A reader named Klaudia is expecting her fourth child, a baby girl, and she’d like some help brainstorming for a first and a middle name. Here’s what Klaudia says:
We like…unusual names. I mean, not names that sound “made-up” but real names. At least, not trendy, popular names.
Juniper was at the top of their list, but then a friend used it, so now they’re back to the drawing board.
A few more details:
- The first name should have 3 syllables.
- The middle name should have 2 syllables and start with an n.
- The surname will be a one-syllable s-name.
- The older siblings are named Kendra Darlene, Carmen Nellie and Matteo Kendell.
I think Juniper paired with an n-name would have sounded nice, so I tried to come up with a lot of name suggestions that also include the letter n:
None of the above are currently in the top 100.
Now middles. It’s tricky to pick a middle if the first isn’t already in place, but here are some possibilities. Names on the left have a stress on the first syllable, names on the right have a stress on the second syllable.
What first names would you suggest for the sibling of Kendra, Carmen and Matteo? What middle names would you pair with those first names?
