Hello all!So I have my top three names for my little boy and thought Id see what strangers thought:Elia - pronounced El-eeeyah, not el-eye-ah. GreekLeo - good all rounderCaspar - I have a long surname so was looking at shorter names but love this one.I don't really care or know whats cool or trendy right now. That's for my GF to know when she weighs in ;)What do you guys think?
Like Elia, although never heard of it before! Looks nice written and sounds nice. Love Leo, I know several baby Leos (in other words popular, but don't let that put you off). Caspar is ok but I prefer it spelled Casper.
Don't like Caspar - sorry! Just make me think of the friendly ghost.I like Elia but people may find it hard to pronounce it or spell it correctly.Think I like Leo best!
Yeah, Elia is quite common in greece(GF's family is originally greek) and I've heard it in middle east in places like Lebanon a few times. Seems to be unheard of for a boy over here though.As for Caspar, I just thought that was traditional spelling, but don't mind either.
If you like Casper, how about Caspian or Jasper?
Elia looks and sounds lovely. Would go well with a longer surname.
Caspian is slightly too Narnia for me ;) Jasper is ok but harder to shorten, ie Casper can be Cas quite easily, Jas doesn't work so well, what with long surname.
Elia is lovely but I do think that in the UK it might be assumed that it was a girl's name, and also pronounced Ee-LYE-a.
Elia does sound like a girls name, sorry. Bearing in mind he could well be in a class with lots of Ellas, Ellies and Eleanors (all very popular girls' names at the moment) he could find that uncomfortable.
Hate Casper, sorry. Agree that Elias sounds like a girls' name but I love Elias and Ellis.Leo is okay.
Elia us a great name, but in the UK will be thought female. There are a huge number if ellie ella type girls around. I personally know a girl called ellia .
Elia sounds like a girls name to my English earsLeo is lovely but yes fairly popular nowCasper is great. In case you want suggestions...CalebXavierElisAsherJonahLucaMatthias
Agree with others re feminine Ella/Ellie etcLeo nicenot keen on Casper though nn Cass is strong.
