They're fine. Eve is lovely. I'd swap the boys names over though smile

Love both. Probably Victoria more than Eve, and Lucas more than Alexander, but only marginally.

Gorgeous! You have great taste op.

I prefer Victoria to Eve. Alexander Lucas is great.

Love both. The only slight sticking point for me is that the girl's second name starts with the same sound that the first ends with. So when you say it out loud the two names run together, ie 'Eevictoria'. Feel free to ignore me, but I would suggest changing it to Eva or Evelyn, just to separate the V sounds.

I agree that Eve Victoria or Victoria Eve would run in together (Evictoria / Victoriareve) but that isn't necessarily a problem, because how often does someone say his or her full name?

Of more interest is that Eve names are very very popular. Victoria is far more unusual, but still a classic. I'd definitely prefer Victoria over Eve which is so ubiquitous round these here parts as to be a little dull.

Alexander Lucas is great. Alexander a very strong first name.

Thanks for replies..

Am considering changing Eve Victoria to 'Eve Christina Eleanor' Christina and Eleanor are my sisters names and Eve is a shortened version of my name 'Genevieve' what do you think?

..I do like Eve Victoria though!

I still love Alexander Lucas.

Thanks x

They're lovely! I also like your suggestion of Eve + sisters names (your parents had good taste btw wink )
