Opinions on boys name
Expecting baby #2 in May. Not finding out gender and looking for opinions on a boy’s name.
First son’s name is Wallace Kellan (both first and middle are family names). Last name starts with “S” and also has 2 L’s.
My husband, his father, grandfather, and great grandfather all have double L’s in their first, middle, and last name.
I’m hoping if we have a second boy he won’t feel left out of this tradition as I’m adamant about using my grandpa’s name, Roy, as his middle name.
While my husband is fine with a first name that does NOT have 2 L’s, I would at least like to give another boy a family name. And if I can incorporate 2 L’s, even better!
What I’ve landed on is either Lewis Roy or Lleu Roy (Louis is a family name).
I like both, but here are my issues that I’m looking for opinions on.
Lewis S. is heavy on the SSSSS sound. Yes, my first son has the same thing going on, but Wallace S. rolls off the tongue better…to me at least J. Also, Lewis and Wallace S. is really heavy on S’s, though I realize they won’t always be said together.
I like Lleu a little more than Lewis. It has 2 L’s, I love the history behind it, I like the way it looks. But I’m positive the kid would have to spell, and possibly pronounce his name, for others his whole life. I already deal with having to spell our last name (often at least 2-3 times before people get it right) and deal with it mispronounced all the time, so he would already be dealing with that. Also, I don’t love “Lleu Roy” together, but it’s not a deal breaker.
