Luke, Owen, or Gavin?
Would love your input on names for our baby boy, due in March. Our last name is G@ll@nt, which we and all of our friends and family pronounce guh-LANT; but at the doctor's office we'll sometime hear GALL-unt (think knight in shining armour).
Our top three are Luke, Owen, and Gavin.
Luke - probably my favourite out of the three as a stand alone name, but I find it sounds a bit choppy with our last name (hard K followed by hard G). It's also probably the most popular of the three and we do know another baby with this name in our neighbourhood.
Owen - the one that my husband is favouring. I find it flows better with our last name, but to me it sounds a little too serious somehow?
Gavin - I like as a stand alone name, and I don't think I mind it with our last name once the emphasis is on the second syllable; but Gavin GALL-unt is too much!
The other thing is that if we were to have a second boy, I don't think I'd do Owen and Gavin as a sib set as the endings as the same.
Would really appreciate your thoughts and feedback!! :)
