A reader named Courteney is expecting her third baby and needs help with a name:
I love male names–really surnames for both male and female. I don’t like traditional but then again I don’t want it to SCREAM like we are trying to be different. Our other two girls are named Cadien and Killian. The middle name will be Wade no matter the sex.
This is a tricky one. Courteney’s daughters have very similar names…so should she stick to the pattern, or go with something entirely different?
I don’t know the answer, so I came up with two groups of suggestions. Names in the first group resemble Cadien and Killian:
Names in the second group are similar to Cadien and Killian in terms of style, but not (as much) in terms of sound:
Any of the above sound particularly good next to Cadien and Killian (and in front of Wade)? What other names can you think of?
*I heard from Courteney not long after I posted this…turns out Kennedy is already in use as Cadien’s middle name.
