Sibling set - 3rd boy name!

Hi everyone 👋

We juuuuuust managed to agree on names for our first two boys and have found ourselves pregnant with a third boy 🤣 We are STRUGGLING to come up with a third name so looking for suggestions that go with our other two. They are - Ronan Alexander and Asher James.

We like names that aren't too popular or too unusual, generally pronounced the way they're read and our surname is only one syllable so we have tended to lean towards multi-syllable first names. The option of shortening would be a pro, but for the right name I think we'd be okay with something that's not got a common nickname.

Please hit me up with your suggestions 🙏

Thanks!

Thank you for your reply! I love Elliott, but hubby isn't a fan 😢 Will see what he thinks about Cormac. Sadly Finn doesn't go with our surname.

I love Elliott too…it’s my top choice for baby due July (not sure gender yet)

I have a cousin Cormac and never met another. I think it’s unusual but not too “out there!”

You've hit on quite a few names I like here (though sadly hubby isn't on board with them) - Liam (love but too popular), Elliott, Quinn, Evan (rhymes with our last name, not in a good way 😢) and Felix. I am close to getting hubby across the line with Maxwell which I really like and has a similar feel to the names you've suggested. Torin is also one we've been bouncing around and like a lot. Would love this group's thoughts on Talus? We both like it but worry it's too strange given our other names are relatively well known.

There was a Lorcan in a book I read recently! Can you tell me how this is pronounced - Caolán?

Oh my gosh! I love how good this group is! We have a few close friends with kids names Hugo. Milo and Miles are on my list (Miles especially! Milo brings up the popular Australian drink for me and I haven't decided how I feel about that). Felix, Reuben and Noah were on my list but hubby vetoed 😢

Loooooove Franklin 🥰🥰 (my husband says it reminds him of the turtle?) Definitely some good options in your list we haven't considered, though Franklin is my favourite by far.

The other thing that might help - I like quite a lot of names and hubby is the hard one to please. The ONLY boy name he likes is Levi and I just..... don't love it. It has no clear nickname and lots of other associations - biblical, the jeans ... Any suggestions for names with a similar vibe he might go for?

MythicBish · 24/11/2023 21:30

Also some more 'out there' names that I think suit based on your other names are

Magnus
Stellan
Taron

Does your cousin have a nickname? I'm giving this name some serious consideration!!

I have an Asher and a Casper, but I wouldn't recommend them as a sibset because they sound exactly the same when called, which really annoys them both 🤣
