Opinions please on these names for brother and sister?

Haha Vamosbebe

We're the same, our little girl is going to be Isabelle, NOT Izzy, NOT Bella. If anything Belle for short. But yes Isabelle!

I love Honor. Very pretty girls name.

Both lovely names [biased as I have an Oscar!] not sure they go together.

Our girl's shortlist was:
Isabelle (the whole name, not fucking Bella!)

Feel free to mock!!!

The only Honor I know is a teen and lovely, but has complained in recent years of boys making jokes about wanting to 'get on 'er'. It seems to have diminished some of her positive feelings about her name. sad

Wow burcham similar taste to your friends or family! Thanks for that!

I know someone whose two children have these names, so to them they work fine. I agree!

BikeRunSki Sat 08-Dec-12 19:24:47

I think they are too similar for siblings.

Dynababy Sat 08-Dec-12 19:21:43

Love Lucy and Pearl! Thanks!

MissCellania Sat 08-Dec-12 19:18:21

In my accent anyway they are very similar, and don't work at all.

Love Honor, would be on my list if OH ever lets me have another baby.


Greythorne Sat 08-Dec-12 19:12:46

Way too similar sounding for my taste.

Bicnod Sat 08-Dec-12 19:00:19

I have an Oscar and Lucy was top of my girl list for DC2 (who turned out to be a James)

Honor is foul.

FellatioNelson Sat 08-Dec-12 18:07:26

Honor is really lovely but I do think it's a bit to similar to Oscar for comfort. Although I know an Emily/Melanie and a Tanya/Tara and an Owen/Ewan and they all seem to get by just fine.

Dynababy Sat 08-Dec-12 18:03:48

Any other suggestions that go with Oscar if they are a bit close?

NagooHoHoHo Sat 08-Dec-12 12:02:01

I think they are a little bit too 'close' sounding for me, but lovely names.

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 08-Dec-12 11:52:57

They sound really good together.

Love Honor especially but it sounds like a command paired with my DP's surname so can never use it sad

Dynababy Sat 08-Dec-12 11:46:55

Yes I have Oscar already

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 08-Dec-12 11:36:51

Oni means happiness in Finnish!

tiredteddy Sat 08-Dec-12 11:35:44

I know an Honor, she is great. She is known as Oni!

cuillereasoupe Sat 08-Dec-12 11:33:18

Reminds me of that old rhyme "She offered her honour, and he honoured her offer, and it was offer and honour all night".

forgetmenots Sat 08-Dec-12 10:59:17

Love Honor. Do you have an Oscar already? They sound similar but not too similar, nice for a brother and sister.

baskingseals Sat 08-Dec-12 10:57:41

absolutely love Honor.

dashoflime Sat 08-Dec-12 10:55:27

Really like Honor
