'Kooky' brother name needed to go with Phoebe

As it says really, I have decided on Phoebe for my LO but I am thinking ahead to names for a possible brother for her.. What do you think works well?

I am thinking something a little bit unusual in the sense that it isn’t majorly popular right now, but nothing made up, creative spellings and no surname names.

So,

Zachary
Jasper
Sebastian
Rafferty
Noah maybe

That kind of thing..

Please could you suggest some more I cant think!
Thanks

Abraham (nn Abe)
Barnaby
Bartholomew
Digby
Dominic
Gregory
Seamus
Otis

Not sure how many of those fit your criteria, hope that helps a bit!

Phoebe and Noah sounds lovely smile

hehe, thanks. I am really quite liking Wilfred actually! Wilf and Freddie

However, I doubt my partner would agree!
Also quite like Jonathan, tho not unusual, but irrationally detest Jonty so we would have Jonny. My OH is Jim/Jimmy so quite similar... :S I'm not sure I like the whole name Jonathan Shailes as reminds me a bit of a boy I knew in school..

Like Caspar too as alternative to Jasper. Tho OH thinks 'ghost;. There is Casius and Casimer too, but they belong to another lady on here/bc.

I do like Noah Wish it wasnt so popular atm x

Abraham! How cool is that!

Nathaniel (Nate)

Lora69 Thu 16-Dec-10 12:10:49

What could you use for a full name for nn Rory? Like Rory but couldnt use it as we're not celtic! OH doesnt like Reuben..

AllieW Thu 16-Dec-10 12:11:17

You could always go for the name of one of his sons - Shem maybe? (Noah, that is).

sadiesadiemarriedlady Thu 16-Dec-10 12:11:27

Abraham is a great name!

Lora69 Thu 16-Dec-10 12:11:27

Abraham is too religious for OH and I must admit im not a fan! :/

I love Nate tho

DontLetTinselDragOnTheFloor Thu 16-Dec-10 12:12:00

ER.. Gregory maybe? You don't need to be Celtic for Rory unless you use the proper complicated spelling.

DontLetTinselDragOnTheFloor Thu 16-Dec-10 12:13:46

The SmallDragons' names are Scottish, Irish and Welsh (all anglicised versions) but the only one I can possibly justify is Welsh through the in-law side of the family.

Lora69 Thu 16-Dec-10 12:16:42

I lived with a Miles who was a c0ck so not that one!!

Lora69 Thu 16-Dec-10 12:20:43

Whats SmallDragons sorry?!

I also like Alex, Henry and Jacob

Alex is after my grandpa, Henry I just love-its my childhood bear- but v popular atm, and Jacob is real nice too and a variation of hubbys name James

I know these arent kooky though!

Phoebe and Alex
Phoebe and Henry
Phoebe and Jacob
Phoebe and Noah
Phoebe and Wilfred
Phoebe and Jasper
Phoebe and Nathaniel

I love Seth but doesnt go with surname-
Seth Shailes?

LittleYellowTeapot Thu 16-Dec-10 12:36:33
