I am adoring how Everett and Archer sound together, they seem to really suit I'm on the fence with middle name John. Its one of Mikes favorite names, his best friends name too. And my little brother always said he'd have a son named John, so in a way it'd honor him. Everett John flows as well, and EJ could be a cute nick name. However I don't love the name John in itself. It is boring and overused imo. So idk. I've got it stuck there for now, but I may end up changing it eventually. I love Everett Noah or Everett Jack as well (though both middles are very popular as well).
Levi is more trendy and popular, its another that Mike has fallen in love with. He's watching a show with a bad to the bone character named Levi. I personally love the name Liam, but I know Mike will never go for it (plus it is FAR more popular, anyway). So I'm settling with Levi. Though I do love it. My only "thing" with it is really do you think it sounds too southern?
Holden is a little different than the two above, and would likely only be a middle name. I do like Holden Zachary, though not head over heels.
That gets me too, that Archer and Scarlett both have the -are- sound in the middle I was wondering if anyone else would notice. I seem to love that sound, being Charlie was a top contender for me but the -are- sound is too prominent for me to feel okay with it. Scarlett is a favorite of Mikes though, he really loves it. Emma and Emily are his #1 names, but the popularity irks me and all in all I don't adore the names all that much. I find them pretty, but just "love". Emma Scarlett definitely flows better, but I wouldn't call her Emma. And I would want to name my kiddo what I plan on calling them, so Scarlett first Riley is Mikes second favorite girls name, which is why I tried it too.
Astrid definitely is more harsh, but for some reason I find it all beautiful Its underused and different but not weird.. I can see the teasing potential, but idk. I can see it working nicely too. I might only use it as a middle, particularly cause I otherwise would have an A theme on siblings. But I love it <3
I don't mind that Violet sounds similar to violent, though I wont bring it up to Mike just in case. lol. I imagine dainty little flowers when I hear it lol
I like these suggestions though!
I like all of these, though I'm not quite in love yet. Who knows, maybe one will really grow on me I'm opened to more suggestions if anyone has any though! Thank you ladies so much! I really appreciate it <3
