Boy
Gideon
Flynn
Esteban
William
Calyx
Oswald
Simeon


Girl
Edith
Audra or Audrey
Isolde
Oswin
Teal
Violet
Clementine or Calliope

Last name starts with A, two syllables. Sister to Llewelyn (nn Louise) Cate.

I am sorry OP I am not fond of any from your boys. I only like Edith from the girls. Audrey is ok too. I liked it more a few years ago before it became trendy again.

From boys list I like

Flynn
William
(I don't mind Esteban but wouldn't put it with sister Llewelyn as seems too different culturally to me)

girls

Edith
Clementine
(also like Calliope and Isolde but again to me don't feel right with Llewelyn)

Flynn rhymes with Llewelyn so I would avoid that. Calyx is kind of cool but my first impression would be that Calyx is your daughter and Llewelyn is your son.

I like Audrey, Violet, William and Edith.

Isolde

With Llewelyn:

Gideon
Oswald
Simeon


Girl
Isolde
Clementine or Calliope


I don't love these names but they're the best ones with Llewelyn for me.

My favorites are William and Violet

Calyx sounds VERY similar to "Caelyx" which is a drug for breast and ovarian cancer as far as I know..

I tend to agree, however go with Clementine before Calliope.

Just out of curiosity, can I ask why you gave your daughter the boy's name Llewelyn, yet call her Louise? Was Llewelyn a family name you just had to use?
