Good sibling names for Vanessa?

I have a daughter named Vanessa and I'm expecting a baby. Hubby and I are having issues picking names right now so I thought I'd get some ideas on here. Anyone have any good boy or girl names that would go well with Vanessa?

  • A little bit more info about your naming styles (what names you both like) would be helpful.

  • Well, he likes to keep it simple and doesn't like any "crazy, out there names." He says he likes "normal" names, whatever that means lol. I like to keep it somewhat simple as well but I don't want to use names that I hear CONSTANTLY. I want the baby to have a name that won't be likely to show up 7 times on one class roster, if that makes sense?

  • More "V" names: Violet, Valerie, Victor.

  • Vanessa is a very traditional name, so I would probably pick other traditional names, like Rachel, Emily, Melissa for girls, or Daniel, William, Sean for a boy.

    I like all of the names 3libras suggested as well, and truly.....I think it's pretty wide open.

  • I would take a peak at the top names list for 2011/2012 and make a choice that us on the list under the top 200-500. You can go traditional and still be original! My DS is Carl my DD is Quinn. While Quinn is gaining popularity- it is gaining it as a boys name more so than a girls.

    So for Boys I would say:

  • Vivienne, Virginia, Victoria, if you want to go with the V theme. Or something with three syllables, so you don't have one long name and one short one. Miriam, Jocelyn, Adelyn, Lydia.
