A twin for Jasper?

We don't know the sexes but I'm trying to come up with B/G and B/B names. We already have 3 DD's.

We both really like Jasper for 1 boy. Our surname makes things tricky as it's 1 syllable and begins and ends in 'S'.

Girls names we like are -
Ivy
Sylvie
Effie
Marnie
Kitty
Cecily (Too many 'S' sounds?)

Boys -
Rupert (Ruben in the family, too similar?)
Henry
Rex (Clashes terribly with surname sad)

Any other suggestions are most welcome!

I like Cecily and Rex but not with a S surname (sorry). Don't think Rupert is too similar to Ruben.

Casper, sorry no help but couldn't resist.

Thank you @minipie

Typically Cecily and Rex are my favourites but they just don't go at all with the surname sad

I think Jasper and Amelie sound lovely together.
Or Jasper and Rufus

I'm just intrigued by your surname! 1 syllable, starts and ends in S and rhymes with Rex??

SupermarketSally Thu 05-Oct-17 12:01:33

@RebeccaWithTheGoodHair it doesn't rhyme with Rex just clashes, when you say together you have to pause. Think along to lines of Spears (it's not Spears).

I'm quite annoyed as otherwise Rex would of been a definite!

SupermarketSally Thu 05-Oct-17 12:02:23

@lovelyjubilly I really like Amelie but it is very similar to my own name and we already have one in the family

Some lovely names there OP.

My favourite are Jasper and Sylvie and Jasper and Marnie.

OP- my DS is a Rex and I ADORE Jasper but DS wouldn't allow it as he had a horrible colleague by that name.
So similar taste it seems?!

Other boys names I love are:

Zach(ary)
Dylan
Conrad
Finn
Flynn
Spencer
Luca
Laurence

RebeccaWithTheGoodHair Thu 05-Oct-17 14:01:16

OP grin thank you and sorry for being nosy!!

Out of your list I love Sylvie, the name is beautiful and I adore alliterative first/second names.

Rex is also my favourite boy's name from your list - sorry!!

Love Rex off your list too.

SupermarketSally Thu 05-Oct-17 14:52:44

I've just had a sneaky Facebook search of the name Rex with our surname and people do have that name!

Maybe I can use it, hmmm...

sundowners Thu 05-Oct-17 15:00:40

Jasper and Rex are 2 of the most awesome boys names out there and go so well together. Even when I've sometimes thought "oh!" when hearing a first name and surname that might jar a bit/start with same letter etc, one heard a few times I think nothing more of it.

Its the 1st name you here every day, all the time, not both together.

WildRosesGrow Thu 05-Oct-17 15:07:01

Jasper is a gemstone, so you could consider some other gem names:

Ruby
Sapphire
Amethyst
Opal
Jade
Amber
Jett

Or just some names I thought sounded nice with Jasper:
Erin
Corinne
Emily
Jake
Helen

Roman goes well with Jaspar and my current fave girls name is Xanthe. Twin girls, Xanthe and Heather
