Getting ready to welcome a new baby to the family is an exciting and undeniably busy time. If it’s your second child (or more), you likely already have a few things figured out, except for one. What will you name your baby?
Finding a name for your child takes a lot of thought, and it’s even more involved when you have multiple children. You want to pick a name that you love, but you also want to ensure it sounds good when you say it with your other kids’ names.
It can easily take hours and hours to search for the perfect baby name, not to mention the extra time trying to sound out each name with your current kid’s monikers. Talk about exhausting!
That’s why I’ve decided to start compiling a series of The Best Sibling Names. Now, you’ll have one easy place to look to find name options that will mesh well with your existing child.
Without any further ado, here are the best sibling names for a girl named Harriet.
I’ve compiled these from baby name databases, parent discussion forums, and other sources, then whittled them down to the ones I personally think sound the best.
Hope it helps!
