Hubbie and I are locked in debate. He LOVES the name Louis, I like it but am not 'in love' with that name. We both kind of like Eddie, and I am beginning to really like Arthur.
what do you think Mners? please help!
he would be ------- Lake, little brother to Amelie.

I love Louis - a top contender for next DS. Think Arthur is lovely too but Eddie very boring.

Eddie is fab as is Louis

not mad on Arthur ...

I liked Louis but have a close friend with a Louie so couldnt use it.
I have a Teddy (much prefer to Eddie) and if I had another I'd choose Arthur

so I like all 3 grin

Louis definitely

Loo Lake - not happy with that!
Eddie or Arthur better.

I agree that Loo-ee Lake is not great. Is Lewis an option?

I love Louis but with Lake is not good at all.

Arthur is nice

Louis Lake is a bit too L dominated, mayhap?
Arthur Lake is lovely

I like Louis best out of them but think that Amelie and Louis is a bit of a mouthful TBH

Louis doesn't sound right with Lake - Eddie and Arthur do though. Arthur woul be my favourite.

I have a kitten called Arthur...

Eddie Eddie Eddie!
I love the name & wanted to use it if we were having a boy (which we're not)
Loads you can do with Edward - Ed, Ted, Teddy, Eddie etc.
I like Louis too but can't use it myself as it was the name of one of my ex boyfriends. It doesn't go too well with Lake either.
Not as keen on Arthur but it's a perfectly acceptable name x

Eddie is ace

Tinker Mon 12-Jan-09 19:51:22

Louis Louis Louis Love it!

But not with Lake

Eddie Lake sounds like a sports commentator

dizzydixies Mon 12-Jan-09 19:52:13

Arthur nn Art is fabulous smile

Bubbaluv Mon 12-Jan-09 19:58:32

Love Louis, but def not with Lake.
Edward Lake sounds great though as does Teddy Lake or Eddie Lake- go the full name though as it is so much more dignified.
Arthur Lake sounds like a retirement village.
