10 Days Left!! Need Help!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Nameberries!

Our 3rd baby (boy) will be here in just 10 days and we are STILL trying to narrow down our name choices!

Siblings are:
Nikoli ([name_u]Niko[/name_u]) [name_u]Lawrence[/name_u]
[name_f]Cecelia[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f]

We are Italian and trying to find the perfect name for this little guy before the big day! I’m torn between something unique or more traditional. I love names with spunk and character but also not too unusual.

Names that my hubby and I have agreed on are:
[name_m]Emilio[/name_m] [name_u]Rene[/name_u] (nn - [name_m]Milo[/name_m])
[name_m]Otello[/name_m] [name_u]Rene[/name_u] (nn - [name_m]Telly[/name_m])
[name_u]Emmett[/name_u] [name_u]Rene[/name_u]
[name_u]Elliott[/name_u] [name_u]Rene[/name_u] (nn - [name_m]Eli[/name_m])

Need some advice! Thanks in advance!

[name_m]Otello[/name_m] is cool, but the nickname [name_m]Telly[/name_m] is the same as the dated word for television, so you might have to rethink nicknames for [name_m]Otello[/name_m].
[name_m]Emilio[/name_m] is sooo handsome! Keep in mind that the pronunciation of the I in [name_m]Emilio[/name_m] is different than the I in [name_m]Milo[/name_m] (in most cases). Still, awesome name!
[name_u]Emmett[/name_u] and [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] are not my personal style, but are still very nice and decent names.

[name_m]Emilio[/name_m] nn [name_m]Milo[/name_m] goes well with the siblings :slight_smile: But I like them all!

I love [name_m]Otello[/name_m] but agree with a previous poster about the nn; maybe you could nickname him [name_u]Ottie[/name_u]?

I love [name_m]Milo[/name_m] and [name_m]Eli[/name_m] as nicknames! I agree with pp’s, [name_m]Telly[/name_m] just makes me think of a British person referring to a television. [name_u]Emmett[/name_u] is okay but I don’t think it shines nearly as much as [name_m]Emilio[/name_m] and [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]!

[name_u]Elliot[/name_u] and [name_m]Emilio[/name_m] are my favorites!

I love [name_m]Emilio[/name_m]! I also really like [name_u]Emmett[/name_u] and [name_u]Elliott[/name_u], but I hear those names a lot.

[name_m]Emilio[/name_m] is my favourite from your list. But how would you pronounce his nickname? More like Mee-lo or My-lo?

I love [name_m]Otello[/name_m]! It’s unique but people will still be able to pronounce it correctly! Not too sure on [name_m]Telly[/name_m] though. Have you considered [name_m]Otto[/name_m] as a nickname? I think [name_m]Otto[/name_m] would go with [name_u]Niko[/name_u] and [name_f]Cecelia[/name_f] really well. Also a big fan of [name_u]Elliot[/name_u] and [name_m]Eli[/name_m].

Good luck, I hope everything goes well for you and your family! :slight_smile:

I definitely vote for [name_m]Emilio[/name_m]! Awesome, strong name and it sounds great as a sibset to [name_m]Nikolai[/name_m] and [name_f]Cecelia[/name_f].

[name_m]Emilio[/name_m] gets my vote, great nick name and I think it sounds lovely with the siblings

You wrote that you are Italian, but not whether you are currently living in [name_f]Italy[/name_f]. I’m just imagining those names said in Italian or in English. I would go for [name_m]Emilio[/name_m].

Have you considered
[name_m]Dante[/name_m] (steadfast)
Or [name_m]Benito[/name_m] ( blessed one)

I have a friend whose son [name_m]Dante[/name_m] (with a [name_m]LONG[/name_m] Italian last name) really loved his unique but easily pronounced name. And I like either with your lovely sib set.
Good luck!

[name_m]Emilio[/name_m] Nn [name_m]Milo[/name_m] is perfect with your other children’s names, I also like [name_m]Otello[/name_m] but maybe [name_m]Otto[/name_m] as a nn (being British, telly is what your watch your favourite tv programmes and movies on!!)
I also like [name_u]Emmett[/name_u] and [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] but I don’t deel they fit as well with Nikoli and [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f]

I absolutely love [name_m]Emilio[/name_m] and think it’s a perfect fit!

I love [name_m]Emilio[/name_m] too. My OH vetoed it otherwise it would’ve been high on my list.

I like [name_u]Elliot[/name_u] and [name_u]Emmet[/name_u] from your list.

My favorites are [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] and [name_m]Emilio[/name_m]! They’re so handsome. I would totally recommend them.

[name_m]Emilio[/name_m] and [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] are the best ones for me! Especially [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]

[name_m]Otello[/name_m] nn [name_m]Otto[/name_m] would be my choice. 2nd pick [name_m]Emilio[/name_m]
