so here is our short list for our son due in july:
Noah
Lucas
Luca
Eli

I love noah but is it a bit too common nowadays?
Lucas is nice but is it a bit too boring?
Luca i love but im not sure it goes with our other kids names?
Eli i adore and even Elias with nickname Eli but is it too unusual?

Our other kids are Jacob, Zachary and Emily and they all have J middle names so this baby will need j middle name too

I think Noah goes best with your other kids names.

My favourite from your list is Elias, by far.  I think it is common enough (I've met a couple, but I've never met a Luca)

I don't much like Lucas, I prefer just simple Luke.  Noah is nice, a little trendy atm for my taste but not a deal breaker.


Good luck!

Noah is nice - I haven't  come across one,  goes best with the others

I like Eli, it doesn't seem that uncommon to me but it comes up a lot in my circle.

I didn't think it and Elijah were all that obscure? If Noah is too common, I don't think Elijah is all that unfamiliar to most people.

Luca doesn't do anything for me, I prefer Lucas, or just Luke.

I like Noah very much, but Micah, Ezra, etc. are a similar sound and less common.

I love Lucas from your list. Not boring at all. It's a strong masculine name.

I have a 10 month old Elias so that is obviously my choice.  

l like Elias the best out of Elias/Elijah/Eli and I'm glad I used it but I've just been a little surprised that so many people get mixed up and call him Elijah, so we do use the nickname Eli most of the time.

Like all your names. Just had to comment cause i've got a friend expecting their first girl in August but their three boys they alraedy have are Noah, Lucas and Elijah.

My Noah is 4 and we don't know any at all. There isn't one in the whole of his preschool.

We have a similar taste in names. My older sons are Luca and Elliot. Elliot would have been Elias but our last name ends in S as well and it didn't sound as good. I'm glad we went with Elliot now anyway.  original.gif I never liked Lucas, also due to the S ending but I found it a little dull also.

I like Noah, a lot!  Otis supposed to be somewhere in top ten most popular names but I don't know any.  Not sure if at would turn me off it or not...

Agree. It's a great name.

There'll be nothing boring whatsoever (!) about your baby boy so that's really not a concern.  smile1.gif  wub.gif

no-one else has mentioned it so perhaps its just me - but I wouldnt do Emily and Eli as siblings.


I dont mind Noah, not that keen on Luca - I like Lucas and better still Luke.

#17 ohboy

Noah - sounds good with the others
Lucas - makes a lovely sibset
Luca - seems out of place with the other names
Eli - not with Emily

I love noah but is it a bit too common nowadays? Lucas/Luke is just as common
Lucas is nice but is it a bit too boring? It's nms but don't mind the name and fits perfectly
Luca i love but im not sure it goes with our other kids names? I don't think it does either sorry
Eli i adore and even Elias with nickname Eli but is it too unusual? Eli is not unusual at all and I quite like the name, but wouldn't use another E name

I have a Lukas (liked this spelling better as it was still a correct spelling-it is the common German spelling, but it is not as common as Lucas.  Also I think the k instead of the c makes the name look less boring, and since Lukas is sometimes an extention of Luke, I just thought it better all round)
