5 of each?!
I recently met someone who just had her FIFTH girl! (the only names caught were Taylor & Amelia). It got me thinking.. what would I name 5 girls, or 5 boys too for that matter?!
(Today) I think :
1. Isla Mairead
2. Josephine Mary (Josie)
3. Lucy Brooke
4. Maeve Kiera
5. Violet Jane
1. Colin Forde
2. Donovan August
3. James William
4. Pierce Kevin
5. Ronan John
*MN are very interchangeable

I have to say, Isla Mairead is gorgeous! Mairead is in my top 10! And I had a dream once that I had 5 girls. They were called Daisy, Xanthe, Aurora (nn Rory), Elizabeth (nn Bertie), and Lola, which aren’t too bad for my subconscious. But I’d actually use:
1. Pandora Valencia Fae
2. Evanthe Lyra Annabeth
3. Beatrix Clara Elizabeth
4. Rowenna Thalia Winter
5. Morgana Hermione Clio
1. Caspian Sherlock Edmund
2. Phoenix Arthur Blaise
3. Artemus Bartholomew Malik
4. Wolfgang Dorian Edgar
5. Ptolemy Alexander Remus
Those are with no I put from a SO, as he doesn’t exist yet, and probably won’t for a while.

Erm, for girls:
1. Isabelle Aurora Grace “Bella/Issy”
2. Arianne Eleanor Daisy “Ari”
3. Olivia Wren Camille “Liv(y)/Olive”
4. Violet Ophelia Claire
5. Emmeline Poppy Jane, Eleni Charlotte Jane, Catherine Emilia Eve, Charlotte Odilia Jane, OR Lillian Charlotte Eve “Emmy/Leni/Kit/Lottie/Lily” (I’m so indecisive!)
For boys, I’m even less decisive! haha.
1. Caleb Elias Joseph “Cal”
2. Everett Joshua Charles “Ev”
3. Samuel Gaspard John OR Samuel Andreas [Grey] “Sam(my)”
4. Jack August [Cole]
5. Avery Ian George
Although, in all likelihood, I would never have two sons named Everett AND Avery. They’re both huge, huge, huge favorites, but I feel like they’re too close to use together. Avery has much more significance, but I like Everett more on most days. Maybe I’m just making it up, though? That Everett and Avery are too similar?
I’d really like to fit Andreas (and maybe Zane!) in there somewhere, but right now, I don’t know where I’d put them. I’m pretty set on Samuel Gaspard, but I have been tossing around Samuel Andreas lately, too. I do really love Andreas!
Thanks Myosotis! In real life I’m afraid Isla & Violet sound too similar to use though :/
I like Beatrix Clara Elizabeth & Phoenix Arthur Blaise!
Ashthedreamer I love Olivia Wren Camille “Liv(y)/Olive”
& Violet Ophelia Claire and I like all of your boy names except Samuel Gaspard. I think it’s the “Gasp” part that bothers me…I like Samuel Andreas better. I don’t think Everett & Avery are too close to use together, but if you pick one I vote for Everett.

Whenever I add more than one or two names to my list, I go through and save little lists of top 3-5 lime this. So this isn’t too hard. Though it definitely changes pretty fast. Especially middle names…
Acheron James “Ash” (I don’t know if it’s good or bad that I continue to love Acheron despite everyone else thinking it’s weird…)

yellowwatts: those other girl names go great with the three you have and you have a great boy’s list-I hope you get to use some
Rylane46: I like all your boy combos too!
TheWishingStar Madeline Julia, Charlotte Luna, Selena Belle & Lily Athena are all gorgeous!

Inga: I LOVE the flow of Leo Alexander especially next to Ethan Xavier! I love all your girls combos too-can’t choose a favorite!
mrswrathell: I love your consistent, classic list. I wish my style was narrowed down! haha Owen Alexander is my favorite of yours too…hmmm…I really seem to favor anything paired with Alexander!

It will change by the day.
TaraParticipant1 month, 3 weeks ago
Mine change almost daily!
1. Ivy Noelle
2. Savannah Jade
3. Zahli Rose
4. Penelope Grace “P” or “Penny”
5. Cecelia Maeve “Cece”
I’ve gotten some flack for using ‘filler’ middle names, but all of these middle names have family ties! Noelle is after my grandfather, Noel. Jade is a take on my middle name Jean as Jean rhymes with my husband’s surname. Rose is for my mother, Roslyn. Grace is for my great grandmother and Maeve is for my strong Irish heritage.
Boys: (Not including the one I already have, Ezekiel Andrew)
1. Noah Dominic
2. Levi John
3. Bodhi Joseph
4. Flynn Tobias
5. Matteo Blake

I’m glad to hear other people’s change daily! Haha
Twosapphires: Lila Josephine <3333 is perfection
Tara: I feel like my MN choices are fillers too but they are also connections to both living and deceased relatives so that’s way more important to me than the “perfect sound” etc.

yellowwattsParticipant1 month, 3 weeks ago
rylane46–LOVE your girl choices!
lcd1912Participant1 month, 2 weeks ago
marhogjo – I’d love to see Charlotte & Penelope in the same sibset! I really like the combos Henry Isaac (I usually don’t like Isaac!) and Owen Augustus. I like Graeme Oliver too but prefer the spelling Graham. Magnus is too much for me and Ryan Casey are two common surnames which would bother me a little bit.

Okay…this is off the top of my head and not necessarily considering my other half, or all the family names etc that I would normally try to incorporate.
Lucinda June “Lucy”
Antonia May “Nia”
Isidora Faye “Zora”
Mirabel Eva “Belle”
Persephone Hope “Sephy”
Arthur William “Artie”
Xavier Riley “Zavvy”
Maximilian Kai “Max”
Pretty random, but I like them!!
