Sibling for Reese? — The Bump
Baby Names

Sibling for Reese?

My DD is Reese Madeline. It's still too early to know what we are having but it was extremely difficult picking her name so I want to start early. I thought I liked Ellis Irene for a girl but I'm unsure. The only name DH has even slightly liked for a girl is Scarlett. I'm stuck on Easton or Knox for a boy. Help!! What names go with Reese? Any suggestions welcome! 

Me (33). DH (37). DD (2.2012). MCs x4. After 4 years & 7 months, due 4.2018!

    Sorry, but Scarlett is a very nice name, Ellis is terrible for a girl.  

    I dislike Knox (like the gelatin?) Or Easton (baseball).

  • I don't really like Ellis for a girl, and honestly Ellie names are so on trend right now so it's not even creative. 

    Suggest

    Quinn 
    Brynn
    Paige
    Jocelyn
    Irene as a first name.

    I do really like Quinn. Paige is our niece's name - it's a great name. The issue I have with Ellis is I would never want her called Ellie, so that's definitely a consideration. 

    @3rescuepups I do like Scarlett, just didn't feel like it fit with Reese.

  • I find Scarlett a big frilly and dramatic next to Reese. 

    I would probably go with another masculine name or at least non frilly. Ellis is very masculine and the potential of Ellie is sooo exhausted


    Arden
    Sloane
    Harper
    Bridget
    Eden
    Taylor
    Wren
    Adele
    Blair


  • @bbiutmcph I agree. I feel like another semi unisex or not too girly name would pair well with Reese. I really don't want an Ellie. I do love Sloane, that one is on my list but DH isn't a fan.

    Thank you for the ideas, ladies! :)

  • Love Arden, Wren and Sloane with Reese.

    Like pps I am not fond of Scarlett or Ellis with Reese. Both Easton and Knox are very much NMS.

    Suggestions:
    Juno
    Maeve
    Tess
    Willa
    Nova

    Gavin
    Leo
    Miles
    Declan (although a bit close to Deacon, the name of Reese Witherspoon's son. Don't know if you'd consider that too themey)

  • I agree another one-syllable, unisex name would work best if you have another girl-- and I'd pick a multi syllable mn that is more traditionally feminine. 

    Quinn 
    Drew 
    Brooke 
    Greer 
    Kyle 
    Vale
    Lane
     
    As for boys, I'd suggest choosing a solid, traditional boys name. When you go with a unisex name for your girl, you don't want to do the same thing for your boy (too confusing). Go strong & traditional:

    Robert
    Thomas
    William
    George
    Henry
    John
    Michael
    Matthew
    James
    Benjamin
    Andrew
    Christopher
    Daniel




  • I agree that Ellis isn't a good idea for a girl.  I think that Reese and Scarlett would work fine as a sibset.   Some other ideas for you:

    For a girl:
    Hadley
    Maxine
    Morgan
    Yvonne

    For a boy:
    Connor
    Wesley
