Amelia to Liana
Dahlia, Skye, Lukas and Willow or Bodhi
Jillian & Kendall
How could I forget Lilah ?! It definitely belongs in my top 5, but unfortunately I think there is only room for one seeing as they’re all so similar:
Violet, Isla or Lilah :/
James & Elizabeth
Kalani & Lilah
I could see how Isla & Isabelle might be knocked in a sibset but I still don’t think they are nearly as similar as Isla & Violet. Isla & Isabelle seem similar on paper, but the pronunciation is so different…Isla & Violet, while LOOKING very different have all the same sounds :/
(Big brother Cole)
Thought both were cute I was surprised how much I kind of liked the short, masculine name paired with Charlotte
haha yes!! I used to have a long list and loved every single one. Now I have reservations for some reason or another on EVERY SINGLE ONE. Nothing seems perfect anymore…hope that changes when it comes time to really decide!
My favorite kind
(depending on how daring you are there are beautiful choices out there like: Dearbhla, Roisin, Mairead, Siobhan, Sinead, Saoirse…)
I like it a lot!!
Elijah is my favorite of the three. I would replace Isaiah with Atticus. I agree with ash that Elijah and Isaiah are a little matchy
Noah & Tyler
Bea & Elle
Isabelle & Sophie
Chad & Luke
Aw that’s too funny! I do like that Claire is a little less popular, but I like the flow of Sophia Claire a bit better than Claire Sophia.
1. Don’t think so
2. Def. not., they’re different enough
I like Leo Alexander by far the best with Leo Sebastian as the runner up.
Names I think are similar to suggest:
Isabelle & Sophie
Isla & Lucy
I love Penelope with Charlotte! Penelope Claire or Penelope Wren!!
Kimiha I totally agree with Jace & Kai!

I’d love to see Adelina, Beatrix, Aurelie, Livana & Laerke used.
I really like Elisa, Madeleine/Madelaine, Esmee, Aster, Penelope, Isla, Greer/Grier, Kaia, Emilia, Hazel, Felicity, Poppy, Audrey & Lydia. They don’t seem super exotic (I have met people with all of those names) yet they’re not common by any means.
First combos to come to mind:
Isla Adelina Hazel
Poppy Livana Grier
Esmee Aster Beatrix (love love love Aster & Beatrix together)
Audrey Emilia Laerke
Lydia Aurelie Madeleine
I know you have mentioned wanting to adopt in the future so it’s great you love so many international names that can help connect a child with their culture & heritage. Only time will tell what options make the most sense, but regardless you are going to be so great at picking the PERFECT name for them
I’d love to see some Irish/Gaelic/Celtic names added to your list!?
Michael & Elizabeth
Dexter & Phoenix
My husband has been campaigning for the name Archer for years and I think it’s growing on me! Felicity & Elena are beautiful
