    names similar to Violet and Eloise...

    I'm just over 7 months along with my third child whose sex is unknown. I have two beautiful girls Violet and Eloise. I'm looking for a name that would work with my girl's names as a sibling set... any ideas? I like that the names have an old feel to them, but aren't musty sounding. I like girls to have girl names and boys to have boy names, versus any unisex names. Otherwise, I don't really have any other thoughts... some names I'm sort of looking at, but not in love with:

    Helena
    James
    Vivienne
    Ruby - like this, but not sure if its ok to have a Violet and Ruby
    Scarlett - see above

    I'm really struggling with boys... I kind of like George, but I'm wondering if he'll get teased in his teens for being named George?
    Your thoughts would be great!
    Thanks!

    Re: names similar to Violet and Eloise...

    I LOVE Violet and Eloise (two of my favorites)! Wow! I totally relate with and understand your name critera, and hope we can help you name baby number three!

    Helena: Helena is one of my favorite names, and I love the nickname Nell. How will you be pronouncing Helena? For me, it's Hel-len-uh, but others may say Hel-LEE-nuh or Hel-LAY-nuh. Because of this issue, I prefer it as a middle name, but that's just me. :-)

    James: A fantastic name! Simple, handsome, and classic.

    Vivienne: I really love Vivienne, too, but wonder if two V names is too much. If it doesn't bother you, go for it!

    Ruby: I personally wouldn't want two color names, but that's just me. Ruby is a darling name!

    Scarlett: See above....

    George: I think George is an awesome name, and I don't see little George being teased at all. (And this coming from someone who zeroes in on the teasing potential of far too many names!)

    Some more ideas for your baby:

    Violet, Eloise, and:

    Amelia
    Annabelle
    Alice
    Anne
    Beatrix
    Beatrice
    Clementine
    Charlotte
    Celia
    Caroline
    Catherine
    Clara
    Claire
    Cora
    Daphne
    Diana
    Delphine
    Emmeline
    Eve
    Evangeline
    Esme
    Frances
    Francesca
    Felicity
    Georgia
    Georgiana
    Genevieve
    Grace
    Hope
    Isla
    Isadora
    Isabelle
    Jane
    Josephine
    Juliet
    Julia
    Kate
    Lydia
    Lila
    Lydia
    Lucy
    Miranda
    Mae
    Margot
    Mirabelle
    Nora
    Nell
    Phoebe
    Susannah
    Tess
    Willa

    I love every one of these names, which makes it hard to pick a favorite, but I adore Genevieve, Beatrix, Clementine, Charlotte, Georgia, Josephine, Juliet, Susannah, and Tess with Violet and Eloise.

    Boys:

    Violet, Eloise, and:
    Andrew
    Augustin (nn Gus, Augie, or Augus)
    August
    Benjamin
    Colin
    Charles
    Chester
    Dashiell
    David
    Dexter
    Duncan
    Edward
    Everett (which may be too close to Violet)
    Finnian
    Gideon
    Henry
    Harrison
    Hugh
    Hugo
    Jasper
    Joseph
    Miles
    Milo
    Nathaniel
    Nicholas
    Oliver
    Oscar
    Peter
    Phineas
    Samuel
    Sebastian
    Thomas
    Truman
    Theodore (nn Teddy or Theo)
    Xavier
    William
    Wilson

    I love all of the above, but to pick a few, Henry, Oliver, William, and Theodore sound lovely with Violet and Eloise.

    I hoped this helped some! :-)

    Re: names similar to Violet and Eloise...

    Thanks for all the great suggestions Jill!
    My husband and I have a favorite for girl's and boys, but it seems to change every day :)!

    My frontrunner is Matilda, nn's would be Vi, Lulu, and Tillie which I think is adorable! Only negative is I'd have two starbaby names... what do you think?

    I like Henry for a boy, my husband wants Dashiell... what do you think of these two? Any more suggestions?

    I think Matilda or Henry would be too cute! Wouldn't worry too much about the 2 starbaby names, it's not like umm Maddox and Shiloh, something linked togeather and more associated with a certain family. Anyway, Violet, Eloise and Matilda or Henry sounds great!

    Matilda would be great, Jenny! Tillie, Lulu, and Vi is darling! As for the starbabies thing, like Smitty said, I wouldn't worry about it for a second. :-) However, if it really bothers you, listen to yourself and find a different name. It personally wouldn't bother me (and I worry about everything when it comes to names!), but you need to do what's right for you. :-)

    As for a baby boy, Henry is one of my favorite boys' names (along with Oliver and Edward, as I love the nn Teddy), so I'm rooting for Henry. Dashiell is lovely, too, so you really can't lose! Henry Dashiell sounds lovely, by the way, and you could always call him Dash.

    Henry, Vi, and Lulu sounds great, as does "Dash," Vi, and Lulu.

    Some more ideas:

    Daniel (close to Dashiell)
    Darby
    Elias (although it has the beginning of Eloise's name....)
    Gabriel
    Owen
    Quinlen
    Sullivan
    Stewart
    Xavier

    I listed my favorites in the first post, but a lot of these are great, too! I'm still rooting for Henry, though! Henry Dashiell. :-)

    Do you have a middle name for Matilda? Here are some ideas if you don't:

    Matilda Blythe
    Matilda Bess
    Matilda Caroline
    Matilda Catherine
    Matilda Charlotte
    Matilda Clementine (so cute!)
    Matilda Claire
    Matilda Elizabeth
    Matlida Frances
    Matilda Faith
    Matilda Grace
    Matilda Hope
    Matilda Jane (I love Matilda Jane!)
    Matilda Josephine
    Matilda Kate
    Matilda Louise
    Matilda Mae
    Matilda Rose
    Matilda Scarlett

    Keep us posted! :-)
