My partner and I have decided on some possible names for our future children, one of which might be on the way smile
We have decided on for girls:
Lily
Lola
Are these names too similar?
Boys:
Orion
Roman

Every other girl is a lily-Lola-Lila-Laila-Ella these days. They are so blah.
Orion and roman are both interesting and unusual, I wouldn't call siblings those names but one or the other wild be great. Go back to the drawing board on your girl's names!
I do know a female Orion actually.

I know a million Lilys.
I like your boys names a lot.

JasmineS88 Fri 28-Oct-16 14:49:38

I like Lily... Lola is okay, so is Roman. I'm not keen on Orion! smile

Orion - the worst Ford car I ever had - but maybe before your time!

I really like Lola and Roman. Lily is a pretty name but there are SO many of them around! Orion is ok I suppose.

Lily is nice, but there are a lot around.

Lola I don't like, it doesn't sound like a proper name to me, more a nickname and it has a bit of a showgirl vibe.

Orion is a is a bit of mouthful, and I can imagine people often mishearing and thinking it's Ryan.

Roman I really like.

Should probably add that Lola is my dogs name, not my actual name, hence the username grin

Lola - dislike it. Reminds me of The Kinks song. Lola L O L A Lola....

PoldarksBreeches has a point re the Lily/Lola/Lilly/Layla prevalance. Although they seem to be on the downward slide in terms of popularity.

What about Lillian? - a bit more timeless and you can still have Lily as NN?

Orion - not a fan. Roman i quite like, but it would make me think you have an eastern european heritage ( or a very big fan of the director)!

I like Roman. It's rare here but popular in Russia (nn Roma).

rainbowstardrops Fri 28-Oct-16 15:02:16

I really like Roman.
I like all the Lilly, Lola, Ellie type names but they're quite popular where I live.
Liking the idea of Lillian but with nn Lilly.

RebelandaStunner Fri 28-Oct-16 16:05:44

Love Roman.

Bigfam Fri 28-Oct-16 16:11:43

Love lily (we hav a Lilly) even with how popular it is.
Love Roman. We've chosen Romany for our baby girl due in December 😊

Love Roman

I think there are more unusual L names for girls:

Leah
Lara
Lyra
Lana

Marshmallow92 Fri 28-Oct-16 21:40:32

Roman has grown on me recently. Sorry but Orion is a car model!
Love Lily, yeah it's common but I'm biased it's DD middle name smile Lola is also nice but quite popular too!

Only1scoop Fri 28-Oct-16 21:42:23

Girls names lovely not so keen on your boys

chowchowchow Fri 28-Oct-16 21:44:12

Lola and Roman are lovely. Orion isn't to my taste.

Pluto30 Fri 28-Oct-16 21:47:33

Lily and Lola are both lovely, but you can't have both. They're just too similar.

I like Roman a lot, but don't like Orion.

Only1scoop Fri 28-Oct-16 21:50:50

You couldn't have Lily Lola surely you meant separately?

Mollykate12 Fri 28-Oct-16 21:54:34

Yeah the names are separate smile
Everyone seems to really like roman!

Pluto30 Fri 28-Oct-16 21:59:53

Roman is a very cool name, OP.

mymilkshakes00 Fri 28-Oct-16 22:02:25

Lola and Orion are great names.

SpunkyMummy Fri 28-Oct-16 22:59:42

Lola, Roman and Orion.

Especially Roman... smile
