So, I made a post a little while back with three boy names I really liked as siblings, but now I wanted to put out here my top three or four names for each gender and see what you guys think.
William Lee "Will" - This is one that I'm pretty sure about. Lee is honoring because it's the middle name of both me and my father, and I really just love Will.
Caspar Robin "Cas" - I love "Cas-" names for boys, including Caspian and Castor, but I've decided I like Caspar best. Robin is a bit of a dorky honoring because I've come to love the tale of Robin Hood ever since watching BBC's television series. The only thing that bothers me a bit about this name is that the R's trip up the flow a bit, but I don't think it's a huge deal.
Peter Jack "PJ" - I really adore the nickname PJ, and I was having trouble with this one because I didn't like how Peter John was kind of the stereotypical first/middle combo for PJ. I got around this without changing Peter (because I like it) by changing John to Jack, which honors my grandfather who I never got to meet, John "Jack".
Caleb Thomas - Will, Cas, and PJ are definitely my top three, just because they have more special meanings. With Caleb Thomas, I just really like both of these names and I like them together. I feel like there's a lot of consonant sounds between the end of Caleb and the beginning of Thomas, so I'm not entirely solid on this one.
Claire Melinda - This is probably the only girl combo I'm solid on. I've always loved Claire. Melinda honors my mother, Linda, which is why I originally picked the name, but it's grown on me since.
Beatrice Maeve/Maeve Beatrice/Maeve Annaliese - This one's quite a conundrum. The problem is I love all three of these names in the first name spot. The only thing about Beatrice is that I don't like any nicknames for it, but I feel like with the other names here I feel like just Beatrice would be too formal-sounding along with theoretical siblings Will, PJ, etc. I have the same problem with Annaliese, where I don't like Annie and Liese/Lise feels awkward to me. As for Maeve, I'm okay with it being in the first or middle spot. Help with this one, please?
_____ Lorelei - I'm set on using Lorelei as a middle name to honor an aunt Lori who has greatly influenced my life. I also like Maeve as a first name here, but other than that I'm not sure. I'm debating Maya Lorelei, which I'm not thrilled with. Suggestions please?
So, in short, along with general feedback on my list I'd like suggestions for alternate middle names for Caleb, alternate first names for Thomas, advice on the Beatrice/Maeve/Annaliese situation, first name suggestions for Lorelei. Thanks!
