Victoria is in search of the perfect name for her fourth child. The baby will join Thane Jonas, Seth Reid, and Claire Elise.
What she’s looking for in a name:
- Something that is unique because it is old, not because it is new
- One that people can spell and read the name correctly
- Has to work on all ages
She paints a charming picture of her family:
My husband is a big strong guy, and my kids seem to be following suite. We’re English, white, rural Canadian (part Danish/Irish/Scottish/German – you name it). I’m an artist, he’s an athlete, we’re an easy-going, loud, slightly messy family! We like to give them creative freedom and room to grow, space ‘to be’ what they decide. Our kids are quite funny. One guy is quite an introverted artist, the other a gregarious stuntman.
To give you a further idea of where they may be headed, these are the names they’ve considered but each one has its drawbacks: Eli, Evan, Ezra, Caleb, Abel, and Max for boys. Meredith, Amelia, Kate, Eden and Gweneth for girls. They wouldn’t mind breaking their one syllable pattern.
Hutt’s a tricky surname to work with. I’m for a strong muscular name for a boy and a dainty one for a girl. You’ve done a great job shying away from noun names so far– I had Wren and Lilac on the list until I realized they painted a picture of a bird house or flower hut.
Keeping in mind your heritage, your family’s character, and the children’s names:
Please lets pool our collective ideas so that the Hutts have an amazing list in the delivery room!
