DS was nameless for over a week when he was born, so I am trying to be a little more organised this time around!
I posted a few weeks ago about using a Dutch name, Evelien (pronounced Ay-veh-leen) and I think
for a girl its still my front runner but chasing some opinions on the following:
Middle name will be Roel. Difficult to spell pheonetically - maybe Rule or Roo-el? Its almost a half syllable?. First names are:
I am leaning towards Xander Roel but need some feedback :-) Or any other suggestions!!!
Oh, our DS is Liam.

Heidi Joy and Owen Roel

Heidi and Xander for me!

I'll come back in a min but you've spelt Evelien 2 different ways in your post. I think it should be this one.

Oh yeah, sorry - thanks Gudrun, typo. Edited to fix!
(and again becuase I have a busy toddler on my lap and typing is a challange)

I prefer Maja of all your name options, but don't like the MN Grace at all. Maja Evalien would be my pick if I could mix it up; Heidi Joy if I can't.
I would prefer Alexander Roel to Xander, and that would be my frontrunner. If Alexander wasn't an option then I'd prefer Owen Roel and then Lucas Roel in that order; none of the others compare.

Heidi Joy and Maja Grace are DIVINE. I can't split them, or fault them.
I love Owen.

I posted a few weeks ago about using a Dutch name, Evelien (pronounced Ay-veh-leen) and I think for a girl its still my front runner but chasing some opinions on the following:
Evelien Joy - nice
Heidi Joy - love it
Maja Grace - ok, prefer Maya spelling though
Xander - ok
Aiden - goes best with Liam
Lucas - depends if you want all L names or not, good
Oliver - nice
Payton - sorry don't like for a boy
Owen - nice, not sure it goes with Liam though

maja and xander

Love Evelien Joy but only if it is pronounced [ever-leen].
Heidi Joy is a nice combo too.
For a boy I would favour Lucas Roel or Aiden Roel. I'd have to concede that Owen goes well with Liam even though it's not a favourite of mine.
Posted 13 February 2013 - 08:38 PM
Definitely Heidi and Oliver.

I like Oliver Roel, but would really like Alexander Roel. Owen is great with Liam, but not so great with Roel.
I'm slowly warming to Evelien. Evelien Joy is very nice. I like Heidi and Maja too, but don't like Grace as a middle name. Any of the 3 is good really.
