My DH is Andrew, as you can see from my siggy.

I just realized recently that both of my children have Andy's name..
Luke Andrew (obviously)
Lauren Alexandria (Andrea being the feminine form of Andrew)

Man, those poor kids have the matchiest names, and none of it was at all intentional! They have the same initials, dad's name, and both of their names mean "from ___". Of course I doubt anyone but me would ever notice.

So anyways.. what are some other forms of Andrew, if I was considering keeping with the tradition? Or I suppose forms of Kassandra (my name) would work as well, if I wanted my next two to be ridiculously matched up as well but with a different theme

well I think your name carries the Andrew theme as well with "andra" so you guys really all have the same theme

Very neat! I love stuff like that so I endorse your subtle matchiness 100%.

Since all four of you really match already now. It would be a shame to stop
Focusing on names that contain -andr- The bolded ones are my faves.


Ruxandra -- How gorgeous! Here is a link to someone saying the name Ruxandra pronunciation: How to pronounce Ruxandra in Romanian (Român?) And one more link with a woman saying it Hear Names: Learn How to Pronounce Names Correctly - Ruxandra (f)

I do really like Alessandra.. is it too close to Alexandria?

I think my main issue is that I want six kids! It's like the Ls.. will there be enough names in the theme? lol

Alessandra is a gorgeous name. It should have been bolded on my list

I don't think the closeness is an issue because they are FN and MN, but that is just me...I would use Lorenz and Lawrence so

You could get more names if you just use the -and- portion. I think you should go for it.

I think they'd probably all be middle names, since that's the pattern. Though reading over the possibilities, I just don't love any of them. =/

Andy doesn't care at all if the kids have his name. I named Luke, and he picked Alexandria but never saw the "andrea" connection until I pointed it out.

I dunno if I wanna keep it going for all six kids. Maybe my next to will just have to have a different pattern than the first two, but still have a pattern. I can do like:

Emmett Michael and
