Five-Name Friday: Girl Name for Elijah’s Sister

five name friday, girl name

The ferry docks, and all the passengers immediately get up and flock to the two exits. A few people manage to get off right away, but everyone else — including you and the friendly pregnant lady standing next to you — end up in the bottleneck. Stuck for the time being, the two of you strike up a conversation. She eventually mentions that she’s searching for a baby name, and tells you the gist of what she’s looking for:

What would you name a sister to Elijah, George, and Rose? Please no L, M, or R names.

“Do you have any suggestions?”

You’re a name lover, and you could potentially give her dozens of suggestions on the spot. But you’re both inching closer and closer to the ramp, so you only have time to give her five baby name suggestions before you disembark and part ways.

But here’s the fun part: Instead of blurting out the first five names you come up with (which is what you’d be forced to do in real life) you get to press a magical “pause” button, brainstorm for a bit, and then “unpause” the scenario to offer her the best five names you can think of.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you brainstorm:

  • Be independent. Decide on your five names before looking at anyone else’s five names.
  • Be sincere. Would you honestly suggest these particular baby names out loud to a stranger in public?
  • Five names only! All names beyond the first five in your comment will be either deleted or replaced with nonsense words.

Finally, here’s the request again:

What would you name a sister to Elijah, George, and Rose? Please no L, M, or R names.

Which five baby names are you going to suggest?
