    "E" English names for a German last name - living in the US

    Our last name is Feuer - sounds like 'foyer'. We have a little girl named Sarah - 2yrs - and boy is on the way.

    We're completely stuck with English names that begin with E, and we need an E for family tradition - first initial of a recently departed loved one.

    We like Edmund, Edison, Edward, but don't want to use b/c we dont like the nicknames Ed or Eddie (no offense!) that are bound to come. We can't be these parents that go around insisting people use baby's full name. >_<

    So we're kind of at a loss. We have a couple of likes, but nothing's really 'clicked'. Some untainted, impartial input would be awesome.

    TIA!

    I like Everett a lot. Other ideas: Elliott, Evan, Emmett, Ellis, Elias, Easton, Elijah, Ezra.
    Good luck! At least there are a lot of options with 'E'!

    I like your pics, I had a feeling Ernest would make the list!

    Eli- energetic, stands on its own and doesn't have to be a nn for Elijah et al.
    Ernest- the only drawback for me is nn Ernie, but I that's just me. The best name association I have is Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest" and Collin Firth was adorable in the movie.
    Ewan- sounds great with sis Sarah, sounds cute on a kid, sounds good with your surname, and sounds mature on an adult. Its familiar through actor Ewan MacGregor.

    Do you have middle names in mind?
