Dear All,

We are expecting our 4th baby in Feb - still struggling to decide on names - what do you think of this boys name:

Luca Brendan

(Brendan is a family name that I would like to use but im open to other suggestions)

thanks in advance

Because of the syllable rhythm of 2-2, I'd be tempted towards Luke Brendan, but admittedly I just prefer Luke's clean lines anyway.

How many syllables is your last name? Don't tell us what it is, just how long?

Levi Brendan is 2-2 but avoids the whole suite of Luke- names which are all pretty popular.
Joel Brendan
Heath Brendan
Josiah Brendan
Nathaniel Brendan
Micah Brendan, Ezra Brendan - Same rhythm and -a ending first, but less common than Luca.

I like Luke as well but I'm not fond of Lucas.

I don't like Luca paired with Brendan. I do love the name Luca though. I think Lucas or Luke go better with Brendan.

I think Luca is a wonderful name, I am ambivalent about Brendan, mostly because it was the name of my first boyfriend. I think Luca Brendan works quite well, despite the different origins, my son has a Spanish first name and an English/Irish middle name so I'm not averse to the idea of Luca Brendan wink.gif.

I love Luca, not so keen on Brendan though, but I understand that's a family name.
I think Luca is a lovely first name, would have it on my own list if it wasn't so similar to DD's name biggrin.gif

Although  I do far prefer the name Luke.

I think I agree with Sunnycat.  The flow is fine but they just look a bit odd together. Nothing binds them if that makes sense. Lucas or Luke are just fine.
