OPINIONS ON SIBSETS
Isobel and Bella, names too close [as siblings]?
I think they are, since they are variations of the same name.
Arlo and Ezra [as] sibling names; [do they] go [together]?
They both begin and end with vowels, they both have two syllables, and they are both not-quite-unisex-but-not-quite-not-either. This makes them alike enough to go together without being super matchy, and this is a hip brotherly sibset.
Is Lucy a good sibling name for Arabella?
I think it’s an excellent sibling name. Arabella and Lucy sound very elegant together, like something from an 18th century novel.
Are Lachlan and Callum too similar names [as siblings]?
No, I think they make a nice Scottish sibset of popular names. I can only think that their sister will be Isla.
Olivia and Sophia as siblings
They sound almost too pretty together: actually Olivia and Sophia are the sisters in Oliver Goldsmith’s novel The Vicar of Wakefield. In the book, their names are both chosen from romantic novels that their mother is reading.
Reuben and Isaac as a sibset
Great! They are both Old Testament names that are patiently climbing the popularity charts, and go together really well.
Millie and Elsie – sibling names
I’d say this is a perfect match of cute vintage nicknames rising rapidly in popularity. It might be a little hard to add another sister without breaking the pattern or sending the cute factor through the roof though.
Stanley and Evelyn – sibset
I actually love them as siblings – they are both classic English names that are becoming more fashionable, but don’t sound matchy together. There’s just enough of a clash to seem interesting.
Are Lola and Iona too close girl’s names [as siblings]?
I’m not sure whether they are too close, but to me they are a slight mismatch. Iona seems a bit too serious for cute Lola, and I’d probably anticipate something like Ruby or Zoe to match her. However, these unexpected sibsets can be refreshing.
Siblings for Layla (asked more than once)
Sisters: Evie, Grace, Jasmine, Sophie, Willow, Zara
Brothers: Connor, Fabian, Gabriel, Rylan, Samuel, Tighe
Matchy names to go with Poppy
I don’t think you can get any more matchy than other flower names, such as Daisy and Rose. Floral sibsets including Poppy seem quite popular.
Virtue names to go with Wyatt
Sisters: Amity, Blythe, Ever, Faith, Liberty, Temperance
Brothers: Justice, Lucky, Maverick, Pax, True, Zeal
Brother to Violet
Arthur, Caspian, Dexter, Edward, Henry, Sebastian
Names to go with Henry and Barnaby
General advice: I’d steer clear of another name ending in an -ee sound, or you’ll end up with a sibset that sounds like it’s from a cartoon (check nicknames also). For fun, try a four syllable name like Nathaniel or Octavia so that each name increases by one syllable.
Sisters: Alice, Cordelia, Eleanor, Florence, Jemima, Mabel
Brothers: Casper, Felix, Maxwell, Otis, Rupert, Wilfred
Siblings for Jude [using] popular names
Sisters: Abigail, Eden, Hannah, Lily, Piper, Scarlett
Brothers: Ashton, Elijah, Leo, Oliver, Toby, Zac
Biblical and Australian boy names to go with Matilda
If you want a Biblical name which reminds me strongly of Australia, it would be James, after James Cook. And I think Matilda and James do sound nice together.
Siblings to match Edgar
Sisters: Audrey, Beatrice, Cecilia, Daphne, Harriet, Penelope
Brothers: Albert, Charles, Giles, Hugo, Theodore, Vincent
Baby boy name to match Harper, Flynn and William
Angus, Patrick, or Riley.
Sibling names for Clementine
Sisters: Aurelia, Beatrix, Eloise, Genevieve, Isadora, Lucinda
Brothers: Alistair, Hugo, Jasper, Lysander, Miles, Rafe
Sister to go with sibset Robert and Matthew
I’m thinking another sensible classic, like Catherine, Elizabeth, Josephine, Louisa, Sarah or Victoria.
Do you have your own sibling suggestions for any of these, or can you think of something that would be a better match?
