Just as the title says. What do you think of Lois and Lana as siblings? TIA.

Geargrinder Sat 10-Nov-12 18:00:25

cheese I thought you might be someone I'd talked to about this away from here backing me up. Good to know there is impartial support for our likely choice! grin

Lana? Inspired by the Immaculate Conception thread? grin

TimrousBeastie Sat 10-Nov-12 18:01:56

That someone is a fan of supermansmile

cheesesarnie Sat 10-Nov-12 18:02:09

grin no just a crazed mner.

Try to avoid the same first initial - it means the post will get mixed up. Also, superman and Lana Turner. Too matching for me. Would choose Lara, rather than Lana (sounds less harsh). Don't really like Lois, either.

Is this to name two girls/twins then, or just your final two favourites? Of the two, I love Lana. But Lois is nice too.

I immediately thought of Superman.

BOF Lana is my existing DD. second on the way. (yeses course, now that Lana has been slagged off I'm wishing I'd invited people to read the thread first! wink But wanted to see how many people made the Lois Lane and Lana Lang link unprompted)

Geargrinder Sat 10-Nov-12 18:06:55

Thanks for loving Lana smile

Oh yeah, just re-read the title, sorry. Yes, I like them, but I just think you'll drive yourself mad calling the wrong name. They'll both end up as LanaLoisYouKnowWhoIMean.

Geargrinder Sat 10-Nov-12 18:09:29

I'd do that even if I named them A and B grin

I thought of Lana Turner and Lois Lane. Had no idea that there was a Lana in Superman
Like them both and as a pair.

I think they are both lovely names, especially Lois. Not sure if i'd have them as sibling names though.

TidyDancer Sat 10-Nov-12 18:12:54

My first thought was that they were the Playboy twins, but I don't think that's right....

I wouldn't use both names for siblings, although they are both actually very beautiful names.

ArthurandGeorge Sat 10-Nov-12 18:13:12

Too matchy

LadyGuilty Sat 10-Nov-12 18:15:08

Lana is too weak compared to ballsy Lois

motherinferior Sat 10-Nov-12 18:16:20

I would think their parents ODd on superhero comics as kids.

crazynanna Sat 10-Nov-12 18:21:05

Do you know, I have a Lois, and in 14 years of having a Lois, not one person has ever mentioned the Superman connection <true>

But....she does always get called Louise.

fluffygal Sat 10-Nov-12 18:25:00

grin well OP we do have similar taste in names! I also had a dilemma with my 2nd DD's name as we really liked a name that is a bit similar to Lana (doesn't begin with L or have 4 letters but still similar). I ummed and aahed over it, it didn't bother DH at all and we went with it anyway. 2 years later I don't regret it. I also liked a name of a BIg brother contestant and didn't go with it for that reason but no one would make that connection now!

fluffygal Sat 10-Nov-12 18:26:39

Ah when my dog Lois was in a dog contest they called her out as Louie! Dumb judges!

Frikadellen Sat 10-Nov-12 18:27:42

I think oh nice names

Geargrinder Sat 10-Nov-12 18:28:59

Loving the last two posts. My way of thinking is that the names existed before they were given to the characters, so we shouldn't let it affect our decision. fluffy we considered Clara but I thought that was more same-ish to Lana than Lois. Glad you stuck with your choice.

crazy that is a very cool fact indeed.

fluffygal Sat 10-Nov-12 18:29:32

OP Lana is a great name (biased here!), I don't know about you but I always get compliments on her name. But Not everyone is going to like the same names, if we all did it would be boring.

Both absolutely lovely names, and a lovely combination. Slightly retro feel without getting into granny chic.
