We're stuck trying to find a name for our baby boy due in a month. I guess we'll know when he arrives... but in the meantime we don't hate the following:

Arlo
Blake
Clay
Elliot
Leo
Louis
Oliver

What do you think of them? We like names that contain the letter L by the sound of it!

Love Elliott but DH didn't like it.

I also liked (with L in)

Luke
Lucas
Miles
Daniel
Douglas

DH quite fancied Malcolm for a while as he'd been watching Firefly and was sure the baby world be nicknamed Mal like the captain. I reminded him we were Scottish and he'd probably be Malky....

Like Eliot but my favourite name with L is Ellis. It's my friends name and he's the most handsome, intelligent, funny and humble bloke ever - just after my husband of course x

I like all of them apart from Clay and Oliver (but I think I'm in the minority there).

Have you considered Clark? We also had Franklin, Laurence and Lucian on our short list. Good luck smile

Love Leo, Oliver, Elliott and Louis (of these, Elliott and Louis seem the least popular generally so sound fresher), and quite like Blake.

Other L names that I love:

Fergal
Connall (sp?)
Alistair
Cillian

I like all of yours bar Arlo, Louis and Oliver.

How about Niall, Colm, Cathal, Elijah, Lenny, Lucian, Alaric, Liam or Fletcher?

I like Elliot, Louis and Oliver. Elliot probably my favourite.

My boy is called Julien, sometimes Jules which has a nice L sound to it
