    Changes to our future baby name list

    So for the past year, we've had the name Austen Elisha on our list. I love how soft and gentle it sounds, but as both those names are now getting more popular for girls, I think that both names together might look too feminine.
    So DH and I decided to change-

    Austen Elisha to Austen Theodore

    and

    Elliott Theodore to Elliott Hezekiah


    What do you think?
    Do you like the names and do they work better now or before?

    I personally think Austen Elisha worked better.

    Not only because I prefer Elisha over Theodore, but also because Austen Elisha sounds a tad better in my ears.

    And I don't really think the femininity (is that a word?) would be an issue, mostly because people won't hear his middle name a lot.

    I think Austen Elisha is a very handsome combo, so I wouldn't change it.

    I agree with the pp. I would also suggest changing Austen to Austin so that it looks more masculine, I would expect an Austen to be feminine but that might just be me. Elliott Theodore is very handsome too.

    Thanks, but we love Austen because of the slight difference in pronunciation, the fact it's different from Austin Texas, and Austin Powers, and because I love Jane Austen

    I like Austen for a boy but not Elisha.
    Austen Theodore is a great change. Not crazy about Elliot, that name still always makes me think of E.T.

    What about Austen Elijah?
