After feedback, we have decided to move on from Avis on account of the car rental company by the same name. It seems to be too much of an inevitable connection. So, back to the drawing board. We are looking for flow and equal standing between the siblings' names, in terms of being offbeat without being too 'out there', unexpected meets classic. We are now looking at Lorcan, Gregor and:
Beatrix (maybe nn Bea) - really love, but do the prominent 'r' and 'e' sounds repeated in Gregor and Beatrix set Lorcan (less prominent 'r' sound, no 'e' sound) apart? Is Beatrix too mainstream for L and G? Does Beatrix's classic sound make Lorcan seem too comparatively 'out there'?
Iris - love, but is it too comparatively mainstream/familiar? Also, the same prominent 'r' issue as above, and the fact that Gregor and Iris are Greek; does this make Lorcan stick out?
Tess - Adore Tess. Would the prominent 'eh' sounds in Gregor and Tess set Lorcan apart? Is Tess just too familiar/ short to work with L and G? Really like the idea of all variations of more commonly used names - Lorcan for Lawrence, Gregor for Gregory, Tess for Theresa.
Sadie - Like how this sounds with L and G, but is it comparatively too informal? We do like how this is a variant form, like L and G, however, and it gives the set a cute, classy vibe, right? But is it 'out there' enough?...
Which works? Whic one is the one? x
