Julie has very specific name criteria. This is a surprise baby, we will learn the sex at birth. She would like to use the initials N.S. for a girl but she really likes the names Clara, Claire, Nora and Maeve. Family names include Annie, Mary, Nancy and Sue. Ella may be a middle name option. So here are my girl name suggestions:
Nora Shea (pronounced Shay)
Lily (Susan means 'lily')/Lillian/Lillia
Boy name options right now are William, Noah, Samuel, Caleb and Keegan. Family name options for a middle name are Joseph, Frank, Mack, Peter and George. Julie is open to using Brian to honor a family member as well.
My suggestions for boys are:
Samuel Frank (Francis?)
Brendan, Brennan and Bryant are also similar to Brian and are of Irish influence.
