coraline/Cora

    Cornelia/Nellie

    Dorothy/Daisy

    Eloise/Lulu

    Eleanor/Nellie

    Frances/Francie/Franny

    Georgia/Georgie

    Georgina/Georgie

    Kathleen/Kit/Kitty

    Lucille/Lucy/Lulu

    Phoebe

    Penelope/Penny/Polly/Nellie...I really like Mattie & Polly.

    Virginia/Ginny

    Wilhelmina/Willa/Winnie

    Boys:

    August-So handsome. Just the right amount of gentle manliness. Gus or Augie are adorable nns too. Or Ace.

    Declan-I love this one too. It wouldn't be my first pick w/Martha, but a nice name none the less.

    Theodore -Cute, but getting so popular. Lots of great nn options.

    Julian-Love it! Not my first pick w/Mattie, but it is on my top three list.

    Charles nn Charlie-This is nice. I love Charlie.

    Leander nn Lee or Zander -This is not my style, but okay.

    Jacob-Great name, but way popular.

    Oliver-Same as above, really.

    Elias-This is handsome. Eli is quite popular, but this is my favorite Eli name.

    Samuel/Samson-I love Samuel. Samson is good too, & less common. Mattie & Sam work.

    Abel -Very cool & different.

    Raleigh -Seems a little out of left field. Maybe nice for a mn.

    Boy suggestions:

    Alistiar/Ace/Alfie

    Alfred/Ace/Alfie/Freddie

    Asa/Ace

    Bernard/Bernie/Ben/Benny

    Barnaby/Barney/Barnes

    Beckett/Kit

    Edward/Teddy/Ned

    Elliott

    George/Georgie

    Hugo

    Hugh/Hughie

    Harrison/Harry/Hank

    Knox

    Louis/Louie

    Oscar

    Otis

    Owen

    Peter/Pip

    Rafferty/Rafe

    Thomas/Tucker

    William/Billy

    Hope this helps.
