Eloise and Lewis?

Hubby and I have fallen in love with both names, Eloise and Lewis but fear they might be too matchy. what are your thoughts?

Definitely too matchy for me! Either one would be nice, but not both!

They don't sound too matchy to me. They do share some sounds but I say EL-lo-ees and LOU-is. I think the fact that the stress is in different places makes it work in my eyes.

I don't think they're too matchy UNLESS you're going to call Eloise by Lulu or something similar.  As long as you avoid that and call her Ellie or full Eloise, I think they're a nice pair.

As for being to similar I think it all depends on how you pronounce the names. I pronounce Eloise Eh-loh-eez. I pronounce Lewis Loo-is. With these pronouciations I think you can get away with using both names.

I really like Eloise. I really like the nickname Elle. Then again I like the nickname Elle for any girl name starting with El etc. The nickname Lulu or Lou is nice to but you can't really use those nicknames with Lewis.

They are "this" close to matching, but they don't. Not too matchy. :)
