Does this name sound odd with our surname?!

Yup we just realised the initials wc the other day if it was william...No way! Currently we are liking Ethan. This is so hard!

My friend's DS is called William Clark. Great name, though she does worry about the fact she wasn't aware of the initials until after he was registered.

/that's quite hard to say. There's a very loud kuh in the middle.

Agree with others - it would be a bit like Chloe or Clare with Clarke for a girl - it's ok but doesn't quite flow. How about
Alex
Aiden
Adam
Thom(as)
Dan(iel)
Sam(uel)
Nat(han)
Will(iam)
James
Richard
all strong traditional names that sound good with Clarke

Seth Clarke sounds great. William Clarke fine too.

Agree Jake Clarke sounds awkward though.

I know a Will Clarke. Sporty teen!

I don't think Jake Clarke is great - the 'ke' and 'C' run into each other too much.

William Clarke has a lovely, strong classic feel to it.

Thanks ladies, sounds like overall you agree and it is a bit awkward...blast! Xyla thanks for reminding me about jasper....it's v cute! Also been considering William (will) last night. Who knows, maybe when bub arrives and if it is a wee boy, we'll just know what is right

Jake Clarke is a bit awkward.

LOVE Seth.

Jasper Clarke (nn Jake) is SO cool!

I think it works fine.
In the circumstances that you would say both names it would be easy to be precise in the pause and make the names clear,I think.

Jasper Clarke would be nice.

Jacob Clarke sounds nice, and so does Seth, but I agree Jake is a bit awkward

I'd go for Seth too. Sounds better IMO.

Yes, I think you have to say it very clearly for it not to sound like jay Clarke so it sounds a bit forced.

Seth is better with Clarke.

PollyPlummer Fri 07-Jun-13 22:39:06

Erm I think it does sound like Jay Clarke or Jake Lark, but that's hardly a major issue if you love the name.
I love Seth and think it goes nicely with your surname.

Hi

Opinions please... Bub due in September and we don't know what we are having. Tons of girls names we love but boys we are struggling with big time! We love jake (more keen on this than Jacob) but when put with our surname it's, jake Clarke. Say it out loud... Does it sound awkward with the repeated ke sounds?! I think it does but hubby dosent. Otherwise we quite like Seth....
What do u think? any other suggestions, I like trad names
Thanks
