    Sibling name to Deacon

    Hi All!

    We are in the very early stages of considering another baby. Our son is almost 2 and I love his name. It is very meaningful as it includes both living great grandfathers names. Our issue is that we cannot find a name we love as much as we loved our first.

    Our style for boys seems to be surname /occupational. Not common but familiar. Our girl name contenders we do not agree on at all. I long longer frilly names and my husband likes more unisex names.

    Some examples:
    Archer
    Beckett
    Bennett
    Bishop
    Conrad
    Cormac
    Evin
    Fergus
    Forest
    Grady
    Hank
    Harrison
    Layton
    Micha
    Nicholas
    Peter
    Patrick
    Shepherd
    Sawyer
    Waylon

    Alice
    Agnes
    Beatrice
    Bayla
    Demaris
    Eleanor
    Elora
    Emmeline
    Eliza
    Florence
    Georginia
    Kate
    Marjorie
    Natalie
    Ophelia
    Reese
    Rachel
    Taylor
    Kelly
    Vada
    Vera

    Any suggestions are welcome!

    Deacon & ________
    (I kept some of yours that I liked the most and then threw in a few more suggestions!)


    Boys:
    Archer
    Beckett
    Bennett
    Conrad
    Cormac
    Everett
    Forest
    Parker
    Patrick
    Shepherd- I'm sort of drawn to this one, but it could sound very church-like with Deacon. As Deacon is a position in a church and Jesus Christ is said to be a Shepherd.
    Sawyer-a favorite of mine

    Girls:
    Alice
    Audrey
    Beatrice
    Eleanor
    Elora-a favorite of mine
    Emmeline
    Eliza
    Georgia-I don't love Georginia, but this is a shorter version which might flow a bit more with Deacon!
    Lorelai-could do the nn "Rory" which can be unisex which your husband likes!
    Natalia-A less popular version of Natalie!
    Natalie
    Ophelia
    Taylor

    Have you and your husband thought about doing a girly name for the first name and then a more unisex name for middle (or the other way around). It might be a good compromise unless you use family names for the middle!
