    Talking sibling for Sam, Deacon, Vera and Shep

    Hi! We need help with name ideas for baby #5, especially boy names. Our kids are are:
    Samuel Robert
    Deacon Thomas
    Vera Lucille
    Shepherd Miles

    Our current top girl choices are Harriet (Hattie) Anne, Ada Dorothy, or Annette (Etta) mn? For boys, we literally have no ideas on first names, but possible family names to incorporate as a middle include: William, James, Wilder, or Malcolm.

    Please help! Any ideas welcome!

    Hi there.

    Your kids' names are lovely!

    Here are my thoughts:

    Girls-

    Samuel Robert
    Deacon Thomas
    Vera Lucille
    Shepherd Miles

    Harriet (Hattie) Anne-This could not be more perfect.

    Ada Dorothy-I like both of these names, but don't love the repeating 'd' sound. It's still perfectly nice though. I think that Ada works very well w/your crew, but it may be a little more popular than you realize if that bothers you.

    Annette (Etta)-This is my grandma's name! She just goes by Annette. I like Etta, & it works well w/your kids' names. I don't know that it totally makes sense as a nn for Annette, but I think it works? The only other name I can think of is Loretta, which isn't that pretty in my opinion. As for a mn, maybe-

    Annette Dorothy

    Annette Dorothea

    Annette Louise

    Annette Louisa

    Annette Rosalie

    Annette Theodora

    These are GREAT suggestions, thanks so much!! I'm really liking Jude, and loving that it's a nickname to Julius since that's also a family name : )
