    Lightbulb A Sibling for Desmond & Talullah

    After a miscarriage this spring, we are pregnant again. We won't know the gender for a while yet, but we are already feeling a bit stuck with names.

    We used many of our favorites with our son and daughter already. We have an Irish last name, and I'm an Irish dual citizen; so, we've tried to stick with Irish names (although we're not opposed to other names that fit in well).

    To make matters even more complicated, our son was adopted from South Korea; so, each child also has a Korean name for a second middle name using the Korean sibling naming style where the siblings share a Hangul character in their names.

    Soooooo, our son is Desmond Colm TaekYeon; and our daughter is Talullah Maeve MiYeon.

    They go by Desi and Lulu/Lullah most of the time.

    Our faves so far are Riordan and Cormac for a boy and Saoirse for a girl.

    That's it. ☹️☹️☹️ *crickets*

    I know you all are full of good ideas, so I am looking forward to any suggestions you all might have. 😁

    TIA!

    Hi there.

    I don't think I could love your kids' names more. :grin: I never see Colm! That's my favorite name ever, which I will never actually use, because Dh hates it & it will never get pronounced right in the midwest U.S. Anyway, I digress.

    Riordan, Cormac & Saoirse all seem like lovely fits. I feel like Riordan is sort of hard to say, but maybe that's just me. None of these names really have too many nn options if that bothers you at all since your current kids go by nick-names.

    Here are a few suggestions:

    Boys-

    Alistair

    Angus/Gus

    Alfred/Alfie/Freddie

    Albert

    Brennan

    Cillian

    Ciaran

    Conall

    Ewan-my second favorite name ever.

    Eamon

    Ellis

    Esben

    Finnian/Finn/Finney

    Finnegan/Finn/Finney

    Fergus/Gus

    Gareth

    Gordon/Gordy

    Gwilym

    Galen

    Hamish

    Hugo/Hughie

    Jameson/Jem

    Julian/Jude

    Keats

    Lachlan

    Leith

    Laurence/Lad

    Malcolm

    Magnus/Gus

    Malachy-this is my nephew's name (his brothers are Li@m, Se@mus, Cilli@n, & E@mon. Don't tell their parents that I'm suggesting his super unique name!)
