    Default Names to go with a sibling name.

    Hi Ladies,
    I have a two yr old named Cooper James, if we have a girl we were thinking Evelyn Kate (Evie for a nickname)
    My partner likes the name Henley for a boy but I would prefer Hadley. If we have a boy his middle name would be William.

    Do you think those names would sound alright with Cooper as a brother.
    Also what do you think about our boy names. I'm just curious, at the end of the day it's up to us. But I'd like opinions 😊 help please xx

    I think Henley flows better with Cooper then Hadley.
    The girl's name's you've chosen (especially the nickname Evie) is lovely, great choices! 😊

    I also like Hayden. Hadley in preference to Henley. I don't really see any preference for the name to go with Cooper. I do like your girls names, Evie is a nice nickname. marie.

    I prefer Hadley over Henley because Henley to me sounds like a child trying to say Henry (sorry!).

    I like Evie but Evelyn is quite traditional and old fashioned but Cooper is not so for me they don't go together in style and clash a little bit. The name on its own is beautiful but the style is very different which isn't necessarily a bad thing just unusual.

    I think Hadley goes better with Cooper but I also think Hadley is a nicer name.

    Evelyn/Evie is gorgeous. Hadley is ok but reminds me of the footy commentator Ray Hadley. Henley is also nice but I wonder of people would hear you wrong and think it's Henry?
    Other nice H names that would suit
    - Harley
    - Harvey
    - Harrison

    I've only every heard Hadley as a girls name, so I would choose Henley on that basis.

    This. Though I also think Hadley would likely get mistaken for a girl. Sorry.

    I really like Evelyn!
