31+ weeks with DCDA twin boys, we have decided unless they really don't suit them on the first names Lewis and Noah.

For Middle names we like James and John

I would love to know opinions on which way round sounds better..

Lewis John and Noah James
Or
Lewis James and Noah John

Thanks!!

Lewis John and Noah James

I wouldn't like to have two names ending with s, which is why I didn't like Lewis James.

Thank you Ants, that was the order DP wants - choosing 2 names has been tricky so wanted to be double sure smile

I Agree
Lewis John & Noah James

I agree too - Lewis John and Noah James.

You can't have John and Lewis in the same name. Surely not?

Noah John
Lewis James

I agree with Mrs lettuce

My mum said no one would pick up on the John Lewis link, it was one of my primary concerns shock haha

Oh! I hadn't noticed that grin

Might Louis (prn. Loo-ee) work for you instead of Lewis? The combination with Noah feels more balanced it the mouth too, IYSWIM.

Oh dear. I think Noah James sounds lovely, but that leaves you with Lewis John, which did make me think of JL. What about Jonathan instead of John?

Louis John
Noah James

I didn't think of John Lewis but now that I see it I think Lewis James and Noah John! Both lovely names.

Because of JL, I think go with Lewis James and Noah John.

Never even thought of John Lewis.
Best of with Lewis James and Noah John.

Lewis and Noah are gorgeous twins names, just thought I'd throw that in here!

Thank you all for your mixed input! And thanks Jemima smile

Fraid JL was my first thought.

Noah John and Lewis James - but I'm biased as I already have a Noah John grin (having cast around for a second name for a long time and avoided John as it was my late dad's and we'd decided we didn't want to use any family names - but we both independently decided that we thought Noah John worked really really well).

Congratulations on the twins - and they are all lovely names!

Noah John and Lewis James - they are both the same letters smile then you don't get the JL connection too. However, I didn't think of it

Lewis James sounds like an estate agents.
