Matching sibsets is really important to me-- for example naming any future daughters with a feminine name to go well with Gabriella. But I do like a few unisex girls names so I was wondering what you all thought....

1) Gabriella and Cadence

2) Gabriella and Kennedy

3) Gabriella and Tatum

4) Gabriella and Reese

So wdyt?

I would pair another, more feminine name with Gabriella than those you listed. But, if I had to pick one, I think Reese goes the best with Gabriella. Kennedy would be second.

I used to love Cadence before it became too popular. But I would say either Cadence or Reese, although Gabriella and Reese makes me immediately think of the volleyball player/model Gabrielle Reece.

Although the above are great names, I think Gabriella is a really beautiful name and I honestly don't think any of the above go with it like their not feminine enough

I like Gabriella and Cadence. It's the most feminine one and since you're looking for it to match up with your daughter's name that's what I'd choose. If you weren't looking to match it up I'd say Kennedy

Gabriella and Reece is my favorite. I'm not into 'matchy, matchy' sibsets so they all sound fine to me! Kiddos are individuals and should be named as such IMO.

I personally think that Cadence is a very feminine name so I would immediately pair that one with Gabriella...I actually think that they make a great sibset. My second choice would be Kennedy but it's not preferred. I don't like the others with Gabriella....Gabriella is such a beautiful feminine name and I think it would make the other look even more boyish than it is.

Cadence or Kennedy, I'd say. I think they sound great together.

I'd pick Tatum, the two Tatums I've known have been super girly and real cute!

I would definitely go for a more feminine name with Gabriella.

I think the only one girly enough to be paired with Gabriella is Cadence, and even then, its not quite as girly. The other ones aren't elegant enough.

I have to agree! Gabriella is just a beautiful, classy, and feminine name and I just don't think the ones listed really match it at ALL. If I had to pick a pair, though, I'd go with Gabriella and Reese.

I think Cadence is the only one that could go well with Gabriella, but even that is a slight stretch. The previous posters were right: these names lack the elegance and femininity of Gabriella.

I think all those names are feminine sounding. I love the name Gabriella and do think it is super feminine, but I don't think any of the names you listed would have trouble competing with it.

I like reese but that's it. Gabriella is so elegant it needs to be paired with something as equally pretty, like Savannah, Ava, Cambria etc. Hope that helps!

I think that Gabriella pairs better with a feminine name but out of those I'd pick Cadence

I love the name Gabriella. Do you call her Gabby? Cadence is pretty. Maybe you could nickname her Cady? A friend of mine named her daughter Kaydence guess to be different and calls her Kady I think it's pretty but it's getting to be popular.

Thanks guys! I don't think I would use any of those names, at least for a first name. Just wondered what you thought about my favorite unisex names at the moment. Alicia, we call her Ella, not Gaby.

I like all of the names, but think that Kennedy goes best. Cadence would be a close second.
