It’s a nice coincidence for How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan that she is expecting her second child at the same time her character on the show, Lily, is also pregnant with her first. Last month Alyson and husband Alexis Denisof, both of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame, announced that baby number two is on the way.

The couple already has a 2-year-old daughter named Satyana Marie Denisof, born on Alyson’s birthday in March, 2009. Satyana has its origins in the Sanskrit word for ‘truth’ – Satya. Satyana, however is quite unique, as Alyson explained back in 2009 that they decided to add “ana” to the end of the name to make it sound better with Alexis’s Russian last name Denisof. It’s possible that we can expect another original name this time around with their second child. However, we also think a more traditional Russian name such as Sonya or Alexander would also go nicely with Satyana and pair well with Denisof’s Russian surname.

The second mystery is what the writers of How I Met Your Mother will name Lily and Marshall’s impending son. Last season the characters nearly decided on the name Jamie, before it was vetoed by Lily at the end of the episode.

What do you think is a good sibling match for Satyana? What do you think Lily and Marshall will end up naming their baby boy?

How about Elliot for Lily's baby :) I like the idea of the name having 2 L's just like Lily and Marshall's :)

For a sister for Satyana, how about Satori, the Zen principle of enlightenment? Satyana and Satori - they feel like sisters.

I'm betting on an "M" name for baby boy Eriksen, since Marshall, his brothers, and their father (RIP) all have "M" names.
