Whaddya think? My surname begins with an 'L'

RubySlippers Tue 19-Aug-08 19:56:38

Seth or Leo

both good names

and can't be shortened

William for me

I like them all, especially Leo.

DH is called Seth, so I wouldn't use that but I think it's a really nice name.

All of them are great, s'pose I'd avoid Leo because of the Blairs.

I love Seth

Wilkiepedia Tue 19-Aug-08 19:59:35

Ooo this is interesting - thought everyone would hate Seth!

skidoodle Tue 19-Aug-08 19:59:44

LOL @ 'can't be shortened'

DH has a weird problem with nicknames, probably because he's jealous that his name can't be shortened.

So beware if you call your son Seth or Leo he might insist on addressing his friends Billy, Archie and Alfie as WIlliam, Archibald and Afred.

I only like William but thats just me..

Seth is becoming really popular, I know 3 little Seths and they are all lovely. I think it's a great name.

then Leo

But Leo Lewis alliteration could either be fab or terrible. So not very helpful there sorry!

stroppyknickers Tue 19-Aug-08 20:30:43

ds is leo - lots of them about. Love Seth.

charchargabor Tue 19-Aug-08 20:31:08

I love Seth! Only really thought about it the other day and I think it's a great name. I quite like William too, but I've heard Leo too much I think. I still like it though! smile

as long as it's Seth and not Seff!

wessexgirl Tue 19-Aug-08 20:36:14

Seth is fab. Would have been on my shortlist for a boy, except we have a monosyllabic surname and it sounded a bit terse. I still love it though.

reginaphilangy Tue 19-Aug-08 20:44:20

William. Don't like the others.

pointydog Tue 19-Aug-08 20:46:45

Not Leo due to teh surname

PinkyDinkyDooToo Tue 19-Aug-08 20:47:31

I love Seth, but DH won't hear of it. THe other two are okay, just not my style

notasheep Tue 19-Aug-08 21:02:58

My nephew is Leo
named after a number of Popes apparently,didnt think it was a very Roman Catholic name,but when i went to Rome i found an entire wall of them,may put you offhmm

Weegiemum Tue 19-Aug-08 21:18:24

Well this Seth has a 'L' in his name and he is COOL

Seth Lakeman

Very coooool!

fullmoonfiend Tue 19-Aug-08 21:21:45

Seth love it....

janeite Tue 19-Aug-08 21:23:23

William would be my choice - I really, really dislike Seth, sorry and if your surname begins with "L" then I wouldn't choose Leo.

hester Tue 19-Aug-08 21:24:18
