Isaac. It's a bit gentler sounding.

My friend has an Elijah and an Isaac too (wonder if I know your cousin VS?) - I love both names, Elijah is shortened to Eli (Ee-lie) most of the time which I also like as an abbreviation.

oooooooo alien, does her name start with a C and DH an M??????

I love a good mystery........ still Isaaac btw wink

dinkymum Fri 17-Oct-08 21:36:42

Isaac here for me, its on my list but DH needs more work lol

Neither, but Isaac is better.

Isaac - it's my DS's name so am biased though.
It has stood him in very good stead.
(Like Elijah too, but sounds a bit too 'holy' IYSWIM)

"Isaac's a soft name/It sounds like a pocket full of rain'
(Prefab Sprout - Little Green Isaac)

im new to this - what does DC, DS, DDS etc mean??

Thanks for all your votes - I should also have mentioned we also have a Noah (can you see a theme going on here...!)

Look along the top of the page here and see *Useful stuff* follow along from this and look on the acronym list, that will give you a good starting point smile

purpleturtle Fri 17-Oct-08 22:02:32

I have a Noah and an Elijah. An excellent precedent, I feel. smile

Merrylegs Fri 17-Oct-08 22:03:16

ooh, Micah is nice, if you're going all Old Testament.

(DS - son/ DH - Husband etc)

MakemineaGandT Fri 17-Oct-08 22:04:06

Isaac if you must. Elijah a def. no-no, especially with Noah as a big brother

What's wrong with James/Matthew/Luke etc if you want something churchy?

Perhaps she wants Jewish, rather than Christian, G&T
