    Default Feedback or new suggestions for our short list please

    Bub #3 is due in 5 weeks and we have a short list for both boy and girl names but are open for suggestions of names that are along a similar style/taste etc. We already have a ds and a dd both have uncommon but not totally 'out there' names (similar kind of style names as our below short list)

    Boys

    Atticus
    Lawson
    Archer

    Girls

    Violet
    Jade

    pretty much just down to these 2 although prefer Violet but unsure of a middle name to suit. Both our other children have family middle names but we have no other family whose names we would like to honour or that even sound nice with these names Was thinking Rose for a middle name (there is some loose family connections with that name) but not sure if Violet Rose is too much colour/flower name in one go. Also thought, Violet Jade but then initials would be VJ (not sure if i'm looking into that too much, but wouldn't want them to be teased about their initials)

    Thanks for your thoughts/ideas!

    I like all your boys name but my favorite is Atticus. I prefer Violet of your girls names. They're both nice though I'm not a huge fan of two flowers names.

    Violet Louise
    Violet Ruth
    Violet Anne
    Violet Lucy
    Violet Amy
    Violet Chloe

    I am probably not thinking but what would be the problem with VJ?

    Tbh I've never really heard of anyone being referred to by their first and second initial - and Violet Jade is a beautiful name... Unless your surname starts with J

    VJJ would be HORRIBLE initials to give to a little girl!!

    Angus
    Seth
    Elias

    To go with Violet I think Jade is pretty. I wouldn't worry about the initials.

    Wow, really? Not trying to be awful, but I would strongly recommend the OP re-think this one... I know quite a few people who are referred to by their initials ...violet Jade, does sound nice....but to give those initials to a girl? ...no, not ok. Sorry OP.
