We are due with baby #2 on July 3rd. We opted to have the sex be a big suprise at birth so now we are struggling to pick a boy's name and a girl's name. Our son's name is Nikolas (after my brother) James (after my father and grandfater) but we call him Kole. We don't want the kids names to sound too similar or be 'matchy matchy' but to be similar styles.
Boy names we like
Kyle (very very matchy matchy and similar to Kole but hubby likes it)
Allen is hubby and FIL's middle name so we would really like to use that with #2.
Girl names we like
Hubbies mother's name is Gayle Ann, my mother's name is Anne Elizabeth. Both passed away a few years ago so we would love to honor them by using parts of their names.
We are open to more suggestions. My sister will be having identical twins in Sept and since I will be caring for all the kids daily I don't want #2s name to be too similar to any of her picks. She would like to name her twins a combination of Haley, Hannah, Brooke, and Katelyn if they are girls. The boys would be Logan and Hunter.
Our last name starts with a D and sounds like Donkey.
Here are some other possibilities to consider if Nikolas has a little brother:
And if he has a little sister:
