I have now been struggling to choose between these boys names for weeks. Going slowly but definetely mad. I've been waking up every morning with these names going round and round in my head. I have niggling doubts for each but I AM happy that this is the final shortlist.

My dd1 is Grace. So, go on, please put me out of my misery!grin Which of these would you choose for Grace's little brother and why?

Louis (pronounced Loo-ee)

oscar is lovely and would have named my son oscar if it wasn't for our cat having the same name already and the possible problems that might have caused!!

hobbgoblin Mon 29-Jun-09 11:35:06

Felix but because I have a Felix!

i would go for Louis

I have a Grace and her brother is Patrick. I think they go together brilliantly.

From your list I would probably pick Felix. I think.

I'd choose Felix, simply because there are so many Oscars and Louis in this neck of the woods. Unless (seriously) there was a family history of depression, in which case calling the boy Happy may just add to potential future problems. Don't be deterred by people banging on about cat food!

oscar or felix are great

Oscar, not that keen on the others.

I love them all, and were all on my list though my DH has veto'd them for various reasons unfortunately!

Out of all of them I would go for Felix first, then Oscar then Louis. Only because I know of a Louis who was Loo-is all his life and then decided to become Loo-ee for some strange reason and I kind of like names that can only be pronouced one way!

Felix or Oscar.

MadameCastafiore Mon 29-Jun-09 11:41:57

Like Felix and Oscar - Louis is yuck!

MadBadandDangerousToKnow Mon 29-Jun-09 11:42:54

Don't understand the comment about pronunciation. Isn't Loo-ee the original, correct (French) pronunciation? It's the people who insist on pronouncing it Loo-is, when they could just name the boy Lewis, who confuse everyone!

missmem Mon 29-Jun-09 11:44:17

Definitely Felix. Oscar is nice but very common and Louis may sound a bit gay when he is older although I still like it.

louis is pronounced loo-ee though!

loo-is is Lewis

fizzpops Mon 29-Jun-09 11:47:14

I like all the names.

Oscar and Grace sounds cool
Felix and Grace - a bit harder to pronounce, Grace and Felix also sounds a bit awkward to me.
Louis and Grace/ Grace and Louis - not keen on the combination, but fwiw I think it should be pronounced Loo-ee (Lewis is Loo-is).

I like Felix and Oscar but not Louis.

TwoSunnyDays Mon 29-Jun-09 12:56:34

Louis, because the others are cats names (for me anyway)

TrinityRhino Mon 29-Jun-09 13:06:33

yes I know that it is the correct pronunciation but unless you are in france I reckon alot of people will assume wrongly that is is loo-is

Its not nice as loo-ee anyway
I would prefer lewis

but really oscar is the best

yama Mon 29-Jun-09 13:10:20

I think Oscar goes with Grace the best.

lljkk Mon 29-Jun-09 13:11:17

I do like Grace.
I don't warm to any of the boy choices (sorry, but I assume you want honesty!). Oscar I like least, I always think of Oscar the Grouch on Seseme Street. Felix is a cat or screams upper class to my ears. So I guess Louis is best one (BUT my brother was Louis, and he has always HATED it, has gone by his middle name most his life instead).

Jumente Mon 29-Jun-09 13:11:32

Louis, Oh yes. Great with Grace smile

mrsradders Mon 29-Jun-09 14:50:07
