We are about 4-5 weeks off baby number 2 arriving, some names for girls but so stuck on boys names.

We have Louis (pronounced Lou-ee) and our last name is Italian, two syllable, starts with S ends in O.

I really like Morris, DH is very against it.
He likes Vincent, I'm worried it's a bit too Italian with our last name and don't love it.

Some other names that we kind of like are


But nothing has really jumped out at us.

We picked Louis because it was classic and not super common.

Any suggestions?

I like Louis with Oscar or Felix.

I was going to suggest Oscar as well.
A recent thread here a mum was planning Louis and Arthur for her twins which I thought was perfect.
How about

Henry and Oliver - or are they too popular?

We have quite a few Henrys already in our social circle and Oliver is out too for family reasons, as well as Sebastian.

Thanks so the suggestions so far!

Other ideas:

Maurice like this or Ezra would be great IMO.  I also second the suggestions of Felix and Hugo.


Louis & Marcel
Louis & Claude
Louis & Raphael
Louis & Joel

ETA just thought both Maurice and Felix would 'run into' the surname so would not go so well.  And Hugo might be too sing-songy with the surname.

I adore Ezra but it doesn't sound right with Louis. Louis is such a distinctive, classy name which is probably why you are having trouble.

Louis and Hugo
Louis and Frederick
Louis and Samuel
Louis and Theodore
Louis and Edward
Louis and Julian
Louis and Julius
Louis and Miles
Louis and Jasper
Louis and Calvin

my mind immediately went to Frederick when I saw your thread title.

Oscar and Felix are really common in my area, so they're a no in my mind.


or you could go with Lestat ;)

Lestat :rofl:

Louis (nearly 3)  is doing a bit of biting lately, so Lestat might be suitable. Ha ha!

With a surname starting with S, I wouldn't choose a first name ending with the S sound such as Morris.

I like George from your list or Oscar, Felix, Frederick or Gabriel.

Posted 19 March 2017 - 05:21 PM

Louis and Charlie

OP from your list I like George the best.

#21 Fluer

Posted 19 March 2017 - 06:06 PM

I keep forgetting about the ends in S, runs into surname thing. Which is why we didn't pick Lewis, so Morris is off the list then.

Is Louis and George too royal family?

Maurice and Felix end in the 's' sound.
