    Luke and Leah?

    Our kids are James and Leah, and we’re expecting a boy! We love biblical names, and Luke is on our short list. I’m nervous it’s too Star Wars when we already have a Leah. (Pronounced Lee-ah, but still?) Am I overthinking it?

    It is a pretty strong association. When I saw your heading, Star Wars immediately popped into my mind. On the other hand, they are both good lovely classic names and the association is not necessarily a bad one. The association will be there, but it just depends on whether it will bother you or not.

    It isn't a bad association at all. I like the names together! I'd say go for it.

    I don't think this is a problem at all. In Star Wars, her name is Leia (Lay-a). I agree that the name Leah is close, but there is still a noticeable difference IMO.

    If you're concerned about Luke, why not use Lucas as an alternative?

    The connection honestly wouldn't have even crossed my mind
