    Question We have a girl named Daisy Gray now a boy is coming What to name her brother?

    Hi, my 22-month old granddaughter lives on Nantucket Island otherwise known as The Gray Lady.
    It’s an old whaling port, a small island, very quaint, with cobblestones, gray houses, fog, sandy beaches -
    Since she was born on the island, her parents chose the middle name Gray as a nod to the island, and her first name is a nature name - my daughter always wanted to name her girls flower names since she was a little girl.
    But now, she’ll be joined by a brother in December, right at the start of this year’s “Christmas Stroll” weekend.
    What kind of name for a boy can be as cool as Daisy Gray?
    Interested in nature, birds, surf or sandy beach names, unusual (Wolfe was a consideration, also Marley. The island has Bob Marley roots) I thought of Ray, for “Ray if Sunshine” and after my father but thumbs down I got.
    What do you think of Marley Shore - I’m getting used to it now.
    It’s an old Quaker town, Nantucket.
    A whaling town.
    I went to the whaling museum specifically to hunt up some old names but there really weren’t any.
    Certainly don’t want River or Laje though I like those names. They’re aren’t rivers or lakes here, only oceans and bogs. Swamps.
    Lots of seagulls and osprey...
    Oh, BOY!

    Marley Shore is brilliant! I like it with Daisy Gray!

    Marley Ocean or Marley Cove?

    Jonah Wolfe? Jonah Opsrey? (As in Jonah and the whale?)

    Noel Ocean? Noel Sandy?

    Some other ideas:

    Skip (Bob Marley's grandson and linked to skipper, as in sea captains)

    Jethro (Jethro Coffin House -landmark in Nantucket island)

    Brant (Brant Point lighthouse)

    Harbor

    Tucker

    Fin (associated with whales/the sea etc)
    Grace
    Sarai Matilda|Cherith Eliza|Sholto Felix|Tristan Rafferty
