Names to go with Killian Jude
Mon, 05-31-2010 - 4:36pm
Hello! I am expecting my second baby, and our first, Killian, will get to be the big brother (yay!) We love the name Kit Wyatt for a boy, since it goes so well with Killian, but I'm having major trouble with the girl's name. DH loves Clementine June, which I really like, but

I think that's a good name for a girl.

Hi there.

Killian Jude is such a cool name! Kit is really fun too, but I prefer it as a nn. Do you like Christian Wyatt nn Kit? Perhaps Christopher is nice too, but a bit mainstream w/Killian.

As for a girl, Clementine June is fantastic. Clementine is so sweet & feminine, but also quirky & smart sounding. It's an old fashioned classic that grows up well. I don't think that it's too out there. It's very recognizable.

Other suggestions-













June-as a fn? I think it's adorable.






Hope this helps!

I think they are both great honestly! Clementine is very pretty and Kit is very cool.

I've gotta say I prefer Kit as a NN, and I see that you're pretty set against using Christopher again...but I personally think Killian and Christopher NN Kit make a nicer set than Christian NN Kit...the matchy "ian" endings of Christian & Killian just don't sound good to me (even if Christian was called Kit all of the time). Of course that might be a moot point if your mind's made up to name him "Kit"...which is nice too!

How about Kipling NN Kit (or Kip)? Just another idea!

I love Clementine! I do think it's slightly out there but I love names that are really different but still actual names (not made up)! I also love the idea of Carolina. Caroline is a favorite of mine too, but I just think Carolina rolls off the tongue nicely and goes well with Killian.

ETA: As much as I love Clementine June, I'd like to suggest Carolina Jane instead of Carolina June...for some reason Carolina June brings to mind a travel itinerary!
