Have posted on here before as me and DH are trying to come up with names for our triplets. Going for a nature theme.
Already have two DD - April and Autumn.


DH really likes Ember, I love Terra, just not sure how well they would go with other names.
Would like general opinions on names, and also which you think would go best together, and any other suggestions.
Thanks everyone.

Love Clover. Sorry but I think that Terra is (sorry) terrible.

BlackholesAndRevelations Wed 30-Oct-13 22:44:10

Gosh not Terra- your dd would be forever known as terror!

April and autumn are completely different times of the year... Does that matter?

From your list I like ivy, sky, Rose or rosa.

Congrats on having triplets too!! smile

nevergoogle Wed 30-Oct-13 22:45:02

Iris, Willow, Amber

BlackholesAndRevelations Wed 30-Oct-13 22:45:46

How about Tara? Not a nature name but similar sound and feel to terra?

CeliaLytton Wed 30-Oct-13 22:46:35

Bearing in mind that your other children have not too 'out there' names, I like Skye, Rosa and Ember. I would be reluctant to call a child Raven, for the same reason I discounted Willow, it is a name which may seem odd on a blue eyed, blonde child. However your genetics may guarantee this wouldn't happen! I really liked Willow but would imagine she would have to be tall, slim and beautiful and my genetics make that almost impossible grin

CountingStars Wed 30-Oct-13 22:47:53

Guess I'll be crossing Terra off our list.
Like Tara, but (Same as with Terra), just not sure how it would fit with the other names?

Isthisstormcomingorwhat Wed 30-Oct-13 22:52:21

I only like Rose, Rosa and Ivy.

What about Iris, Poppy, Amber, Jasmine, Olive, Lily, Holly, Daisy or Violet?

nevergoogle Wed 30-Oct-13 22:54:22

Tara means star, so I would say it is a nature name.

CountingStars Wed 30-Oct-13 22:55:46

Isthisstormcomingorwhat, we considered pretty much all of those. Olive and Violet may end up being added to our short list but for the rest they've been crossed off.

CeliaLytton, Willow to me is a blonde/blue-eyed name, but I can see your point about Raven!

CountingStars Wed 30-Oct-13 22:56:34

nevergoogle, I didn't know that, thank you.

CeliaLytton Wed 30-Oct-13 22:58:53

Yes, I meant that I had discounted Willow because it came with an assumption of a certain appearance. Muddled typing, really should be in bed!

CountingStars Wed 30-Oct-13 22:59:54

Oh I see! Thank you for your opinions.

CeliaLytton Wed 30-Oct-13 23:01:01

Also love Tara and think it would go well

manicinsomniac Wed 30-Oct-13 23:09:43

I like Ember, Skye and Raven from your list.

Honey is cute for a child but not sure an adult could pull it off (though I used to have a friend with a sister called Honey who is now, presumably, a fully functioning adult).

Other ideas:

Asha, Astrid, Rowan, Star, Clementine, Cherry, Winter, Juniper, Coral, Posy, Eden, River

BlackholesAndRevelations Wed 30-Oct-13 23:16:42

Ooh I'm sorry I just saw your other thread and realised you already have daughters named April and autumn! They are lovely names! I just assumed you had two names and were looking for a third.

Glad you like Tara grin I do too. I also like the suggestion someone else gave of calla; I knew it was a lily and have often thought I liked it as a girls name but had never heard it referred to as such! Off to find it on a baby name website!

monkeymamma Thu 31-Oct-13 06:43:12

Eartha (as in Kitt)

monkeymamma Thu 31-Oct-13 07:03:59



Btw I love your theme and choices - especially Raven! Don't think it matters if she isn't dark. In fact, a very blonde Raven would kind of rock!

KateCroydon Thu 31-Oct-13 07:55:47

Any child called Ember will find that everyone assumes it is Amber, so I'd go for that.

wigglesrock Thu 31-Oct-13 07:56:09

I wouldn't go with Ember - it's a bit like dying embers of our love type country & western music.

I quite like the Raine variations, although I really like Reina/Rayna.

Or Rae - a ray of sunshine type idea. Or Neive - Spanish for snow - I may have spelt that incorrectly but you get the idea smile

wigglesrock Thu 31-Oct-13 08:12:00

It's nieve smile

Grumblelion Thu 31-Oct-13 09:12:46

I like Skye & Rosa from your list. How about Raina rather than Rain?

Fearne/Fern, Wren & River nice as suggested above.
Ruby/Poppy ?too popular?

MerryMarigold Thu 31-Oct-13 09:18:32

Do you mean you already have 2 DD called April and Autumn and you're having TRIPLETS on top so looking for 3 more names. (Are the triplets boys or girls?).

Or, are you expecting girl triplets and looking for a single name to go with April and Autumn? (Personally wouldn't go for the same initial if I were you).

Luz (light in Spanish)
Rae is brilliant
Aurora is gorgeous
Woody - Love this, for a boy

CountingStars Thu 31-Oct-13 10:01:42

Morning everyone,

manicinsomniac, yes wasn't too sure about Honey, like Posy and Celmentine but DH thinks that is too baby-ish.

BlackholesAndRevelations , It's okay, probably should have made that clearer, just assumed people would have seen my other threads! I have a friend called Calla, so can't really use that.

monkeymamma , thank you! I quite like Eve and Hazel.

KateCroydon, don't like the name Amber as much, but mostly just don't want to do another A name.

wigglesrock , thank you, that gives me the idea to check out the seasons in other languages!

Grumblelion, I like Saffron, but DH doesn't. Neither of us particularly like any of the others, but thank you for your suggestions.

MerryMarigold, sorry have been assuming people have seen my other threads. I have have two daughters, April and Autumn, and I am pregnant with triplets, I think I said in the title, but they'e girls.

CountingStars Thu 31-Oct-13 17:56:46

Would appreciate some more replies.

MerryMarigold Thu 31-Oct-13 21:45:07

Oh, Clementine is lovely and not at all babyish.

Wow, congrats on the triplets. How far are you?

Skye is a bit 'been there, done that' I think even though it does go nicely with other names. I think the others are a lot more unusual.

How about Tierra? It's a bit less like 'terrible' than Terra.

Hazel is very nice.

I know a Barley (girl), which I like.


Dawn (It's such a lovely word and due a revival)

I personally really like Ember, to me it is a bright spark, but I think you'd have to have very dark eyed girls with shiny eyes that light up a room (like my dd! That name would so suit her). Not so keen on Terra - sorry.

CountingStars Thu 31-Oct-13 22:35:36

I do like Clementine, I just can't picture it on anyone older than about 12. But I guess everyone has their own opinion on names! I am due in December/January.

Our dog is called Barley, so I like the name, but, you can see why we can't really use it!

I think Hazel and Eve are our top two right now.

Do you think two E names would be pushing it?

Retroformica Fri 01-Nov-13 06:54:30

Ember, Skye and Luna

Aurora, Stella and Fleur

takeitonthegin Fri 01-Nov-13 10:15:52

Some of the names suggested are so unusual and beautiful.

I think Laurel and Sienna are very pretty and a bit autumnal.

Congratulations smile

Well, Holly, Robyn and Stella or Eva would be nature + festive season but perhaps you like a bit more unusual.

I know a grown up Clementine- very timeless name. With Nicolette and Seraphina?

Good luck!

I think Aurora, Luna and Tara go really well together. Of your original list Ivy, Raine and Raven are my favourites but Raine and Raven might be too similar.

CountingStars Fri 01-Nov-13 12:13:16

What are the meanings of Laurel and Sienna? Thank you.

HuglessDouglas, I really like Raine/Raven and Eve/Ember, but I know I shouldn't pick more than one of the same letter, so hard!

MortifiedAnyFuckerAdams Fri 01-Nov-13 12:14:49

Ember, Olive and Fearne

ohmymimi Fri 01-Nov-13 12:33:13

Sorrell, Baye, Tansy.

onelittlepiglet Fri 01-Nov-13 12:48:05

How about:

Seren (means star in welsh)
Aurora (meaning dawn)

I think you could get away with Eve and Ember better than Raine/Raven because they don't end with the same sound smile

takeitonthegin Fri 01-Nov-13 16:57:57

op Sienna is Italian and describes an orangey brown colour.

Laurel means The Bay (latin) but there is also a laurel plant.

CountingStars Fri 01-Nov-13 17:44:43

Thank you takeitonthegin.

Sorry to be slightly facetious but if these are your last children how about Xanthe, Yasmin and Zinnia?

MerryMarigold Sat 02-Nov-13 09:31:27

I think if you have 2 A's already, I don't see why 2 E's are a problem. However, I don't see 'Eve' as going so well with the other names. You may just need a bank of names and hand them out when born. I spent a week naming my twins as I went off my pre-planned names a week before they were born. My boy ended up with a name I had never considered, and I love it. He was in Special Care for a week and was just called 'Twin 2', bless him!

Laurel is GORGEOUS (as in the tree).

MerryMarigold Sat 02-Nov-13 09:32:37

Oh, have to say I really hate Raven. It sounds a bit evil and spooky to me. Ravens are not nice.

1805 Sat 02-Nov-13 19:29:56

April, Autumn, Ivy, Skye, and Willow.

Ihatepeas Sat 02-Nov-13 19:39:16

I love love love 1805s suggestion!!! Totally gorgeous!

mewmeow Sat 02-Nov-13 20:06:32

Raine, Niamh (pronounced 'neve') as someone has already suggested & Megan ? I think they sound nice together, other nice names that are a bit unusual/ Celtic sounding Tamsin, Tegan, Zara, Tamara, Damaris.

imofftolisdoonvarna Sat 02-Nov-13 21:14:36

Oooh, I like Raine.

Also from other suggestions on this thread I like Laurel, Stella, Fearne and Seren.

Really don't like Raven (as Merry said, Ravens are not nice!) or Terra (terror!)

Congratulations on your triplets.

MerryMarigold Mon 04-Nov-13 11:00:57

April, Autumn, Ivy, Laurel and Ember

pickledsiblings Mon 04-Nov-13 11:16:33

I met a lady called Rosina the other day, it's a lovely name I think and would go well with Hazel and Eve.
