DH and I are preparing to TTC (already NTNP) and talk baby all day.
We will not find out the gender, so want two names we both really love for a boy and a girl. We have had our girls name picked for 2 years “Adelaide Rose” and want a boys name that will match that.
DH loves the name Isaac, I think it’s nice too but not in love with it. I like uncommon names but not trendy or too unique.

@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.

What do you mean by 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: A girl i went to high school with just named her daughter Adelaide. I have never heard of it until then. Cute.

@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:
– Biblical names
– “Names that we might think of as fairly recent favorites were already on the list in the 1880s:Cameron, Carson, Carter, Chase, Cole and Cooper, Hunter 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.

Sorry, it was late and I was tired!
By match, I meant that I didn’t want a really modern or trendy boy name with such a classic and traditional girls name. One of the boys names we liked was Phoenix but DH and I think it’s too different
