    I'm trying to figure out how to honor my brothers

    To clarify, I'm not currently pregnant.

    I'm trying to figure out how to honor my two brothers without overriding the name choices or opinions of my future SO. Their names are Christopher James and Robert James, but I can't stand James (bad associations for me).

    I have figured out how to do this for a baby girl with the name ORESTINA (Italian) which means "mountain dweller". To get this, I changed Christopher to the closest female variation, Christina, and then took letters from both RObErt and ChriSTINA and changed the letters around to get an actual name (I can't stand made up names or weird spellings).

    I can't figure out how to do this for a baby boy. Any suggestions?

    Thank you in advance.

    I can't figure out how to do it with a boy's name either. Maybe if you take the name meanings, look for names with the same meaning, and come up with something that honors them that way?
    Considering:

    Charlotte Isabella | Evelyn Rose | Esther Charlotte | Esther Rose | Evelyn Charlotte

    Benjamin Joseph | Daniel Joseph | Daniel Thomas | Joshua Thomas

    OK, this one's seriously a stretch, but what about Robin? The Rob- obviously from Robert, and then lengthen it to Robin as in Christopher Robin.
    My Lists

    Texas Inspired Baby Names // paying homage to the Lone Star State
    Nautical Baby Names // inspired by sailors + the deep blue sea

    What about if I use the names CHRISTINA and ROBERT again, pulling letters from the two names like I did with ORESTINA? Would SEBASTIAN be too much of a stretch?

    Herbert is a bit iffy for me. I'm not sure about it, but I do like how the name evenly takes from both brothers' names.

    Corbin and Tristan give me something to think about.

    I like that Jacob and Sebastian takes from their first names as well as the middle name.

    Also just thought of:
    Hero (christopher Robert)
    Reese (Robert Christopher)
    Boris (Robert Christopher -though maybe not if you're in the uk)
    Roscoe (Robert Christopher)
    Rocket (Ro from Robert, Kit sound since Kit is a nickname for Christopher)

    Christopher and Robert share letters “r-o-t-e-r” so I tried to find names that also have these letters:

    Forrest
    Norbert
    Porter
    Torren
    Trevor
    *Norah Josephine 12/16*

    Margot Cecilia | Louisa Rosalind | Eliza Florence | Violet Evangeline

    Considering: Vivian Rose | Lucia Violet | Isla Margaret

    Everett August | Parker Thomas | Elliot James | Rhys David

    @namefan Thank you for doing that. Can someone explain why posts keep ending up in the spam filter. This isn't the first one and I've only written a few posts. When I wrote the original to this, about half of my posts had gone into the spam file.
