Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. I'm expecting triplets with my husband, and we're a little overwhelmed with the prospect!

I'd love some feedback on names! Our style is very classic, but we prefer beautiful classic names that are slightly less common.


Girl Names:
Helena, Evelyn, Violet, Willow, Anna, Nora, Lydia, Olivia, Caroline, Amelia, Adele, Adeline, Marietta, Ella, Miriam, Iris, Camilla, Alice, Elizabeth (Libbie), Clara

Boy Names:
Isaac, Miles, Oliver, Phineas, Harrison, Simon, Calvin, Charles, Felix, Dexter, Levi, William, Noah, Frederick, Alistair, Jack, Owen, Thomas.

Middle Name Options:
We want to use middle names that are family names or meaningful. Some we've chosen:
Jane, Joyce, Alice, Viola, Willow, William, Arthur, Thomas, Reid, Robert, Jeffery.

Would love some feedback on our choices, and on some possible combinations!

I like Lori's combos, especially the boy names but I wanted to give you a few more options with different ones.

From your lists, I like:
Evelyn
Anna
Lydia
Olivia
Caroline
Amelia
Camilla

All these boy names are on our long list (and we used Jack and Thomas and would have used Owen if Jack would have made it):
Miles
Oliver
Harrison
Charles
Dexter
William
Jack
Owen
Thomas

My fave 3 girl and 3 boy combos:

Olivia Jane
Lydia Alice
Amelia Joy

Harrison Thomas
Owen Reid
Oliver William
(I like these three boy first names together because 2 end the same and 2 start with the same letter … kind of tying them all together.)

If you're going for slightly less common, I would probably nix Anna, Olivia, Owen and Jack from your list, even though I love all those names!
