    Jesse Reese or Elijah Reese

    These are all family names. The Jesse name has more sentimental meaning to us, but I like Elijah, too. What do you think about these two choices?

    Thanks!

    I like Elijah Reese better, personally. It's a bit less hissy than Jesse Reese, and I just love Elijah. Something like Jesse Elijah Reese or Elijah Jesse Reese might be nice, too... I don't know if you're open to two MNs or not...

    Good luck!

    Elijah Reese has a much better sound. Jesse Reese is really E and S heavy.
    Names I admire but can't necessarily use myself: Adela, Berthe, Beryl, Calliope, Celeste, Cleo, Grete, Guinevere, Isadora, Lilac, Lisette, Lucienne, Maelle, Marilla, Marisol, Melina, Ottoline, Pascale, Sibyl, Zara, Zinnia. Boys: Alasdair, Alcott, Anders, Augustine, Barnaby, Evander, Felix, Gilbert, Graham, Hugo, Julian, Kyrill, Leif, Lev, Malcolm, Maxfield, Morgan, Montgomery, Orion, Orlando, Rhys, Roman.

    I like Elijah Reese, as Jesse Reese has too many repeated sounds for three syllables. Jesse Elijah Reese would be great if you're open to two middle names.
