I found out yesterday that DC 2 is to be my second DD I had already decided on the name Lois Seraphina for a girl but now I'm having doubts. When people have said Lois back to me after I have told them names I like it sounds to me like they are saying Lewis. Do you think they sound very similar. I know Lewis is a boys name and once peo0ple see/hear she is a girl they wont think her name is Lewis. I was even asked by one person how you spell Lois. Is it a difficult name???
Lois is a lovely name and doesn't sound like Lewis to me, nor would I have problems spelling it. Agree with previous posters about the slight difficulty with first name ending in the same letter as the middle name starts with though.
Thanks everyone as has been said both names are very rarely going to be said together, probably only at her christening, wedding and when she has been VERY naughty! But I just love knowing that Seraphina is her middle name, I aren't brave enough to use it as her 1st name and I think it would sound very exotic when said next to Erin.
I am so happy I am having another DD!
flutterbynight at my scan yesterday it was noticed that I have a very low anterior placenta so I am praying that when I get scanned again at 32 weeks that it has moved! Plus rib flare has started already which is a treat.
Lois does sound a bit like Lewis to me,I know its a girls name I can can distinguish between the 2 but considering its pronounced Low-is there's not a lot of difference between the 2 so it can sound a lot like Lewis when you hear it back but it will be obvious she's a girl called Lois by the way she dressed,ect to any random stranger that may stop you in tesco to compliment you on her
If it really starts to grate on you about it sounds,perhaps consider Louise? Sounds lovely with Seraphina and isn't worlds away (spelling wise) from Lois just an idea xx
Sorry to hear about the complications LittleDonkin Funnily enough I had exactly the same issue with my placenta at the 20 week scan - I was convinced it wouldn't move but thankfully by 32 weeks it was completely clear and I had a lovely, natural birth with my DS just after 40 weeks. Hope the same happens for you & little Lois Seraphina
You would be AMAZED at the number of people who cannot say, spell, or get the correct gender for my name. Amazed.
I don't want to put you off as I do like my name, I never used to but now I can laugh as I correct people's spelling or pronunciation, it doesn't bother me these days. I frequently get complimented on it too.
