@dannielle89:  Personally I don’t see why the names need to match. We gave long, pretty names to our daughters and a short, masculine name to our son. So I guess my advice is “do what you like best” – your boy and girl names don’t need to match.

@Monny:  +1 can you give an example of what you mean by match? 

If you mean a similar sounding name maybe Adair for Adelaide? And Ross for Rose?  Actually no, I don’t really like Ross but you get what I’m saying.

Adrian Ryan? Not too matching, but the initials are there.

@dannielle89:  Not sure what you mean by matching, but to me Albert Rex and Alfred Randall have elements that are similar to Adelaide Rose.  As for going with the name your husband likes, I like Isaac Sebastian and Isaac Arthur. 

Of these names I listed I really like Albert Rex. Or maybe even Isaac Albert/Albert Isaac. I really just like the name Albert to go with Adelaide because the first part of both Albert and Adelaide are derived from the Old Germanic “adal” meaning noble.

@dannielle89:  I think Isaac works because if you’re going for “matching” you want a boy’s name that was common in the 19th century, like Adelaide. 

Did a quick search for 19th century boys names:

– Hugh

– Biblical names

– Neil

– Jackson

– Wallace

– Blake

– Caleb

– Ethan

– “Names that we might think of as fairly recent favorites were already on the list in the 1880s:CameronCarsonCarterChaseCole and CooperHunter and Haydn, for example. (Further evidence of the 100-year rule.)”

What about Alaric Cove, anothet German “a” first name with a nature inspired middle name.
