When you say it out loud, Eliana (4) Nelson (2) just flows so much more nicely than Ella (2) Nelson (2). Also, since both Ella/Eliana and Nelson start with that "el" sound, the extra syllables help break it up more.
    I agree with this, however I also think that Ella sounds better with Silas than Eliana, so it's kind of just up to which you would prefer more: a fn/mn/ln that flows better, or a sibset that flows better.

    Expecting #1 in June!

    I prefer Ella over Eliana. But they are both lovely names.

    It's already been suggested above but Eliora is my ultimate favorite from the three.
    Eudora - Casilda - Violetta - Odelia - Leocadia - Odette - Isolde - Valentine - Euphemia - Leopoldine - Isadora
    Eulalia - Aurelia - Hyacintha - Marigold - Ariadne - Sophronia - Crescentia - Thomasina - Apollonia - Romilda
    Amedeo - Casimir - Lancelot - Ignatius - Benedict - Thaddeus - Raphael - Leopold - Nicodemus
    Cassian - Isidore - Wenceslaus - Balthasar - Tiberius - Romulus - Cornelius - Augustine - Carlisle

    Good luck!
    I am in agreement with Ash. I really like Silas and Ella!
