DC3 name help!!

Needing a name for DC3!
We already have Atticus Blue and Josie Pearl

If baby is a girl she will be Magnolia Reign ‘Nola’ which I am in love with
Me and DP can’t decide on a boys name that we both love as much as Atticus so far we have:

Rocket/Rocky (I prefer Rocky but he wants a full name, and we don’t like Rockwell or Rocco)
Skipper ‘Kip’ (Which is my favourite name but we aren’t sure if it’s to out there)
Buzz (will have a full name but it’s a family name that I don't want to disclose)
Soren ‘Ren’

Middle name will most likely be a colour to go with the theme, Blue and Pearl but that’s not set in stone

Is this a joke thread? Those names are awful.

Notellinganyone · 06/03/2023 19:21

Reign? These are all not great. How about Holden, continuing the USA lit theme?

Magnolia Reign is beautiful (great choice!), and I quite like your other 2 children's names too.

Rocket/Rocky - Not keen at all, please no.
Skipper - It's okay?? Always think of the Barbie doll
Buzz - As a nickname, it's fine
Crew - No
Drummer - Absolutely not
Soren - Could get by this actually, Ren is nice

My vote would be Soren for a boy but I'm really sorry that I'm not really keen on any of them!!

Mumofgirls2017 · 06/03/2023 22:05

Could Rocky be a nn for something like Rowan Kai or something else starting with Ro and middle beginning C or K? Rocket is a bit much for me!

Soren is ok but not a fan of the others sorry. I’d suggest… Atticus, Josie and

This has got to be another made up thread. There’s a lot lately all following a similar pattern. All state the first and middle name of each child which are always really ridiculous and outing. I can’t imagine as a mother you would put such identifiable information on somewhere like this. Likely all posted by the same person under different names

Newuser82 · 06/03/2023 22:30

I'm sorry to say but they sound like pirates names 🙈

rattlinbog · 06/03/2023 22:54

Not sure about Magnolia. The most boring paint colour ever

Landndialamrhf · 07/03/2023 01:00

I’m not sure any of them are my taste personally, but if you love it..
How about Soren jett?
ash and roux could work for the middle name too

i don’t think you should call a baby rocket or drummer

what about maverick? That seems to be gaining in popularity

Inkypot · 07/03/2023 01:10

Is Skipper too out there? You have an Atticus so it isn't any more out there really. I think Kip could be cute.

ChildrenOfTheQuorn · 07/03/2023 01:52

I don't believe this for one second.

octoberfarm · 07/03/2023 03:19

If this is real, I am actually begging you not to call your son Rocket, Drummer, Buzz or Skipper. Atticus is great. Kip alone is lovely and Soren (nn Ren) is nice too. Just please not the others. I'm all for unusual names but those really, really wouldn't be fair on him.

Pinkychilla · 07/03/2023 05:32

I like all the names apart from Drummer but I really like Soren 'Ren' the best think it sounds really cool

FishEagleonthelake · 07/03/2023 06:42

Soren is closely related to Latin name Severus, pronounced SEHV-er-AHS, which imo sounds complimentary to Atticus. There's a saint Roch (pronounced like the word rock); Roch is French, whereas in Italian he's called Saint Rocco. So you could just use Roch if you wanted to. I do agree with everyone else. Soren is by far the best of the names on your list.

On another note, why spell your daughter's middle name Reign? Is she going to be a queen of magnolias? Is she to be a faerie with magnolas as her soveriegn abode?

Theoldwoman · 07/03/2023 07:30

Atticus Blue, Josie Pearl and:


Paturday · 07/03/2023 07:35

Reign isn’t a colour is it? I thought that even before I got to the bit about you wanting to continue the theme.

I know a kid called Flash, that might be up your street.

I can’t imagine introducing my kid with most of your list tbh when the other 2 have well known names. What is your family like? Like can you pull of Drummer?

daimtheman · 07/03/2023 07:46

Atticus is a beautiful name, classic and strong but your other boy choices just sound faddy and try hard.

I think something more like Elijah, Milo, Noah fits better than your suggestions.

daimtheman · 07/03/2023 07:50

I really love Magnolia but Reign is awful.

I mean this as kindly as possible but it reads like you have just randomly landed on names in a 'we're so wacky' name book.
