    Eli Louie?

    It seems I live on Nameberry these days!
    I am expecting our third son next month and naming this one has been the hardest!

    We thought we had it settled twice but then changed our minds!

    The middle name is after a dear friend named Louis but our last name starts with S so, now I'm hung up on
    Louis ending in s and our name starting in s. Am I overthinking this?

    We are currently thinking ELI LOUIE (no s)
    Eli Louie "Smith" instead of Eli Louis Smith.
    How does that sound to you all?

    Thank you in advance!

    I prefer the look of Eli Louis S-
    Eli Louie looks a little repetitive with Eli but it's not bad if you don't want the repeating s

    I prefer Louis with the S, it looks more finished. I wouldnt say it's a problem with the surname because it's not pronounced, so they dont run into each other, like Margot Tanner

    Eli and Louis are great names

    I prefer Louis. It looks more complete than Louie.

    I don’t think Louis will run into Smith since the s is not pronounced.

    Also since Eli and Louis kinda have the same sound maybe make his first name Elijah, Elias, etc with the nickname Eli.

    I agree with you guys...
    The problem is our friend Louis pronounces his name like Lewis. The s is not silent. That's why I'm trying to get around it by having his nickname "Louie" be the middle name.

    I love the name Elias and wanted that as full first name but with the last name starting with S, I'm struggling with the two names running into each other.

    Ugh, maybe we are at square one again! Lol
