Adoption vs. Names

I have a son Alexander (Andy) Ryan, 7. I was told I would not be able to have any more children after Andy, due to complications I had with him. When Andy was 3 we decided to adopt a baby girl from an abusive home. We named her Amelia(Emmi) Renee, 4. We are now in the process of adopting my DH’s twin niece and nephew. They are 3 months old. His sister could no longer care for them in a healthy way to say the least. We would like to change their names to match our children’s names. Currently their names are Ozias Maddox and Markie Oaklie. We have no interest in keeping their initials the way they are. Can you suggest boy and girl names that start with A and Middle initial R?

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
