I know some people are really into sibsets and while I think it can be nice I also think sometimes it's too extreme/matchy and totally silly to pass on a name you love if the only reason is because it doesn't "go" with the other names. It's most likely that your children will not be living with each other for their entire lives anyway.
Completely agree. My brothers both had super normal names (daniel and anthony) and my parents decided to name me Nicia (nee-cha)...super off the wall name but the fact my brothers hat normal names was never an issue. I personally don't understand why people try to pick names that go with the siblings names

Yeah, I have a slightly more unusual name than my brother, which I think when I was a child was much more unusual, not so much these days. My brother has a common name - David, mine is Amber.
This little one’s name will be Castiel, a variant of the angel Cassiel, who is said to look after those in need (if I’m remembering correctly!)

My boys are Leo (It was unusual when we picked it), Wyatt, Owen and Milo.

We are currently TTC and love Rocco and Cassius. Not even looking at girls names after 4 boys I'd be so shocked if we ever have a girl.

Both my husband and I have the same naming style, we both like unusual but not strange names. If I let him, he would have named our daughter Persephone or Artemis (both of which I like just fine, but I felt they were too ostentatious for a little baby girl).

Our daughter is Nova and we love how itís familiar but not too common. Itís apparently growing in popularity, it was in the top 300 when we named her and now itís in the top 100.

With this baby, we are thinking Flynn or Orion...leaning more toward Flynn if itís a boy. If itís a girl weíre thinking Juno or Lyra.

Glad Iíve found this thread!
Both me and my hubby like unusual names but at the min itís not proving easy!

He wants Bjorn, Ragnor or Thor 😑

Were as I want Hunter.
We settled for Hunter in the end but now the name Roman has popped up and I love it!

My nephews name is Thor and it fits him so perfectly! Heís this adorable blonde boy, confident and funny. When they first announced his name everyone was like ďuh......o...k....Ē But now itís just so perfect. I canít think of him having any other name.

Unusual names are like that...the child really does grow into them.

^^ couldn’t agree more!

Mrnmrsm, they’re all fabulous names, I have heard the first three (TV shows?), however out of them all my own preference is Roman. I don’t know why, perhaps it’s because I enjoyed learning about the Romans in school lol but it’s lovely, they all are, so whatever you decide will be perfect. Perhaps wait till LO arrives and see which fits then instead? Or, if you’re having middle names see which go more with those, or if not perhaps you could use whatever names you don’t use as middles names instead? That way you get a little of all
