My name list has grown a little :) Before, the only real "list" I had was my boys list. My girls have been in tatters... but I think its finally coming together a little <3

Evie Caroline Rose
Piper Emily
Zoey Linnea
Aria Violet
Scarlett Victoria
June Margaret
Eloise Kate
Mabel Sophie

Archer Cole
Roman Connor
Wilson Theodore // Theodore Wilson
Finn Christopher
Benjamin Grey // Benjamin Hale
Eli Nicastro

A few of these are honoring names, or at least forms of family names. Caroline, Rose, Emily, Linnea, Nicastro, etc. Mosly the middles are honoring. And many of these are only My List, rather than Our List. June Margaret, Mabel Sophie, Theodore, and Eli are My List Only.

I'm always up for suggestions, but this time I'm looking for some opinions! :) Lately I've been leaning less towards vintage and more towards just plain traditional. As much as I adore vintage, very few ever are liked by Mike. But he likes a few traditional names, so eh. Like Caroline, Emily, etc. I also really like nature names lately, Linnea, Violet.. yupp. In an ideal world, I'd have a fair mix of vintage and nature, buuuut ah well.

Anyway, thanks in advance!!

Evie Caroline Rose- Pretty, your gonna think I'm a dork but Evie makes me think of the Pokemon :P
Piper Emily- Emily Piper has a bit better flow to me, but still cute
Zoey Linnea- Not my style but nice
Aria Violet- Very cute and trendy without be Kre8tive
Scarlett Victoria- Very classic and pretty
June Margaret- Margaret June has better flow to me but still nice and classic
Eloise Kate- Even switched the flow is a little off for me but its nice
Mabel Sophie- It's cute but Sophie Mabel is adorable :wub:

Archer Cole- Very classic but cool sounding, handsome
Roman Connor- LOVE!
Wilson Theodore // Theodore Wilson- Wilson isn't my style but I love Theodore
Finn Christopher- Christopher Finn has better flow to me but thats mains because Christopher is FN only for me haha
Benjamin Grey // Benjamin Hale- Cute, my only problem with Grey (even though I love it along with Grayson/Graydon) is that just Grey alone (especially spelled this way) make me think of the book 50 Shades of Grey. My second youngest cousin, who was born last year, is named Grey and when people find out they give looks of surprise and gasp " Like that book!?" and my aunt is seriously thinking about changing his name.
Eli Nicastro- It's nice, not my style but nice.

Thanks for your input, Lauren! :)

Lol! Evie does make me think of the pokemon, but it also has other associations for me :) Plus, to me, Pokemon isn't a bad association ;) Heck, in my bedroom I have a collage of bulbasaurs on my wall :')

Emily Piper does flow better and I do like it. Not sure if I like it more or not but I do like it :)

For Zoey Linnea, I like each name individually, but not really much in this combo honestly. Just scrambled for a combo there :( I love Linnea, cause my middle name is Lynette and my aunts in Marilyn and my cousins middle name is Lynn and so on, I feel like it'd be cute to keep more Linn/Lyn's in the family <3 Zoey I'm unsure of though

Aria Violet is kinda trendy which is why its not first on my list <3

I only like Margaret as a middle name :( Same with Sophie and Kate. I especially want June and Eloise as first names, but I can't find combo's for them <3

I adore Theodore, unfortunately Mike doesn't. He'd possibly keep it as a middle name though <3

There are a bunch of Christophers in my family, some of which are very close to me. So I don't quite feel comfortable with it as a first name. We adore Finn though. Its so hard to find middle names for one syllable first names!!

I read 50 shades and all and the association so far doesn't bother me. Then again, I personally thought the book was dumb. No offence. I think the book will be a quick phase, idk. I hope so at least. Plus its a middle name, so idk.

Again, thank you very much!!! :)

Evie Caroline Rose I love this name, although I voted for Caroline Evie on your other post, it was a tough choice and I love that you added Rose.

Piper Emily Again, I really love this name. Although I can't decide if I like Piper Emily or Emily Piper better, but either way the combo is amazing. :)

Zoey Linnea I am never sure how to pronounce Linnea, and I'm pretty sure I'm pronouncing it wrong in my head right now so it doesn't sound the greatest with Zoey. BUT I'm sure if you could actually pronounce it properly it would sound great. :)

Aria Violet I love this one as well! I have really been liking Aria lately, and I love Violet. Great combination!
Scarlett VictoriaThis is a very lovely combo. :) Neither name is really my style but they sound great together, and also look great!

June Margaret I really like June, for me it's more of a middle name but it sounds great with Margaret! :)

Eloise Kate I love Eloise, and it sounds great with Kate as well! I prefer the spelling Cate though.
Mabel Sophie I love seeing Sophie in the middle name spot! It's such a popular name right now, but it's also very pretty. :) Mabel isn't my style but it sounds great in this combo.

Archer Cole Neither name is my style, but they sound great together.
Roman Conner Again, neither are my style BUT I actually love this combination. :)

Wilson Theodore/ Theodore Wilson I prefer Theodore as a first name, but the possibility of the nickname Will is great. So either way is awesome. But I think Theodore Wilson would get my vote

Finn Christopher I prefer Finley, but Finn is still a great name. I don't really like the name Christopher but I do like the short name paired with a long name thing going on. :)
Benjamin Grey/ Benjamin Hale I think I like Benjamin Hale a little bit more, just because Grey isn't really my style but you couldn't go wrong either way.

Eli Nicastro Again, it's not my style but the names sound great together. :)


It seems like we have completely different taste in boys names, but overall I love your combinations! :)

I read the books too, they sucked. Plain and simple. It's just that since basically everyone (especially women) knows what the book is, that it would be a concern for me personally. My god-daughter shares the exact same name as the main character from Twilight so book connections don't bother me to much, its just what 50 Shades is about that makes the connotation unsavory to me. :)

Evie Caroline Rose - I adore all three of these names! I don't know how I feel about double middle names but they sound beautiful together.
Piper Emily - Lately I have begun to like Piper a little more and so this combo makes me really happy :)
Zoey Linnea - neither are my favourite names however they do sound absolutely precious together.
Aria Violet - elegant, classic, beautful!!
Scarlett Victoria - too much of the 't' sound in this combo for me. But I do love Victoria as a middle name.
June Margaret - <3 <3 Margaret is a very special name for me and June is the month I was born in. So i really enjoy this combo!
Eloise Kate - Splendid! Not much else I can say
Mabel Sophie - I would much prefer Sophie Mabel, but I do like both names.

Archer Cole - love, love, love Archer Cole. I think you have just given me a new favourite name :)
Roman Connor - haha unfortunately Roman just reminds me of Nicki Minaj and so it is hard to picture a boy being named Roman. I like Connor though.
Wilson Theodore // Theodore Wilson - Thedore Wilson! Much bettert than the reverse which is kind of tired and old.
Finn Christopher - love it!!! I'm not a huge fan of Christopher but I like this combo.
Benjamin Grey // Benjamin Hale - neither middle names are my style at all but I adore Benjamin and a one syllable middle name goes well.
Eli Nicastro - I love Eli, but Nicastro is just a little too wild for me. However if it has meaning, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks :)


~~


My faves: Aria Violet, Eloise Kate, Archer Cole, Finn Christopher

Posted 06 November 2012 - 07:58 AM

Thanks ladies!!! :)

Shay, Linnea is pronounced lih-NAY-uh :) And its okay, I'm not loving Zoey and Linnea together <3
I honestly can't decide if I prefer Cate or Kate myself <3 Mike likes Kate, but Cate looks so soft and feminine (:

Lauren, true true. It does have that "sensual" thing going on there. I'm hoping by the time I have kids anyway the association will be gone <3 Grey would only be a middle name to a future son anyway, I have names I like a little more that would come first. One can only hope that one or two kids into my future the phase will be gone!

Amy, I'm pretty unsure about two middle names a lot of times. I don't want to mess with the flow :/ but I know Mike wants our first kid, if its a girl, to honor his grandmother. And Rose is one of her favorite girls names and all. :)
Aw, thats coincidental and sweet lol! That June and Margaret both have meaning for you and all <3 June has some meaning to me to, though Margaret is just one that I like <3
Hehe, feel free to swipe it! :) I'm not one to hold anyone back from keeping a name they love because its "mine" lol. I absolutely adore Archer Cole right now though, and thats probably what I'd name my firstborn child (assuming its a boy lol). Though Mike insists our first will be Roman Connor, so we'd have to see about that (; I had to google the whole Nicki Minaj and Roman thinger.. I was like whaaaaaats she talking about? haha. Tbh thats just really weird. Like really really weird. She says its her male alter ego? WEEIRD. lol
I have lots of family names Christopher to honor in Finn Christopher <3
I've been having trouble finding Benjamin a good middle name. Those are just two middle names we like and I figured I'd could throw in there tbh
Hehe, normally it would be too wild for me to.. but Nicastro is my grandparents surname / my mums maiden name. I'm really close to my grandparents and I wanted to honor them but their first names are not my style and don't really have any versions of it that I like. Plus are super common in my family tree. <3

Thanks so so so much!!

Aw I really like the meaning behind Nicastro! I like when parents honour their relatives by using maiden names. I think its really original and if it's the right name, it is so special. Already I am warming up to Nicastro just because of the meaning :)

My gosh trying to respond to these on my iPhone hpw on earth do you do it all the time it's driving me insane lol!! Ill do my best to help out though :)

Evie Caroline Rose: I honestly don't like double middle names but this name would lose its "prettiness" without al three names! So stunning ❤❤
Piper Emily: Gorgeous! Includes two names I know you very much adore.
Zoey Linnea: Zoey is pretty, not too keen on Linnea but as a combination both names work well!
Aria Violet: Beautiful!! Aria does of course remind me of the aria awards (huge music awards here) but doubt that concerns you so otherwise lovely name <33
Scarlett Victoria: What can I say? We have very similar taste and that is a good thing ❤
June Margaret: Not my style both names flow well though, I like the shorter first name with a longer middle name :)
Eloise Kate: Pretty!! Few different nn options too!
Mabel Sophie: Sophie is one of my top names so no need to say more lol. Mabel isn't my style. Sophie Mabel would also be nice, as would Mabel Sophia which has an amazing flow!

Archer Cole: Archer reminds me of archery still :/ otherwise it flows well
Roman Connor: My fav off the boys list! So very handsome!
Wilson Theodore // Theodore Wilson: Wilson sounds more like a last name to me! So I guess I go with Theodore Wilson.
Finn Christopher: a more fuller name such as Finley Christopher would be lowly with the nickname Finn just a suggestion however love this name too again with the shorter fn and longer nn ;)
Benjamin Grey // Benjamin Hale: great name! I think I like grey best.
Eli Nicastro: Eli is very manly sounding, I have recently began liking it again. I hope I don't sound silly but how do you pronounce the middle name? It looks Spanish or Italian or something :) Spanish I think?

Hope that helps not sure though couldn't really read over the whole topic properly on my phone :P

Posted 08 November 2012 - 09:25 PM

Thanks Amy! I like how it feels original but not out there :) Nic(k) is a really common name, and Castro is familiar (even if, unfortunately, Fidel is the common association :L ). Plus surname names are totally in trend (ie Mason) so I feel like it almost fits in with the trend! :)

Thanks Ash!!! I don't find many double middle names that I love, but it feels like a package deal here: I get to use favorite names and honor two people through the middles! (Aunt Carol and Mikes grandmother). And I don't think Evie Caroline Rose is too much of a mouthful.
Hehe, no aria awards here(: though we have awards like Emmy awards and Emmy is still really popular here. Idk <3
I love June and I love Margaret, I think they don't have enough zest to them though. Zoey Margaret just came to mind though and I'm really liking that! <3 June will need a more modern name with it as well, keep it interesting and all <3
I actually took an archery class when I was younger. Me, my brother, and some family friends. It was just a summer course or something though. I just like how it sounds, though the association doesn't hurt to me. Plus I'm a sucker for Archie haha <3
Hehehe, I think Roman Connor will end up being my firstborn sons name haha <3 Mikes dead set on using it, thankfully its a good choice <3 i do love Roman, though I love Archer slightly more. But being Mike loves Roman so much and I do love it it probably will end up being used first. I'd almost want twin boys to use both Roman and Archer at the same time LOL! Key word almost. I'd rather a few years between babies hahaha x
Wilson is a surname, though Wil works well as a regular name. A lot of surnames are in, so I feel like it'd fit in with other babies. Like Carson or Mason or William. Idk why I just picture an adorable little boy in an old man outfit haha <3
Finley is nice as well, though it doesn't sound great with Mike's last name (ending in the EEE sound and all). I do like Finley, and Finley Christopher is super handsome! I feel like Finn works better with Mikes surname though <3 (I'd recommend looking at his facebook, but his surname is kinda hard to guess the pronunciation of haha)
Eli does feel so manly <3 Nicastro is nih-CASS-trow, kinda. Like the beginning of Nicholas "Nic" and the name Castro (like fidel castro :L). You were right on the Italian one! Its my grandparents surname, my grandfather is 100% Italian :) He actually goes by Nick because he joined the army and everyone goes by surname in the army but Nicastro is so long so he always went by Nick. So I feel like Nicastro makes a good middle name. I defs wouldn't use it as a first name, I do want to honor both my grandparents though <3

Tehehe, I totally understand ;) Thanks bunches girl!!! <3

My favourites from your girls are:

Evie Caroline Rose
Piper Emily
Zoey Linnea

June Margaret


I do like Aria Violet, but it's more of a GP name for me.

Scarlett Victoria is lovely, but I do think a lot of your names have more... "umph!".

Eloise Kate is nice, but I'm unsure of the flow. Kate Eloise would probably flow better, but I love Eloise as a first name.

And Mabel Sophie is very sweet, but I do think Sophie Mabel would flow better.


As for the boys, I ADORE ( :wub:) Archer Cole, Roman Connor, Wilson Theodore, Finn Christopher and Benjamin Grey!

Eli Nicastro is definitely not for me.

Eli is sweet, but Nicastro is NMS at all.

Oh my, thanks Yas!!! :D :D

Eloise Kate and Mabel Sophie both definitely need some work <3 As with Scarlett Victoria - all names I love but wanted a middle/first name for them sooo bad so I threw together something fairly nice <3 Kate, Sophie, Mabel, and Victoria I'd all prefer as middle names. Eloise a first, and Scarlett could be either.

Nicastro is a family name - otherwise I'd probably never use it tbh. Its a two in one deal really, honoring my mothers half of the family. Its my mums maiden name and her parents surname. I love my grandparents so much, but their first names are Richard and Barbara and I'd rather not use either (there are a gazillion Richards in my family and a fair few Barbara's :l).

Henry... I've been mourning over because I don't know if I could convince Mike that Henry is the most fabulous name ever to be spoken :( I might be able to fight him for using it as a middle name, but otherwise it might have to be a GP :'( I do need to find a good first/middle name for it. Seeing as I have these fabulously long lists of names to sort through, I'm imaging I'll find a suitable combo! <3
