Hi, baby number 5 is on its way in November and trying to find a name is even harder this time. What does everyone think of the name Levi for a boy??? Thanks.

Not so keen.

<<tries to think of alternative>>

i have neighbours who have a girl called Levi

(they also have a daughter called Morgan, and dogs called Stella and (AR)Marni)

MILs cat was called Levi

For a boy is right. But then Morgan should be male too

It was an awful name in 1990 and time has done it no favours.

Its one of those names, when you hear a woman in the park calling for LEVI, you cant quite be sure whether she is beckoning her child or her pit bull Staffordshire cross.

DH isn't very sure, well nor am I really! But it's so much harder now that the older children are in school etc and we know more children (some nice some not so nice) that all the names have sort of been ''taken''. We don't even know if it's a boy or girl and aren't going to find out, so we need a boys and a girs name. I love my other childrens names and don't want to just settle for a name that I don't love! IYSWIM.

I like it!

It's quite cool, as long as you went for the Biblical version and not "like the jeans".

emmared1980 Sat 04-Jul-09 19:25:47

Haha.. it would be the biblical version, my other 2 boys have biblical names.

I love it! I love the story in the Bible. Levi is a boy's name. Levi was Leah's son, he was her hope that her husband had finally become attached to her 'God has seen me in my misery, and made me fruitful.'

DH said no, however.

I love it, it's my ds2 middle name.

I love it and I love the biblican meaning. However (and I don't live in the UK), it seems to have become very "common".

Hate it.

YUK - thinking velour tracksuited mum, gold creoles, croydon facelift....sorry!

emmared1980 Mon 06-Jul-09 20:49:13

No, I'm not from Croydon, trackie bottoms in the privacy of my own home at night (not velour) but I do wear gold earings!!!
So far a pretty mixed response, I'd better keep thinking then....
