    Sibling for Malcolm

    Hi All,

    TTC baby number 2 and the more I look at these names, the less I like them. Thoughts? Any suggestions for additions?

    We have one son named Malcolm. His middle name is the first name of a famous jazz musician with the last name Monk.

    Last name is 4 syllables and Italian. It’s constantly mispronounced so a more intuitively pronounced first name is desired.

    Husband wants a “jazzy” sounding name... I’m still not 100% on what he means by that. Boy’s middle will probably be Fitzgerald after Ella. Girl’s will be Musetta, an honor name of sorts.

    Boys
    Roger
    Frederick
    Jude
    Desmond
    Felix
    Linus
    Robin
    Theodore
    Arthur
    Charles
    Asa

    Girls
    Simone (his number one and looking like the likely pick)
    June
    Colette
    Sabine
    Phoebe
    Eleanor

    I have a trendy name myself so I love how Malcolm isn’t tied down to any one generation.

    Thanks so much!

    Of your list, i really like:
    Frederick -funky but vintage
    Jude - lively with something grounded about it
    Desmond - feels jazzy and cool
    Felix -cheery, bright but classic
    Linus - distinctive and cool

    Robin and Charles fit with Malcolm too

    I'd suggest Donnovan, Sebastian, Winston, Otis, Douglas, Curtis, Benjamin


    Of your girls, i like
    Collette -musical and sweet
    Sabine -light and unexpected
    Phoebe -sweet and bubbly
    Eleanor - classic, grounded but full of energy.

    Simone works too

    I'd suggest Daisy, Celia, Vivienne, Nadine, Alice, Sylvia, Mavis, Georgia
    Grace
    Sarai Matilda|Cherith Eliza|Sholto Felix|Tristan Rafferty
    Una Adele|Mabli Charlotte|Percy Evander|Otto Elias
    Cleo Tallulah|Lois Aurelia|Jesse Peregrine|Bram Atticus
    Maeve Emily|Sloane Felicity|Linus Theodore|Jude Amadeus

    Hi there.

    Malcolm is a great name! Here are my thoughts on the lists:

    Boys-

    Roger-This is different, & it goes nicely w/Malcolm. It's not my personal favorite though; not sure why.

    Frederick-This is handsome, & perfect w/Malcom too. Do you like Fred/Freddie? They may be hard to avoid completely.

    Jude-I love this one. So simple, handsome, & down to Earth sounding.

    Desmond-This is perfect. Exactly what I'd suggest as a brother for Malcolm.

    Felix-This is okay, but I feel like I hear it a lot. It's getting kind of hipster trendy.

    Linus-So cute! Kind of geeky, but in a witty way. Well known yet unique just like Malcolm.

    Robin-This is not my favorite, but it's okay. It's kind of too masculine for a girl & too feminine for a boy.

    Theodore-Love it, but getting common if that bothers you.

    Arthur-Hm. Same as above.

    Charles-This is a nice classic. I love the nn Charlie, although do meet a lot of them. The nns Cal, Cab or Chet are a little more interesting.

    Asa-Love this! It's smart & masculine, yet very gentle sounding as well. Not common either, but not overly complicated either.

    Boys suggestions:

    Alistair

    Adrian

    August

    Abel

    Barnaby

    Crispin

    Sullivan

    Simon

    Girls
    Simone (his number one and looking like the likely pick)-This is nice. Classy, simple, fairly uncommon & goes very well w/Malcolm.

    June-Very sweet. Simple & elegant, & the nn Junie is adorable.

    Colette-Ooh, very pretty.

    Sabine-This is good. You may have pronunciation issues.

    Phoebe-Sweet. Old fashioned charm, yet still sounds modern & spunky.

    Eleanor-I love it! It's on the top of my list, but it is sort of popular if that bothers you.

    Girl suggestions:

    Anais

    Adele

    Adela

    Beatrice

    I LOVE Roger Fitzgerald, that's a 'jazzy' name if I've ever heard one! Roger and Malcolm sound so sweet together together too! He could also use Jer as a nn which is cute. Charles Fitzgerald is also very handsome, it'd be my runner up.

    As for girls, I'm with your hubby on Simone. Simone Musetta is gorgeous and I love the flow! Simone and Malcolm sound so natural and almost lyrical together too, a perfect pairing! June would be my runner up, but it doesn't 'pop' as much as Simone does.
