A sister for Jupiter?

We have decided to wait until the twins are born to decide their names as it seems we can't settle on two this time round. We're having b/g twins and have a list of possible names that flow and match each other as well as the other DC.

We both fell in love with Jupiter so it's on the list but cannot find a girl's name that matches (topic wise) or flows. We did love Astra Faye but sounds too close to Ash Tray!

We don't like Juniper, Juno as they're too close in name.

Any ideas?

Do you know, we were just talking at dinner about out favourite planets. Dd said Saturn, dh said Mercury (because he's hot), ds grunted and I said Jupiter.

I have no idea what would go but wanted to say I love Jupiter.

I really like Astra but I fear you;ll get irritated iwth people saying "like the car?"

how about Astrid?
Io is good, or Iona?

We don't want anything to do with Jupiter. We'd like individual names but ties in with the solar system and is a strong yet beautiful name like Jupiter.

We don't make it easy on ourselves! Damn. Haha.

LaBoo - I can imagine it now, "good morning Uranus. It's a bit windy today!"

Bunda - That's another thing that put us off the name.

I do like Astrid but for some reason I picture a girl with glasses and braces like the Katy Perry video...

The roman god Jupiter had a daughter called Minerva, the goddess of wisdom

Love Jupiter btw. My dd1s middle name is astrid. She's my little star child <gets all soppy>

bundaberg Fri 20-Sep-13 19:02:10

WhiteArmedHera Fri 20-Sep-13 19:02:50

Jupiter is outstandingly brilliant, love it

Artemis (my favourite)

Please let us know what you choose!

Calliope, muse of epic poetry, for when she has one of those epic nappies smile

BalloonSlayer Fri 20-Sep-13 19:04:12

Had myself a nice big snoooort at Jupiter but then I had an idea for you:

How about Apollonia

WhiteArmedHera Fri 20-Sep-13 19:04:52

I see Artemis and Minerva have already been mentioned!

Artemis and Jupiter
Jupiter and Artemis

I want B/G twins to call them these names! Will have to get some hamsters or something!!

Diana - Moon. Or Gaia - Earth? (I love that one).

SmallTorch Fri 20-Sep-13 19:06:08

Don't choose a moon of Jupiter- it would sound like she's secondary. And don't have a daughter of Jupiter, that's just creepy.

saintmerryweather Fri 20-Sep-13 19:06:43

i know a girl called Astrid and she is exactly like that. cant actually believe someone suggested Sparkle...
what about Andromeda or Anna for short. cassiopeia? Bianca is apparently a moon. Nova?
