Sibling for Henry — The Bump
Baby Names

Sibling for Henry

My 10-month old is Henry Sarkis (FN after my grandfather, MN after my Armenian FIL). We are due in March with #2 and are already having an awful time trying to agree on names.

DH wants to use either Joseph or Walter for a MN if it's another boy, although I'm against using more family names. I tend to lean towards more classic names, with current favorites for boys being Oliver, Sebastian, Benjamin, Theodore, and Samuel.

If DS had been a girl, we would've gone with Charlotte Emilia. While we still love Charlotte, DH isn't particularly sold on that name anymore. I have a bit of a wider range when it comes to girls' names, and am currently loving Aurora, Felicity, Vivienne, Athena, Penelope, and Arabella.

I need fresh thoughts. Any suggestions on pairings or even brand new name ideas that we might love?

    We have a Henry, and other names we've considered:
    James, William, George, Charles, Stuart, Frederick, Benedict, Andrew, Francis, and Alfred for a boy. (We only have boys so far, so much bigger list.)

    Lucy, Matilda, Marigold, Violet, Margaret, and Rosalind for a girl.

  • I'm only 8.5 weeks pregnant with Baby #1, but when my DH and I started ttc a year ago, we settled on Henry if it was a boy and Julia if it was a girl. A year later we still love both those names and plan to use them as a sibset if our "one boy one girl" plan works out.
