I need help in narrowing down a name for DC2, due in 4wks. I have a DD called Lucia.

Here's our short list please let me know your favourite.....


Annabelle or Annabella



Also grateful for any new suggestions! Thanks.

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.

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

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!

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

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!

Serena and Jude.

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

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

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.
