Help with list?
Hi Everyone, my husband and I are in the process of picking a boys name for our second son. Our first is named Miles. I would love ANY input you have on our top names:
Locke - I like the name Lachlan but we would always call him Locke, so have fallen in love it.
Row - My husband loves for the same reason - we were looking at Rowan but would always shorten it to Row.
Lev - This is a new favourite - I love that it means lion-hearted (Leo was on our list but it's getting popular in our circle)...if we had a girl we would have named her Neve, but I'm not sure that we'll have more children so Lev also gives me the "ev" sound that I love.
Any thoughts? Zev and Finn were also on our short-list. We have some members of our family that will hate the name no matter what we pick (and will be very vocal) which makes it even harder...
I like Locke, but I'm not a fan of Lachlan but either way it's a really nice choice.
Row sounds really cute. I really like the R nicnames like Ray, Red, Roy etc. so Row seems very cool to me.
Lev is my favo from the bunch. I think it's really strong and masculine and at the same time it's unusual. There is also Liev which I find really cute.
Zev sounds weird to me. Like it is not complete.
I like Finn. You might also consider Flynn.
So it seems you prefer short names?
Have you considered Theo as an alternative to Leo?
I also have some other suggestions:
Seb (short for Sebastian)
You mentioned the "ev" sound, how about:
I Hope that helps
I love Locke, Rowan, & Lef.
Lef: What about: Leif, Leofdaeg (means Loveday)
Locke: What about: Sherlock(kidding, slightly :)), Lockhart, Pollock, Wenlock, Whitlock
