Isla (my 1st daughter) and Hamish have always been my definites when it comes to sibsets.  
Although we plan to have three and i just can't find a name for possible no. 3 that sticks. The two that have probably stuck in my head the longest have been either Laurel or Indigo (girl).
Others include:


Thoughts? Advice? Names that aren't on the list that would go with Isla & Hamish.
I want a complete sibset that flows and sounds great together.

I do love Neve, but a friend of mine loved this name first..i couldn't take it even though it would make the most perfect sibset!

Indigo- lovely, but not with Isla. I'd avoid a second I first name.
Laurel- ok, but I don't think it's as pretty as Isla
Isabella- ditto Indigo
Caroline- ditto Laurel
Nelle- dislike, and I'd be beyond disappointed if I was lumped with Nelle and my sister got Isla
Alessia- ok
Anya- ditto Laurel and Caroline, I also think this sounds too rhymey or something with Isla
Vienna- lovely
Ava- lovely

Niall- dislike
Reid- ok
Owen- nice

Vienna, Ava and Owen are probably the only ones there that I'd even consider with Isla and Hamish as first names. I'd go for Vienna over Ava though.

Definitely Duncan! Such a lovely Scottish theme you've got, would be a shame to break the trend. Angus fits nicely, too. Fiona?


Posted 27 January 2013 - 02:22 PM

I wouldn't go with another I name.

I like Alessia from your list, but not with Isla.

Owen is ok from your boys list..

Some I would use would be:

Isla, Hamish and:

Isla and Hamish is such a quintessential Scottish sibset that I think you have to go Scottish for the third.

Niall is good but maybe a bit close to Isla. Reid fits the Scottish bill but there are better ones for the sibset I think.  None of the others fit the Scottish bill.   Isobel would but again maybe something else with Isla.

For girls;

Genevieve, Adelaide, Abigail, Emma and Elise

For boys;

Hugh! Hugo, Liam, Cameron, Rhys and Callum.

I'm not sure if my list is particularly Scottish though! Good luck with baby #3!
