Elowen ___ ?
I keep thinking we finally have a name and then randomly my husband will ask "are you sure about...?", and he isn't one to discuss names often. We are set on Elowen as a first name. My husband loves Elowen Louise. I could live with it, as Louise would honor his Grandpa Louis. I really want to give her a double middle to also honor my father and late brother born in the month of May. So, I came up with Elowen Louisa May. I think Louisa flows better with the double middle, but my husband doesn't like Louisa. A compromise would be Elowen Louise May, but I just can't love the sound of saying it all together. We have a German surname that is two syllables. Which is your favorite combo? Any other suggestions? Thank you so much!
I voted for Elowen Louisa May. Perhaps Elowen May Louise has a better flow to it than Elowen Louise May? Elowen is such a pretty name btw!
I voted Elowen Louise because I prefer just one middle. If you want to use two Elowen Louisa May is lovely. I really like Elowen.
I like Elowen but I feel like it's more of a mystical, magical name. Louise/Louisa is a very literary name, and while it's nice, seems bland in comparison.
Thank you for the suggestions! I love Elowen Lark (doesn't sound good with our last name) and Elowen Violet, but hubby isn't a fan of Violet. I realize Elowen does have a whimsical quality, but I really want her to have a family name or connection in the middle, so that's why our options are more "down to earth" I suppose. :)
Some family names include:
Oh okay! With those options, Elowen Mathilda June would be heavenly!
Louisa May might sound better because of Louisa May Alcott - the author of "Little Women."
That said, I think I prefer Elowen Louise or Eloise Louisa May
I agree with a pp. Elowen May Louise sounds better. Elowen and Louise next to each other is too L heavy
I'm not too fond of Elowen Louise/a following one another, it's a little repetitive with the low/loo sounds. Elowen May Louise would be better.
I voted for Elowen Louisa May because I don't like the transition from Louise to May (clunky consonant sounds), and I think the name needs May to balance out the low/loo thing. ^^
