Siblings for Phoebe?

DD1 is Phoebe Helena. It's still early days but this is about the only fun bit of the first trimester. I'm living abroad in an expat community of about 10 kids so not much inspiration for names out here.

I like the sound and 'heritage' of names such as Cleo and Hermione if it's a girl - but don't want to sound like I'm obsessed with the Greeks... I'm quite conservative with boys - I like William and Laurence.

Any suggestions along these lines?

I love Greek names for girls - I have a Persephone. I really like Hermione and Cleo too.

Alexander/Alexandra, Chloe, Cassandra, Iris, Penelope are all names with Greek origins that are considered "normal" enough that people probabky wouldn't immediately think "wow, she sure likes the ancient Greeks!"

Other names in the same theme I like are Ariadne, Antigone (DH won't let me have this), Artemis, Atlas, Leander, Callisto, and Phaedra.

Martha is nice with Phoebe.

Hermione is lovely and goes well with Phoebe.
How about Quentin, George or Edward? Laurence is the female form of Laurent so I would use Lawrence if you like that name.

Phoebe and Hermione or Cleo go well together. Or how about Clara?

For boys I like William, Quentin or how about Alexander?

Thanks, ladies. I'm loving Hermione and Calista at the moment - still undecided about boys but I have months. I can already hear DH spluttering if I suggested Atlas or Leander smile...

Thanks! I just had a horrible moment and realised that Cally would go really, really badly with our surname - Grant... Liking all the suggestions

My Phoebe has sisters called Eloisa & Aoife & a brother called Conrad.
