Husband wants to name our unborn twin boys...?

Cloud and Venus. I at first said absolutely not, because these are names our kids will have to live with forever, but he seemed really offended that I didn't like his choices.

We have a Soleil (So-lay) and a Stella already (boy and girl), and are expecting twins boys due in August.

We want to stick with the cosmic-space-y names (comes with the territory, husband is an astronomy professor), but Cloud and Venus are just too...strange.

I was thinking about Sky (or Skye) for one of the boys, but am at a loss for another name.

What do you think of Venus and Cloud, or some suggestions that follow the space-y trend?

We do not like Orion.

We kind of like Aster...

Update:

Also thought about Io (pronounced Eye-oh) and Europa...

    I think Cloud and Venus sound a little too over. Venus is a planet of beauty and it's more if a girl's name. Cloud is just Cloud. Sky(e) sounds nice, but I think it wouldn't suit a boy. Too girly. How about Phoenix? Such a great name. Puts a vivid picture in your mind. Leo, simple but cool. Or Sonny? Goes with your other son Soleil (means the same thing XD) :)

    Aster, Europa, and Venus are all GIRL names.

    Skye is the girl spelling, Sky is the boy spelling.

    Lo will always be pronounced low, which would get very annoying.

    I like Sky & Cloud better than Venus and Cloud...

    Yeah those are a little too strange. Cloud is just too odd for a name and Venus is too feminine. Europa and Io are completely feminine too and Sky is usually feminine too. Course now that I think about it so is Soleil.

    Altair (a constellation)

    Leo (a constellation)

    Neil (after Neil Armstrong)

    Aries (a constellation)

    Draco (a constellation)

    Skyler (still means sky but is unisex)

    Ravi - means sun

    Samson - means sun

    Evren - means cosmos

    Yuriy - the name of the first person to travel to space

    Alan - the first American to go to space

    Sterling - means little star

    Anani - means my cloud

    Mazin - means rain cloud

    Neil - means cloud

    Niall - means cloud

    Sky is a good idea! How abt Solar to keep with the S- trend? Or Sawyer (bc Stella isn't a space name)

    Aster might work but im not crazy abt it. Io and Europa both remind me of foreign movies lol

    Venus is feminine and cloud is silly. I dislike Sky for both genders. I adore Io, but again, thats feminine as is Europa.

    How about Leo and Castor?

    Cloud and Venus sound like girls names. Strange girls names. Guys can have some pretty Weird ideas sometimes. :) Here's a link to an article on space-related names for boys. Hope I helped! :)

    Eris is a nice space-y name. I think Venus and Cloud are absolutely ridiculous, not to be offensive but I'm trying to save the children from suffering with these name. Aster and Eris sound good to me!
