So when Nate suggested it I sort of laughed, however it's starting to grow on me.
-We don't know what we are having yet so girl names that go with a big brother named Ari would be great too.-
What do you ladies think of Abner?
Some ideas for middle names so far...

Abner Elliott
Elliott Abner
Abner Gene

I HATE the NN Abe, so some alternatives might be Ab or Abie.

Also I just found out that a variant of Abner is Avner, which kind of seems neat too. Hummm I'm I going crazy?

I not sure how I feel about Abner. Of your combos I like Elliott Abner best.

Another suggestion would be Adler. I really like that name.

Abner isn't bad. It reminds me of the character from Bewitched, but that's not a bad thing either. It's very old fashioned, in my mind, but a lot of those names are coming back recently. I don't think Abner will take off like the older girl's names are though, which is good. I think Abner Elliott is cute, and I like Aver, as well. I personally would avoid the nicknames Ab or Abie, simply because of the popularity of Abby/Abbie/Abigail. Too similar. I'd stick with Abe, or preferably straight Abner.

Girl name suggestions for you to mull over:
Amira or Mira
Janna or Jenna
Mahala
Eden
Lyde (LIE-dee) or Lydia
Eva or Ava
Zilla
Calla
Naomi
Elsa
Susanna(h)

I'm not crazy about Abner. It has a certain "grandpa" quality that is charming, but still a little too, well, old man for me. However, I love Abram, and it is quite similar. Also you could avoid the Abe nn and call him Bram.

Of the options you listed, Elliot Abner would be my favorite. However, Abram Elliot would sound nice!

Elliott Abner is my fave from your list.

I think it might get a little confusing with an Ari and Abie in the house.
