Sienna and Elliot I like Henry but it is VV popular these days.

picnicbasketcase Mon 26-Aug-13 22:54:12

Phoebe and Henry. But Sienna and Jude are also nice.

blondieminx Mon 26-Aug-13 22:55:24

Henry is very popular. I like Elliott though.

Of your girls choices I like Serena. What about other Italian sounding names like Sara?

MarianneBrandon Mon 26-Aug-13 22:57:52

Phoebe and Henry

perplexedpirate Mon 26-Aug-13 22:59:48

I agree with bear

MamaTo3Boys Mon 26-Aug-13 23:00:14

Annabelle and Elliot are lovely smile

Serena and Henry get my vote.

RegularVoltaire Mon 26-Aug-13 23:08:15

Lucia and Annabel or Phoebe

Lucia and Henry

Viviennemary Mon 26-Aug-13 23:08:18

Anabelle and Henry.

littlemog Mon 26-Aug-13 23:13:06

Lucia can only be pronounced loo-chee-a and you'd be a bit dim to pronounce it loo-see-a!

I would go for Henry and Annabella.

littlemog Mon 26-Aug-13 23:13:44

In fact Annabella goes very well with Lucia so I hope you have a girl!

RegularVoltaire Mon 26-Aug-13 23:17:39

I read it and pn it loo-sha in my head.

How do you pn it OP?

littlemog Mon 26-Aug-13 23:22:52

I think it could be pronounced Loo-see-a if you Anglicise it but as it's Italian it should be loo-chee-a. Loo-chee-a sounds beautiful too. Really lovely name OP.

As a teacher doing the register I would pronounce this Loo-chee-a.

Not loo-sha surely?!

PixelAteMyFace Mon 26-Aug-13 23:38:53

Serena is my favourite name ever, and goes beautifully with Lucia.


MummyBeerest Tue 27-Aug-13 01:37:19

Serena and Jude, they go well with Lucia.

SkylerRose Tue 27-Aug-13 01:39:27

Serena / phoebe
What about tobias (Toby) / jessen

TheFillyjonk Tue 27-Aug-13 02:06:33

Phoebe and Elliott.

DalekInAFestiveJumper Tue 27-Aug-13 03:58:51

Phoebe and Elliott, although TBH, I like all of your boys names!

lisbapalea Tue 27-Aug-13 04:07:48

It's not "thick" to pronounce Lucia with an "s" sound - that is how it is pronounced in Sweden.

Phoebe and Henry would be my top choices. Both sound lovely with Lucia, however it is pronounced!

Layl77 Tue 27-Aug-13 06:48:15

Lucia in Spanish is pronounced loo-see-a so you would be "a bit dim" to think there's only one way of pronouncing a name.
I like annabel and Henry/Elliot

Ohcrapwhathaveidone Tue 27-Aug-13 10:12:07

Thanks for the replies.

I'm afraid I must be a bit dim then because I do pronounce it loo-see-ahwink, I toyed with the idea of going for loo-chee-ah as it is lovely but I thought that with an English accent loo-see-ah comes more naturally.

It looks like Phoebe and Annabelle are the front runners for girls and Elliott and Henry for boys.

I love Henry but do worry that it is very popular. My DH loves Edison but I'm yet to get one vote for that-what do you think of it?

Thanks also for the suggestions I do like Tobias but a good friend of mine has a DS called that so it's a no go!

Phoebe & Henry

squoosh Tue 27-Aug-13 10:18:38

Serena and Jude.


MortifiedAdams Tue 27-Aug-13 10:19:40

Phoebe and Elliott

I always thought it was pronounce Loo-Sha.

BlueStarsAtNight Tue 27-Aug-13 10:45:09

I like Phoebe from the girls.

For boys, I like Henry, Elliot and Edison smile

LauraChant Tue 27-Aug-13 10:46:59

Phoebe or Serena and Henry

EnjoyEverySandwich Tue 27-Aug-13 11:23:04


MintyDiamonds Tue 27-Aug-13 11:29:15

I know a Lucia who is Spanish and its pronounced Loo-see-ah, never heard it pronounced the other way. My favourites are sienna or serena, don't like the name phoebe . For the boys I like Jude not keen on the others.

HighJinx Tue 27-Aug-13 11:37:24

I like Serena and Jude.

I think your DH's love of Edison should hold more sway than a poll on MN though wink

littlemog Tue 27-Aug-13 12:23:10

Each to their own! Loo-chee-a is far more beautiful a name than Loo-see-a though!

ZolaBuddleia Tue 27-Aug-13 13:35:20

Sienna or Phoebe
Jude or Edison

MadameJosephine Tue 27-Aug-13 13:42:08

Phoebe and Edison

MadameJosephine Tue 27-Aug-13 13:43:56

In totally with your DH on Edison, love it but DP vetoed it along with Darwin which I also loved. Luckily we had a girl so I forgave him

MadameJosephine Tue 27-Aug-13 13:44:36


absentmindeddooooodles Tue 27-Aug-13 13:48:11

I have a jude. Love the name and always getting compliments. Also a family membr called phoebe. Same goes. Gorgeous names.
Serena and henry as second choices :-)

noodlebum Tue 27-Aug-13 14:03:21

I like Phoebe, Sienna and Elliott best. All of them are nice enough though!

BikeRunSki Tue 27-Aug-13 14:04:32

Phoebe and Jude

SadPander Tue 27-Aug-13 20:58:57

Pheobe is lovely and the only one of your girls names I like, for a boy and either Elliot or Jude, although Henry is also quite nice.

Alisvolatpropiis Tue 27-Aug-13 21:00:19


littlemog Tue 27-Aug-13 21:00:54

Jude is a great name but does have the depressing Thomas Hardy connection!

I still love it though!

RegularVoltaire Tue 27-Aug-13 21:40:29

littlemog Tue 27-Aug-13 12:23:10

Each to their own! Loo-chee-a is far more beautiful a name than Loo-see-a though!

Do you mean in your opinion there littlemog?
You stated that as though it's fact ...

littlemog Tue 27-Aug-13 22:02:57

So everything anyone says on here has to be prefaced with 'in my opinion'? I hadn't noticed anyone else do that.

Ho hum.

RegularVoltaire Tue 27-Aug-13 22:24:45

I'm not going to look at all threads and verify or refute that littlemog, I just thought it was a little arrogant to state that the opposite pn of OP's dd's name was a far more beautiful name than her dd's. She wasn't asking for any opinions on her dd's name, after all.

Ho hum indeed.

magicstars Tue 27-Aug-13 22:28:37

Annabelle & Henry

NowPlayingZone Tue 27-Aug-13 22:28:56

Serena & Jude

littlemog Tue 27-Aug-13 23:09:50

Yes, you are right. I shall voice no opinions in future as this means I am arrogant.

I'm right about Lucia though....grin

RegularVoltaire Tue 27-Aug-13 23:42:22

You're not arrogant for offering your opinion littlemog smile

It is, however, arrogant to offer an opinion as if it's fact ...and possibly more to the point, it's rude to offer said 'fact' about a child's name when the opinion was never sought in the first place.

And you're not right grin

Phoebe and Elliot

RalphGnu Tue 27-Aug-13 23:54:41

Phoebe and Jude.
