    Need a boy's name to match big sister Leila (Lay-lah)

    I'm 24 weeks and not even remotely close to finding a name for our baby boy. We decided on DD's name (Leila) pretty much the second we found out we were pregnant with her. We love strong, short names.

    Leila & Chase: Short and its meaning, "to hunt", evokes strength
    Leila & Zed (or Zed & Leila): Super cool, kind of rock n' roll, packs a punch
    Leila & Rhys / Reese: Short and sweet, means "ardor" (BUT, based on going to school with a Rhys, he may get teachers accidentally calling him "Rice")
    Leila & Tobin: Classic and adorable, but maybe more studious than strong
    Leila & Jasper: Means "bringer of treasure" so has a very adventurous feel to it
    Leila & Roman: Kind of regal, reminds me of Gladiator,
    Leila & Wyatt: Means "brave in war"
    Leila & Jude: Leila reminds me of the song "Layla" by Eric Clapton & the Dominos so I really wanted to avoid another musical connotation, but Jude is such a cool name, I couldn't ignore it

    I hope this is helpful! Leila is such a beautiful name, no wonder it's hard trying to find something to match. Good luck (and congratulations)!

    Wow, how did you find all those names so quickly? Haha! We definitely found Leila through Eric Clapton, and I love Jude, but my husband doesn't.

    My first thought was Joshua, Leila and Joshua, but it isn't a very short name.

    Leila & Preston
    Leila & Isaac
    Leila & Brooks
    Leila & Kai
    Leila & Owen
    Leila & Tristan
    Leila & Oscar
    Leila & August
    Leila & Felix
    Leila & Thomas
    Leila & Cyrus
    Leila & Desmond
    Leila & Heath
    Leila & Seth
    Leila & Adam
    Leila & Joseph
    Leila & Axel
    Leila & Zane
    Leila & Reid
    Leila & Drew
    Leila & Wade
    Leila & Bodhi
    Leila & Archer
    Leila & Roscoe
    Leila & Brock
    Leila & Grey

    Some of these have a bit of a soft sound, like Joshua, Grey, Seth, Kai... I'm not sure exactly what you meant by strong, but I find these names with softer letters and sounds go so well with the soft, beautiful Leila.
