So dc3 due in a few weeks. Don't know the sex and have one of each so far. Girls names list is long but we have no boys names at all besides Ewan or Lyle. We both think Lyle is maybe a bit too unusual but we already have Aidan and I feel it's too similar to Ewan. What do you think?

I have a friend with an Aidan and a Ewan. I've always thought they go well together.

I also know someone with a Euan and an Aiden. I think they go well.

That's reassuring that you guys know people with both. What do you think of Lyle? Too odd?

Aidan and Ewan sound fine together. It's not like Aidan and Brayden.

I know a boy called Lyle actually. I've always thought it was quite a cool name.

I also know someone with Aidan and Ewan. Never occurred to me that they were similar. I like them together.

Yes, you can.

I think of an older person with the name Lyle. It isn't as warm as Ewan perhaps. Lyle is nicely different though.

Aidan & Ewan go well together I think.

I like Lyle, it's unusual but not too out there.

The only Aidan I know has a brother called Ewan!

I'm surprised as I think they're too similar but I really like Lylesmile

I think they sound good together. Complementary rather than too similar. Both lovely names.

Aidan and Ewan sound fine. As does Lyle, so long as you don't have DC Tate ...

Aidan is a lovely name (biased)!

Aidan and Ewan are fine.

I know a mid-20s Lyle. He's one of my best friends. I like the name. smile

Lucas
Owen could be alternatives too

Jemimapuddleduk Sat 01-Oct-16 08:49:16

Yes. I know Aiden and Owen siblings

I have a baby called Aidan and his brother is Jack. I also know an Aidan and an Alexander. I think Aidan and Ewan go fine together.

I like Lyle. Knew one years ago, thought it was a cool name then.
I think Aidan and Ewan are too similar, I think I'd end up getting them muddled up.

I really like Lyle! Aidan and Ewan do sound a bit too similar to me.

I know a Lyall. I also have a Euan in my family and don't think it's terribly similar to Aidan.
