Names that go with Graham and Laura.

Ok, so I have a niece and a nephew called Laura and Graham. Currently my sister is pregnant (again!) with twins, one is a boy and one is a girl. Now, in my mind I don't believe the names Laura and Graham match all that well together as it stands. I don't know what it is about them but there just doesn't seem to be a ring to it.

Anyway, she's completely clueless for names and so I'm looking to MN for some good ol' motherly advice.

I'll give you all some perspective into her current tastes. She seems to find it easier coming up with male names for some reason, she struggled with Laura when she had her too. Nothing seemed to fit for her. grin

Boys:
Casper
Charlie
Edward
Harry
James
Jasper
Noah
Oliver
Reuben

Girls:
Aubrey
Imogen
Matilda

Now, she's completely open to suggestion so don't think you're limited to the names above. Thank you all! smile

There's an author called Laurie Graham; it's your sister's business what she calls her children but maybe that combo sounds better?! grin

Anyway suggestions for next DTwins, maybe there is an 80s vibe:

Jessica
Ellen
Alison

Andrew
Joseph
David

The names she picked for her first set of twins just seem leagues away from the names you've given she's considering this time iyswim.

More in line with her 2nd time suggestions:

Freya
Rose
Martha

Lucas
Theo
Rory

I love Reuben and Audrey from the suggestions. But your sister has to love the names, not us! And she may have different tastes to us, so I think you need to help her find names that SHE loves.

<leaps onto bandwagon next to Perks>

Reuben is a nice name but I didn't think that went especially well with Graham but of course, if your sister loves it that's her choice wink

Just to clarify, she has asked me to compile a list of names for her to choose from and as she wanted a variety I decided to come and ask MN. Otherwise she would just get 1 person's name taste; mine! grin

I feel Laura is far more versatile to work with, though this could just be my personal opinion.

My sister is loving Freya as suggested by DonkeysDontRideBicycles and has added it to her maybe list. smile

If your sister liked boys named why not give a girl a boyish name?

Georgina, Georgia and georgiana can all be shortened to George.

Charlotte can be Charlie

Isn't Aubrey a boys name?

Leorapoy Tue 05-Feb-13 00:02:13

As far as I'm aware Aubrey can be both. I used to know a female Aubrey and the only male one I know is Aubrey Beardsley. grin
