I desperately need your help! My name is Rose, my husbands name is David and our last name sounds like Lucas. I have 2 & 1/2 year old twin girls named Seraphina Lily and Arabella Poppy, and a 9 month - yes, 9 months old!!! - old baby girl named India Violet. We call the girls Sephy, Bella and Indie about 75% of the time. We have a baby boy due on the 7th of October - can you imagine the look on our faces when we fell pregnant not even 3 months after Indie?This baby will definitely be our last!
So anyway, we are having a horrible time trying to name him. I think it's hard because our girls have such unique, gorgeous, princessy, names. For example Seraphina, Arabella, India and John sounds strange (not that I even like the name John). We know that his middle name will either be Henry or James after my father, depending on which sounds better with the first name. I'm also not sure on whether we should choose a name with a nickname as the girls all have nicknames.
A name we loved for India was Emerson "Emmie", as Emerson is David's, mothers maiden name. I know that Emerson is a 'uni-sex' name, but is it masculine enough for a boy? It could possibly be an option. Emerson James Lucas...
Here are a few names we have considered:
Oliver - But I'm not a big fan of the nn Ollie.
Jude - I really like, but I don't know if it fits with the girls names.
Elliot - My husband likes it, but I am worried I would call him 'Elle/Ellie'.
Max - I love Max, but I think it sounds too much like a nn and my husband doesn't love it.
William - We both quite like the nn Liam, but Liam Lucas doesn't sound any good.
So there you have it. Please help us!
Name update: Rose writes:
Sorry I didn't get back with a name update sooner. Unfortunately our sweet baby boy was stillborn on the 30th of September 2011. We named him Emerson James.
We had decided we would wait until he was born to name him, and had the names Theodore 'Theo', Judson 'Judd' and William 'Liam' on our list. However when we saw him we knew he was an Emerson! The twins refer to him as 'baby Em' and love to look at the pictures we have of him.
Thank you for your wonderful suggestions, even though we did not use them.
