My dad liked Larissa, nickname Lara, but my mom was worried people would mispronounce both of those. I ended up as Valerie, with a V to honour my grandmother, Verna, who was very ill and died weeks...
Parker (might be too unisex for your taste?)
Cassius (nn Cash)
Yes, Lewis for the pronunciation you prefer.

Dropped: Scarlet Elise
I would definitely say "LIE-la" unless told otherwise.
Ansel Idris (loooove Idris)
Augustine Lee or Sasha Ray ?

Just seeing this thread now! We named our son, who's now almost 1.5, Cary. We love it. So far, our world seems ready ;)

Way back in November, on Friday the 21st, our son Cary Jude was born, 19 days early! Opinions on a forum post here helped us to settle on his name, and it suits him perfectly. Thanks Nameberry.
Our last name start is three syllables and starts with "K". We like gender neutral names, but many of our faves sound silly with Sandy (eg. Sandy Lee) or sound too much like Sandy is being used as an...
Thank you everybody. I think we might go for it! C.J. is a nice nickname option, too.
Yay or nay?
Harvey Jude and Neko Jude are other front-runners.
We have a girl name picked out, and we love it (Dorothy Ruth)
We're struggling more with boy names. The baby will have my last name, so my partner got to pick the middle name:...

Lucian ( I think it's pronounced Lou-Shen)
I also think of Joss Whedon. As a big Buffy/Firefly fan, I say go for it.

Thanks everyone! Glad to know folk don't find "HEK" to be a huge deal :)
I love the name Casey. It makes me think of the children's baseball poem "Casey at the bat" by Ernest Thayer. The protagonist in that poem is a big burly athlete, so the name seems male-gendered to...

I really enjoy the swishing sounds of the first name, nn, and last name... my two cents: you're good

My favourites are Louis Zephyr and Beresford, which has the potential to be both adorable (Bear! what a perfect gruffly sweet nn), and sophisticated. Not sure why, but I don't love Declan. Why not...

My partner and I have a perfect girl name picked out, but we are stuck on boy names. Because we'll be using my last name, which starts with K, my partner got to choose the middle names. For a boy,...
Thanks everyone. "Nico" is also my preference and now I have backup :) I also wasn't aware of the "cat in Japanese" connection for the spelling "Neko"
My partner and I love this name (pronounced "Nee-ko", not "Nick-o"), but we disagree on how to spell it?
