A reader named Juliet writes:
My husband Ralph and I have five children, and I am four months pregnant with our sixth.
We’ve always had a difficult time choosing names, but Ralph and I have always found names that we’ve both loved early on in the pregnancy (agreeing on the name was another story).
This time around, however, it seems like there are no names out there that either of us even like. Can you help us?
Our kids are:
Susannah Blair (she goes by Sunny)
Edward Atticus (we call him Ned)
We’re looking for names that are quirky, light, vintage-y, and that will age well and go with my other children’s.
Wow, a lot of great names there! (In fact, Juliet’s large, well-named family reminded me of Cora’s large, well-named family from a few years ago.)
For #6, here are some boy names that came to mind:
And some girl names:
I focused on first letters that aren’t already in use, only because everyone else seems to have a unique first initial. Not sure if this is something that matters to Juliet or not, though.
Which of the above do you like best with Felix, Olive, Maeve, Susannah and Edward? What other names would you suggest?
