    A little more help pls - final 2 names for Twin B!

    Hi again guys,
    I think we're finally making some name progress!!! I'm 28 weeks pregnant w/ twin boys.

    Twin b:
    Either Donovan Edward Long...(3 syllables )
    OR Charles Edward Long...(3 syllables )

    Some thoughts on each:
    *I like the way Charles Long(3 syllables)...sounds better than Donovan Long(3 syllables)...
    *However, I like the name Donovan better than Charles (just as a first name on its own) for this baby.
    *We do not like nn Charlie w/ our last name (it is very "L" heavy), so he would probably be called Charles (sounds a little too formal to me). (We don't like any other nn's for Charles.)

    Thoughts? Reactions? I'm not concerned w/ which name "goes" with our twin A name, Oliver. I just want to pick the name that will work best for this little guy! Should I be more attentive to which name (standing on its own) I like better, or which name flows better with our last name (3-3) vs. (1-3)?

    Thanks!!!

    Judging by the way that Oliver is three syllables as well, I think that Donovan should be fine with your surname! If you like Donovan better, I think you should go for it. Oliver and Donovan is adorable

    Okay, perhaps I wrote prematurely...DH and I talked today about names and I think we're settled on:

    Twin A: Oliver Long...(3 syllables)
    Twin B: Eli Long...(3 syllables)

    He had previously vetoed Eli, which has always been a favorite of mine! I think these two will work well together.

    We still need to work on mn, but that shouldn't be terribly difficult.

    Yea!! Any feedback or thoughts?

    Eli William
    Eli Quinn
    Eli Malcolm
    Eli Sebastian

    Lots of name go with Eli really.
