Okay so the husband and I have absolutely no idea what to name our next baby. We are not finding out the sex. Although I'm leaning towards having another boy.

Girl's first name we are strongly leaning towards Sierra...but we need a middle. I don't mind the likes of:

Sierra Grace
Sierra Belle
Sierra Jade
Sierra Sloane

Any other first name ideas of middle would be great. I like pretty, outside of top 100 first names (middle not as phased).

Boys. We have in the past liked the following (but they don't feel right after being on the list for our first + a miscarriage)

Archer (too popular now)
Finley (ditto)
Harvey (ditto)
Sullivan (strong contender during MC pregnancy)

Again I prefer easy to spell, outside top 100 (which rules out a lot of the above), slightly masculine names.

I'm happy to go a little obscure, and I like place names/nature names.

The only names we have on our list current are:

Kingston
Knox

Just to give you an idea.

Any help greatly appreciated. Whilst only 12 + 3 I'm really keen to have a few more names to mull over.

Thanks :)

Emmett and Jagger
Emmett and Xander

Really like your girl option of Sierra. I also love Everly for a girl but not sure how you would feel about 2 E names!

Suzy I love Everly. I should have said that Everly was our girl name if Emmett was one. But yeah I'm an English teacher, and as much as I love alliteration, not sure about the two E names.

I don't mind either of those boy options, but worry they are a little too 'trendy' although my other names are similarly so haha

Congratulations on your pregnancy. In my mind, Emmett isn’t a particularly masculine name. (Don’t take that as criticism; I like Emmett a lot.)

Adeline or Alistair would be my suggestions to match.

The first middle name that popped into my head for Sierra was Madeleine :)

For boys:
Campbell
Lawson
Miles
Hudson
would all work well with Emmett

In my mind Emmett is quite old fashioned and traditional, so my first thoughts for siblings are things like Daniel, James, Stephanie, Samantha. But that’s clearly not your style at all!

Sierra Grace is nice. I also love Sienna. Others with a Unusual/naturey theme could be:
Holly
Wren
Daphne
Skye
Daisy
Jasper
Jarrah
Cooper
Caleb

As you dismissed Finley as too common, Finnegan? My almost 2 year old is Finnegan and I've never met or heard of anyone else with this name. I initially wanted Finley but partner wasn't on board and I'm very glad now.

I feel like Knox is quite common these days, what about Lennox as something similar?

I can't get past Everly as a girl's name, only because it was our choice for both pregnancies (both surprises) but we had 2 boys. It was hard to say goodbye to that name forever! I know you're not interested but Emmett and Everly sound lovely together.

nah, can't say I am a fan of Emmett and Everly as sibling names. Too similar for me (but it's not me who's making the choice, I know).
