DS2 is Billy and we're trying to come up with a boys name for impending birth of DC3. I love the name Elliot but fear that having a Billy and an Elliot will just sound ridiculous given that the dancing schoolboy is still on stage in the west end.

Am I over-thinking or is it a no no?

Oh I think that may be a no no.

Hmm - if they were the other way round you wouldn't notice, but i don't think I could do it. What about Emmet or Emerson?

If you don't mind the giggles and the ballet jokes then go for it. personally I would steer clear. Both names are lovely though.

Darn, I thought as much grin

Back to the drawing board I think!
