What should we name our children?

  • Hi,
    I've been looking all over the internet for sites where real moms give name advice. We're kind of lost at the moment and it's better to do something useful with my insomnia.

    We're expecting our first and last 3 babies in May. Generally speaking we do not like matchy or theme names for siblings and we want our triplets to have distinctive names. We're pretty much set on the baby girls' name (AKA baby B): Elisa Jane. But we're having a very hard time with babies A and C who are boys. I like Jonas Samuel and Lucas Efrain but as you can see, both names end in 'as'. Other names that my husband and I like are the same: Tobias, Tomas, Mattias. Those are our top boy names and they are so similar! So here's my question(s):

    Are Jonas and Lucas too close for comfort? does it sound corny to you?
    Will Elisa feel left out if we give her brothers rhyming names?
    We have other names that we like slightly less: Manuel, Felix and Julian. Should we go for one of these so the boys' names are different?

    Wow, I'm terribly sorry about this rant. Any ideas or thoughts will be very appreciated.

  • I like all 3 names together, even with the boys names ending in the same letter they are different, and your littl girl name ends in an SA so it still has S sound to the end of it.
    My :cents: is to stick with what you have

  • I LOVE the 3 names you have picked out! I'd say stick with what you have picked out and go for it! I'm sure "baby B" will not feel bad or left out because her name doesn't rhyme with her brothers unless she is told that's how she should feel ya know?

  • Wow- we had a really hard time picking a boy and girl name, let alone 3! I love the names and agree that it doesn't matter if they sound the same. Congrats on your three blessings!
