    A brother to Atticus & Holden

    Hi nameberries! My two sons are named Atticus Daniel & Holden Murphy. My husband and I are both english teachers so we like literary names but it isn't necessary. The middle name is going to be Dean or Harvey, which are family names. Thanks a bunch!

    Thanks greyblue!
    I really like Dorian Harvey, do you think we can get away with the nickname Dory or is that too 'Finding Nemo'?

    How about Bastian (after Bastian from The Neverending Story), Marlowe (Heart of Darkness; Christopher Marlowe) or Jude (Jude the Obscure)? Or Wilder (Thornton Wilder) or Caspian (Narnia series)?

    Hi there.

    Atticus & Holden are lovely! I know two names that I love from high school literature are Phineas/Finney & Zachary/Zooey.

    Other ideas:

    Arlo

    Basil

    Beckett

    Edgar

    Eben

    Jem...I don't personally care for Jeremy, but it works. I like Jerome nn Jem, which is J.D. Salinger's name, so that works! Also James or Jameson nn Jem are nice. Or maybe Jeremiah?

    James/Jameson nn Jass

    Keats

    Knox

    Levi

    Lane

    Milo

    Nathan/Nate

    Nathaniel/Nate

    Owen

    Oscar

    Oliver

    Otis

    Peter

    Percival as in Lord of the Flies

    Pip as in Great Expectations. Could be a nn for Philip, but you could also do Peter nn Pip. Or Percival really.

    Rafe

    Rhett

    Silas

    Simon

    Shaw

    Theodore/Teddy/Theo/Thatch/Thax

    Thatcher/Thatch/Thax

    Tristan

    Wilder

    Wyatt

    Westley as in the Dread Pirate Roberts!

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks tdfm and michellem!
    I like Wilder a lot but our last name ends with -er too so it doesn't work that well. I like Phineas/Finny and Zachary/Zooey a lot too!

    Thanks lauren.ley!
    I love Sawyer but it just doesn't work that well with our last name because they both end in -er.
