Luca vs Lucas

So I LOVE the baby boy name Luca. But our last name is Avila (Ah-vee-lah). Is that too many "Ah"'s in one name.

Luca Avila (Loo-cah Ah-vee-lah)

Is Lucas better?

I think Lucas or Luke would be better, the a ending and beginning is a bit much

The "-uh Uh-" transition bothers me more than the matching endings.  It can be a little awkward to say.  Lucas Avila sounds fantastic.  But would you feel like you had chosen the second-best version?  If you decide Luca won't work, it may be better to look for something entirely different.

Yeah. I agree  I may need to let it go...

I agree that the -a ending and a- beginning is a bit awkward, but I also prefer Luca over Lucas and would probably go with the name you like the best. Most of the time he won’t be called by both names and, when the full name is used, his middle name will separate them.
