I'm very very early in pregnancy but already have name ideas.
We have 2 boys already with names along lines of Jacob and Oliver, but not them.

So for boys we like Louis or Evan,
For girls Lara or Iona.

Which do you prefer?

I like all four (not helpful!) but would you pronounce it Louie, that's quite popular if that kind of thing bothers you, the other three are more unusual

Like both girls names but prefer Iona. Definitely prefer Louis to Evan.

Would louis be pronounced like louie? If so then Louis and Lara. Beautiful names op apart from ionawinksmile

Yes Louis would be the Louie pronunciation.

Love Lara, not keen on the others sorry.

I love the name Louis, I know two and they are both such lovely people. Also like Iona. Not at all keen on Lara but that may be because the one I know is not a nice person at all!

I like the girls names, not so keen on either of the boys', but of the two would prefer Lewis.

Evan and Lara go nicely with the other two.

Love Louis, not keen on Evan though there's nothing wrong with it. I don't think either girls names go with classic boys names, they're a bit more modern, again not to my taste, but nothing wrong with them.

Evan and Lara

DramaAlpaca Thu 04-Aug-16 17:22:31

Evan & Lara for me too.

Lara or Iona, love them both.

Great names OP

Not keen on boys so find it hard to pick one over the other but from the girl names I really like Lara. It's less commonly used where I live than Iona too.

Iona doesn't work with our surname as it makes it sound like 'I own a ...' Something to check!

Lara and both boys names are lovely.
