Need boy and girl vs. name to go with vs. Harper Katherine

We have a 6 year old daughter named Harper Katherine. We thought she’d be an only child bc the doctors told me I couldn’t get pregnant again, but I’m now 6 months along with boy/girl twins! We are so thrilled and now we just need names for our little miracles. What names do you think would go well with Harper Katherine? Last name is Barrett. Thank you!!

The Top Baby Name is...

Do you mind if they start with H???
Hannah Sophia or Hannah Claire
Hailey Olivia or Hailey Margaret
Harrison Luke or Harrison James
Hudson Levi or Hudson Kade

What do you think???

Thanks for the suggestions!! They dont’ have to start with H and they don’t have to be matchy. We were just having trouble coming up with names that would sound good with Harper.

I like Hudson Oliver- what do you think?

I’m not a fan of Hannah or Hailey, but I do like Claire. Sophia is our niece’s name so we can’t use that one. Margaret is my mom’s name, so I would definitely consider it for a MN.

Thank you for the suggestions. I like Liam, Lauren, Carter, and Riley.

Do you guys think it would be OK to use a more traditional name like Lauren with a sister named Harper?

I don’t think all H names would be corny. But it might be better to use different letters.

I think it’s best to use different letters. Everyone has their own sense of individuality that way.

Yeah, they are really close. I’d go with something other than Carter.

Okay, I think I like Hudson Oliver Barrett for our son (though still open to other ideas bc I have to run them by my husband!), so Harper Katherine, Hudson Oliver, and I need another girl’s name. Definitely does NOT need to start with H. Thanks so much for your help!

Maxwell/Maxton, nn Max

I like Jackson (nn Jack), Cooper, and Sawyer. Finn is also cute, but I don’t care for Finnley. I like Garrett, but I can’t name my son Garrett Barrett :)

Jackson Barrett
Cooper Barrett
Sawyer Barrett

Georgia Claire made me think that Virginia might be good- my husband is from Virginia and we got married there. Does Virginia Margaret sound okay with Harper and Jackson? I’m still open to other names.

Harper and Hudson really does set it up where you almost need another H name. But...

Hudson Oliver and Piper Margaret
Hudson Oliver and Riley Elizabeth
Hudson Oliver and Helena Claire

Ireland is pretty, but neither of us have ever been there. Would it be dumb to name her after place we’ve never seen (even though I am part Irish)?

Virginia is ok...not my fav. I know among teens it tends to have a sexual connotation.
Harper, Jackson, & Maggie?

I love Virginia :) It’s my best friend’s name, so I’m a bit biased, but she’s a lovely lady.

I don’t think it would be dumb. I’ve never been there either, but I would still use it.

Harper, Jackson, and Avery?
posted by guest :: 2008-09-25 14:19:10 | report
Also, if Virginia has meaning to you, it makes it all that more special (as opposed to a name that just ’sounds good’)

I’ve known my best friend for nearly ten years (since 9th grade) and the "virgin" type jokes aren’t nearly as bad as people make it out to be. Besides, if she (like my friend) has a good sense of humor it’s really a moot point.

Okay, I think I do like:
Harper Katherine
Jackson Oliver (nn Jack?)
Virginia Margaret (nn Ginger?)

What do you guys think? Are Jack and Ginger cute for twins? Do they sound all right with Harper?

Also, I hope this doesn’t offend anybody, but honestly- do you think Ginger is a stripper name? It’s the only nn I like for Virginia, but I wonder if it sounds bad...

I like’s a beautiful name. But I wouldn’t knowingly give my child a name that could get her teased, especially sexual teasing.

I think Ginger is cute! But I think Harper and Jackson are really hip and modern, and Virginia just doesn’t fit well. I think something like Riley or Avery or something else modern is a better sib set.

Sheridan and Holland don’t sound like little girl names. Abigail and Natalie are great. I’d go with one of them.

posted by guest :: 2008-09-25 14:55:06 | report
I like the name, but I’m not sure I’d like to say it all the time. I think I would get tired of it. If you say it a lot, it starts to sound funny. Just make sure you’re not going to tired of saying the name all the time. There really isn’t any way of shortening it for a girl.
posted by guest :: 2008-09-25 14:55:53 | report
I guess you could use Kensie/Kensey as a nn. Maybe??? I just think saying Kennedy all day long would get really old are hard to say. A shorter name might be better.
posted by guest :: 2008-09-25 14:57:38 | report
I think it might be a good idea to choose a name that’s not a last name. Harper, Jackson, Kennedy are all last names and that starts to look matchy and themed.
