You may have notice that I've converted to the 2 middle name side, haha :) You also may have noticed that all of my boy first names are biblical. It's a theme I decided to go with. My girls list is a whole lot less put together than the boys.

I'd love comments on the combos and suggestions for ones that have question marks. I also would like some more first name suggestions if you have time. There are some questions at the bottom as well.

Evangeline Ruth Mabel
Jane Eloise _________?
Holland Anna Caroline
Genevieve Isobel May
Senna (Briar Rosalie?)
Jocelyn ___________?


I also really like Hadley for girls...

Silas Henry Jeremiah
Ezra Nicholas Franklin
Gideon Thomas Blake
Josiah Oliver Wade
Jedidiah Ivan Graham
Zephaniah Jackson Rhys
Kenan (Alistair Jude?)

Nehemiah __________?

- Do you think it's okay to pronounce Kenan like KEN-an (like in Kenneth) instead of KEEN-an? I usually don't like to change pronunciations, but I feel like it's uncommon enough that people wouldn't really know.

-Do you think it's okay to have one theme for boys and not use it for the girls? There's not a whole lot of biblical girl names that I like...


-Is Nehemiah too odd? If not, what are some cute nicknames?

Thank you guys!

I'd love to go double middle names too, but Mikes not into it. Which I guess is fine being his surname is so long.

Evangeline Ruth Mabel is darling, I really love it! Both Evangeline and Mabel are ones i really love! And Ruths gorgeous <3
Jane Eloise I love it! Jane Eloise Vivian, Jane Eloise Maeve, Jane Eloise Candace?
Holland Anna Caroline - I'm not a fan of Holland though its a nice way to get nick name Holly. Anna is timeless and classic and Carolines an absolute fave of mine.
Genevieve Isobel May - LOVE <3 really, love!
Senna Briar Rosalie - I looove Briar Rosalie, again both on my list! Senna's not my style but it works here
Jocelyn I've been growing on as I've met m=Jocelyn's lately! I'll start off suggesting one middle name and when you find one you like I can suggest a second to match? Jocelyn Beatrice, Jocelyn Arabelle, Jocelyn Calla?


Ah I'll have to come back for the boys, on my way out the door :/

Opps, didn't even see Hadley right there :) I am a tad biased towards Hadley, lol :P Chose it in my username! <3 Its really pretty, I like! Hadley Victoria, Hadley Cheyenne, Hadley Magdalena?

Silas Henry Jeremiah is real handsome, I adore Henry and Silas is real handsome <3
Ezra Nicholas Franklin - love!! Perfect combo <3 I love Ezra, and I actually like Ezzy as a nick name. Nicholas is traditional and handsome, and I really like Franklin <3
Gideon Thomas Blake - flow is perfect, all the names suit wonderfully together!
Josiah Oliver Wade is alright, I like Josiah and Oliver in general, but for whatever reason don't love it
Jedidiah Ivan Graham is nice, I looove Graham!! On my top 3 ;) Ivan is a choice my sister likes, its neat. And Jedidiah feels a little too "hick" for me? No offense <3 <3
Zephaniah Jackson Rhys is cool. Not sure I'd use Zephaniah IRL, but its handsome in its own way! Zeph <3 Defs needs shorter names to go with it though, Rhys is perfect. Jackson goes great too, I like the 3 2 1 flow. For names with two middle names, my FAVORITE flow is 2 3 1 <3 I had Piper Amelie Faye on my list for so long purely cause of the flow :')
Kenan Alistair Jude - handsome though nms
Nehemiah is alright, nms. Nehemiah Daniel, Nehemiah Louis, Nehemiah Rory?

I think Kenan pronounced KEN-an would cause confusion, but people would catch on <3 Its definitely uncommon, so you have some leeway.

I also think its perfectly fine for only the boys to have a theme! Its actually extremely common these days to have traditional boys names (ie biblical) and then more unusual girls names. People tend to feel safer adventuring for girls but not boys.. I read an article on it :') So I think your fam would end up a lot like others <3 Plus, biblical names really are just timeless classics in a way. Like when I hear Silas, I think Silas Marner before the bible <3 Josiah just sounds traditional. Jedidiah sounds southern, Kenan sounds traditional... Zephaniah definitely sounds different ;) I guess Ezra and Nehemiah pop up biblical to my head, however Ezra's getting really trendy lately so he'd fit in with all the other Ezra's popping up now adays <3

Nehemiah's not one I'd use, but to each their own. I'd think Ham is a doable one, from ne-HEM-iah. Though if he's pudgy it might cause teasing :L Nehem? Almost rhyming with Liam? You could even spell it Niam too to make it simple. Or Niem.

Hope these help!

Love Jane Eloise Maeve :wub:
Jocelyn Beatrice is sweet, too <3
Hadley Victoria is lovely! I think it balances styles so well!

Nehemiah Rory is darling, and I really like Niem :) Nehemiah Rory Daniel <3 <3

Thank you sooo much! :) ;) :D

Evangeline Ruth Mabel: I think the name Evangeline is sooo beautiful! I think Eve (or even Evie) is such a pretty nickname for it. I love Ruth Mabel as a middle name combo, both names are totally classy and beautiful!

Jane Eloise (?): Jane is such a beautiful name that I think will make a pretty good comeback! I think a more unique second middle is in order!

Jane Eloise Athena

Jane Eloise Regan

Jane Eloise Hannah

Jane Eloise Lark

Jane Eloise Gretchen

Jane Eloise Penny

Jane Eloise Wendy

Jane Eloise Charlotte

Jane Eloise Francesca


Holland Anna Caroline: I don't love Holland, but I think Holly is a pretty nick name and I think Holland goes really well with Anna Caroline! I think Caroline is a beautiful name, it's really too bad that I have a personal, negative association with it.

Genevieve Isobel May: I think Genevieve is SUCH a beautiful name! If it went better with my girls I would totally add it! And this combo is so beautiful, I think any double middle ending in May is gorgeous!

Senna (Briar Rosalie?): I think Senna is really cute, and Briar Rosalie is pretty with it! Isn't Sleeping Beauty named Briar Rose? I bet ANY little princess would love that!

Jocelyn (?): I don't love Jocelyn, but it's not terrible! I personally prefer the alternative Josephine, which goes really well with your other girls!

Jocelyn Abigail Grace | Josephine Abigail Grace

Jocelyn Ivy Clare | Josephine Ivy Clare

Jocelyn Olivia Juliet | Josephine Olive Juliet

Jocelyn Ava Lucy | Josephine Ava Lucy


Hadley: I love Hadley, I think it's a super cute middle...what about Jane Hadley Eloise, from earlier in the list? Jane Eloise Hadley doesn't work as well in my head.


Silas Henry Jeremiah: I love, love, LOVE the name Silas! And Henry is also one of my favorites. I don't love Jeremiah as much, and it makes the name really long for me.

Ezra Nicholas Franklin: I love everything about this name! It sounds great, and Franklin is such a handsome name!!

Gideon Thomas Blake: Blake always makes me think of William Blake the poet so I love it! Gideon is really cute, reminds me of Gulliver, which I just love! This name has great overall flow!

Josiah Oliver Wade: I love the middle combo Oliver Wade! SO handsome! Josiah isn't my style but it works!

Jedidiah Ivan Graham: Again, I adore Ivan Graham but Jedidiah isn't quite my style. (:

Zephaniah Jackson Rhys: How do you pronounce Zephaniah? Jackson is ok (I personally prefer Jack), but Rhys is super handsome!

Kenan (Alistair Jude?): I love love love Alistair Jude! I don't really like Kenan though.

Nehemiah (?): Eh I don't love this name. =/

Do you think it's okay to pronounce Kenan like KEN-an (like in Kenneth) instead of KEEN-an? I usually don't like to change pronunciations, but I feel like it's uncommon enough that people wouldn't really know.

If it's spelled Kenan that's how I would say it. (:

Do you think it's okay to have one theme for boys and not use it for the girls? There's not a whole lot of biblical girl names that I like...

Totally ok! It works. I have two different themes, for boys it's superheroes and for girls it's literary!

Is Nehemiah too odd? If not, what are some cute nicknames?

Again, I don't love it...but what about Noah as a nickname?

Jane Eloise Charlotte is really pretty! Just before I saw this, I added Jane Hadley Eloise to my list, lol, I guess we had the same taste there :) Jane has been one of my favorite girl names for as long as I can remember, I just love the simplicity of it compared to a lot of names out there today. Especially compared to the "yooneek" and "cre8ive" ones, lol


I LOVE Jocelyn Olivia Juliet <3 I'm not usually a fan of Olivia for myself, but this is really pretty!

I'm glad to be getting some positive feedback on Franklin today, I love it SO MUCH but it seems to be one not very many people like these days. I guess that's why I originally put it in the middle spot.

Zephaniah is pronounced Zeff-en-eye-uh. The Zephan part is pronounced a lot like Stefan/Steffen.

I think Nehemiah is pretty much just on my GP list now. :)

Thank you thank you thank you for your feedback!

Love Jane Eloise Maeve :wub:
Jocelyn Beatrice is sweet, too <3
Hadley Victoria is lovely! I think it balances styles so well!

Nehemiah Rory is darling, and I really like Niem :) Nehemiah Rory Daniel <3 <3

Thank you sooo much! :) ;) :D


Aw glad you like some!! :) Oh gosh I adore Jane Eloise Maeve, it looks like something that would come right off my list!! <3 And Hadley Victoria actually has been off and on my list. Like I love it and would melt to meet a child named Hadley Victoria, yet IDK if its MY daughters name haha.

Oh gosh Nehemiah Rory Daniel's great!! :) I think Niem would work really well, though its different. But not out there, just unique :) Makes Nehemiah a little more usable tbh!
