Mexican beer? Campbell? Not great associations for me but it must mean something entirely different (and positive) to you

Although you've got the animal and the vegetable, perhaps you should go for a mineral name...

hard to give you symbolic names without knowing you....

FWIW I quite like Sol (LOVE the beer!)

unless you continue the L theme
am sure there are many more lovely Lsss

Have you tried looking in a dictionary, or a gardening book or a book about stones? Might give you some inspiration....

I was suggesting Jasper! Did somebody beat me to it? I put the question mark in because it's different in style to short L names Leo/Lily

How have you gone down the route of giving your children "clearly symbolic middle names" when you gave your DS1 one purely because you liked it and it went with his first name??

Every name is symbolic, no? Every name has its origins and therfore symbolises either a place, a concept, a trade, a flower, an animal etc. Take DP's name for example. Christopher. It means 'Christ within' or 'someone who carries Christ'. Oliver symbolises Olives. Stephen means 'crown garland', Janus means 'Gateway' so whatever name you choose it will symbolise something.

DD and DS1 have your middle names as first names. DS2 was called Felix which I am told means "happy".

If we ever have another boy I am very keen on jasper....
