Like Erin, unsure about Sheila.

Elija Tate would sound better to me - think that's excellent actually!

Have you seen the film 'Little Man Tate'?

Sheila's after my late mother.

And yes, i've seen the film wink

I love Erin and suspected sheila was a family name - go for it.

Tate - I'm not so keen as it sounds American. I love Elijah though.

Erin is very pretty and Sheila is a lovely tribute to your mother smile

I'm really not keen on Tate. As niggle says, it's very American and not to my taste at all. However, if you like it, go for it - it's certainly not offensive.

Elijah is lovely.

Sorry blush

Erin really is a lovely name though.

Seriously though, Elijah would be my choice for a DS, if I could ever get DH to agree with me!

Tate and (E)lyle - jah??? I like Elijah but not Tate. Lived for a while in the US and don't like American-sounding names. Erin Sheila is nice.

I love the name Tate!

I don't really associate it with America - more with British art galleries!

Erin Sheila - prefer the Sheelagh spelling.

Tate Elijah - very good! Very unusual but still real names.

Both nice! I read somewhere that Tate was a nn for Thomas so if you're concerned abot it being too American (damn those Americans anyway! ) you could go with Thomas Elijah, called Tate.
