Now for a boy we are stuck between Benjamin Alphonse, Benjamin Ciel and Alphonse Ciel. Ciel is "See-El" and is a French name. Thoughts? 

 

For a girl right now our combo is Everly Francesca but we aren't in love with it. We also like Arietty (Air-ee-etty) but we have no combos for it. Suggestions would be GREAT!

 

We would prefer an older, uncommon/very underused name in the first spot with a classical "filler" middle name but all suggestions are welcome!!!

Benjamin Ciel gets my vote.  I'm not a fan of Alphonse, and Benjamin Alphonse is too long in my opinion. Honestly, you can't go wrong with Benjamin.  It's classic, easy to spell, ages well, and probably one of those names that are too masculine to be for a girl.  I'm not really a fan of Ciel either, but I like it better than Alphonse.  Maybe Benjamin Kyle?   :wub:   I am kind of partial to Kyle as it is the name of a person who is very important to me.  I know I've suggested Benjamin Carlisle before, and I really do like it.  Both names are masculine and I think of a hard-working man when I think of those 2 names... Of course you want your little boy to grow into a hard-working man, lol.  Benjamin Lyle is another option, although I don't like it quite as much as I do Benjamin Kyle or Benjamin Carlisle.

 

 

I adore Everly Francesca nickname Evie.  I honestly think it's prefect.  Francesca has such spunk and Everly seems kind of classic sound to it and it balances out Francesca.  The nickname Evie is adorable.  I also liked Adelaide Francesca nickname Addy, but that seemed to be a bit long.  It seems that you like kind of classic-y girl names with a nickname ending in the -ee sound.  I don't like Arietty because it doesn't seem like a usable name, I don't know how to explain it.

I voted for Benjamin Alphonse, but Benjamin Ciel works well too!  Here are some middle name suggestions for Arietty:

 

Arietty Grace

Arietty Jane

Arietty Ruth

Arietty Paige

Arietty Lynn

Arietty Lucille

Arietty Hope

Arietty Brooke

Arietty Lenore

Arietty Noelle

Arietty June

Arietty Belle

Arietty Blythe

Arietty Pearl

Arietty Violet

Arietty Claire

 

I like Everly Francesca, but I understand if you're not in love with it.  It seems a little long to me, and the individual names don't really compliment each other stylistically, in my opinion.  Instead of Everly, perhaps you could use Evelyn, Eve, Eva?  Or instead of Francesca, maybe you could use Francine or Frances?  Just a thought.

 

Would you like suggestions for other first / middle name combos?

I think Benjamin Alphonse has the best flow of the three. It's a little long, but that doesn't really bother me. I think Alphonse is so handsome and underrated.

I'm not a huge fan of Ciel; it doesn't roll off my tongue naturally. That's probably just my complete lack of French-ness, ha!

 

Everly Francesca is very pretty. Though I'm not a huge fan of Everly itself, the combo is lovely.

Arietty is very sweet. Whimsical, even. A nice, classic middle would balance it out nicely.

 

Arietty Charlotte

Arietty Florence

Arietty Faith

Arietty Jane

Arietty Judith

Arietty Kate

Arietty Rose

Arietty Cora

Arietty Georgia

Arietty Justine

Arietty Nicole

Arietty Willa / Willow

Arietty Simone

Arietty Iris

Arietty Morgan

Arietty Kay / Fay / May

Arietty Mabel

Arietty Hazel
