I do grin

What about Louis Alexander?

DS is Jasper David.

SummerC Mon 22-Sep-08 21:19:47

I like them, but I think Alexander Louis is nicer. JMHO though...

Are you pronouncing Louis as Lewis or Louie?

SlartyBartFast Mon 22-Sep-08 21:52:33

both names as a first name?

Heated Mon 22-Sep-08 21:54:55

Louis Alexander goes well with Jasper David, but Alexander IS lovely smile.

HonoriaGlossop Mon 22-Sep-08 21:57:24

Louis Alexander is just lovely. Alexander is a bit boring for a first name IMO

<scatters offence widely>

Louis is a super name, classy with antique charm. Alexander is nice in the middle, but I agree with pp that Alex is boring as a first name - especially next to Jasper.

perfect combination - much prefer louis to alexander as first name...

AbbeyA Tue 23-Sep-08 10:18:56

Alexander Louis is much better.

BabyBaby123 Tue 23-Sep-08 10:22:12

Louis quite nice - better than Alexander

cupsoftea Tue 23-Sep-08 10:23:29

like the names

elijahblue Tue 23-Sep-08 10:36:35

Jasper and Louis - PERFECT!

That was my grandfather's name - he was a lovely man.

Louis lovely name. It's on our list for one of DTs on their way. We nearly gave it to DS1 but were told by fellow parents it's very popular. Not keen on Alexander, too staid IMO.

Jasper and Louis is lovely - Would agree with keeping the 'safer' Alexander as a second name cf JAsper David - lots of Alexanders about atm (and ds is Alexander as a second name smile)

Lovely, as long as your surname doesn't begin with T (LAT) or V (LAV), or the poor lad will have to put up with a lot of lavatorial humour!!!

minkersmum Wed 24-Sep-08 13:23:11

Think they go lovely together esp if pronouncing Louis -louie rather than lewis.

MarlaSinger Wed 24-Sep-08 13:25:03

Janice what it LAT?

Louis is a great name. So is Alexander.

Perpendicular Wed 24-Sep-08 13:28:52

I can't work out the prob. with LAT either?

My son is LAS, but doesn't bother me. Only initials like POO, COK, CUM etc would bother me. LAV isn't an issue I don't think.

CuppaTeaJanice Wed 24-Sep-08 13:40:53

Lat - short for Latrine. Maybe it's one of those words only used in certain parts of the country!

MarlaSinger Wed 24-Sep-08 15:06:23


I googled DSs proposed initials before committing just to make sure it didn't stand for something stupid.

I would never make the connection between someone called, say, Louis Alexander Thomson, and a latrine! But kids will be kids.

cheesesarnie Wed 24-Sep-08 15:09:55

i like it.

hi like both names but think Alexander Louis rolls off the tongue better
