Baby names

Sibling for Ezra and Malachi

We’re expecting DC3 in September and starting to look at baby names. We won’t be finding out the sex but we’ve always found boys names easier than girl names. Our boys are called Ezra and Malachi which are obviously quite biblical but this wasn’t intentional, we just liked both names and seem to like a lot of biblical boy names. We’ve used our favourite boys names up now and have no clue on girls names. Any ideas?

I think so far the front runners are Phoebe and Jesse

Unless there is personal meaning for you, I wouldn’t necessarily pick another biblical name just to have a theme. Within reason, sibling names don’t need to ‘match’, really you’re naming individuals. It’s not like once Malachi hits high school, someone will wonder why his sister is called Aurora and isn’t that weird because it’s not in the Bible.

I can picture Ezra, Malachi and [Jude or Beau] (Jesse also great!)

and Ezra, Malachi and [Elora or Xanthie]
