That's one of those sibling name combos. We knkw several oliver/Elliott brothers. (William/alexander are another!)

Oliver (this time)

I know Oliver and Elliot brothers in their twenties!

I prefer Oliver.

I know a thousand little Olivers so Elliot for me.

Ds2 is Oliver and Elliot is number 1 choice for ds3 due in May...never realised it was a common sibling match! Don't know if that makes me like Elliot more or puts me off tbh.

Elliot. There are 3 Olivers in DD's class and we know lots more. They are always know as Oliver Lastname.

I only know one Elliot.

Elliot ( and definitely with this spelling grin ). Mine was 14 on the 29th, and there might be another in his year, but it's not a particularly 'popular' name.

I actually love name Oliver too, though. And I don't really mind names that are popular- most of them are because they are lovely names.

BUT- if people spelling things incorrectly bothers you, go with Oliver. grin.

Elliot is a lovely name. Oliver is totally over done.

Either! .....sorry I'm not much help. Both are gorgeous names.

I absolutely love both. Elliot nudges it due to Oliver popularity, but I would happily use either.
