From baby names that have the same theme, such as Irish names or old fashioned names, to names that start with the same letter, let us help you find the perfect sib-set with our ideas for naming your second (or third or fourth...) baby.

The only things to avoid? Sibling names that sound too similar, for instance Jayda and Jayden or Mia and Mya can get confusing. Oh, and consider pop culture – as you probably don't want to end up with siblings named Bert & Ernie, Brad & Angelina or Will & Kate.

Happy sibling name hunting!

Pick a Baby Name Theme

One fun idea for naming siblings is to pick a theme! This idea works great for sisters, brothers and for a combination of the two. For example, naming both children with word or virtue names is a unique idea. Some of our favorites include:

  • Faith, Hope
  • Serenity, Trinity
  • Grace, Chance
  • Lucky, Felicity
  • Chase, Angel

If you love old-fashioned names, consider the following:

  • Blair, Abigail
  • Delilah, Remington
  • Sebastian, Jack

Flower or nature names are another cute idea for siblings, including:

  • Jasper, Jasmine
  • Hazel, Laurel
  • Violet, Daisy

You can also let the seasons inspire you, by naming siblings names that correspond to the time of year your children are born, including Autumn, Summer and Winter.

Consider the Same Origins

You can choose baby names from the same country of origin, such Irish names, French names, Italian names or Spanish names. For example:

  • Amelie, Vivienne
  • Maxim, Jacques
  • Aidan, Aisling
  • Connor, Siobhan
