Willow Jean is named after her father, William, but he doesn't want a Will Jr. We are nowhere near agreeing on any names yet but hoping for a spark that could point us in a nearer direction! Baby is due this October. TIA!

Since Willow is an honoring name, perhaps there are other names on your family tree you could use for her brother besides Will Jr.?

 

If you want to honor William again in your son's name, perhaps you could choose a name that sounds similar to it without being too matchy with Willow?

 

- Willow & Liam

- Willow & Weston

- Willow & Wesley

- Willow & Wyatt

 

Otherwise, since Willow is a nature name, a few other nature or word-inspired boys names came to mind:

 

- Willow & Archer

- Willow & Reid/Reed

- Willow & Thatcher

- Willow & Gray/Grayson

- Willow & Mason

- Willow & Easton

- Willow & Sawyer

- Willow & Heath

- Willow & Graham

- Willow & August

 

Here are some other names that I think compliment Willow in style/popularity/image:

 

- Willow & Everett

- Willow & Ezra

- Willow & Harrison

- Willow & Emmett

- Willow & Silas

- Willow & Cole

- Willow & Brantley

- Willow & Holden

 

Hope this helps!

Let us know what you think! Do you want more suggestions? :) Maybe it'd be sweet for him to be named after you, if you'd like. Good luck!

Still at square one but every suggestion helps us! I would love for him to have an A name. I'm an Amy.

I think a meaning match could be a good way to connect your name with your sons. Amy means dearly loved, or beloved.

 

David- means beloved

Lennan- means sweetheart or lover

 

My favorite by far however is Connelly/Conelly. It means love or friendship. It shares the double 'L' with Willow and I think they would make a good sibset.
