A brother for Milo

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] everyone! :smiley:

We are expecting our second little boy and finding it hard to find a name we love as much as his big bro’s - [name_u]Milo[/name_u] [name_m]Oscar[/name_m].

It would be great to get thoughts on our shortlist and also any similar names we might love? Thanks so much!

Front runners:
[name_m]Amias[/name_m] (my fave but my husband isn’t convinced)
[name_m]Monty[/name_m]
[name_m]Felix[/name_m]
[name_u]Luca[/name_u]
[name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] (another one my husband isn’t totally sold on)

We also like:
[name_u]Kit[/name_u]
[name_m]Louis[/name_m]
[name_u]Ellis[/name_u] (We both really like this but I have a bit of a lisp saying it so think it would need to be a middle name!)

Thoughts and favourites would be amazing! :heart_eyes:

[name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] and [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] are my top picks from your list! If you are concerned about the lisp maybe [name_u]Eli[/name_u]? Does the lisp not bother you as much when you say “Amias”?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

[name_u]Milo[/name_u] [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] is so cute.

Here are my thoughts on your list for a little brother:

Amias-It’s interesting. It feels substantial & intriguing, but I’m honestly just not a fan of the sound. I also think that it’s a tad close to [name_u]Milo[/name_u], because it has that same ‘my’ sound.

Monty-Kind of fun & I can see the appeal. It’s sort of nick-name-y in my opinion, but I’m not sure that I like any of the full names for it better than just [name_m]Monty[/name_m].

Felix-This seems like a really natural fit w/Milo. I want to like it, but something about it seems goofy to me.

Luca-Ooh, I love [name_u]Luca[/name_u]. It’s my favorite from your list. It’s warm & a bit mysterious compared to the friendly quirky [name_u]Milo[/name_u], but it doesn’t not fit.

Gabriel-This is a beautiful name. I’m not as into [name_m]Gabe[/name_m] which may or may not be unavoidable. I love [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] nn [name_m]Gibby[/name_m]. :blush:

Kit-I usually prefer this as a nn, but just [name_u]Kit[/name_u] is pretty adorable as a brother to [name_u]Milo[/name_u]. [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] nn [name_u]Kit[/name_u] would be my pick though. It’s sort of a stretch, but fun, right?

Louis-I like this a lot. It’s smart & charming & kind. It’s easy & well known but not too over done. [name_u]Perfect[/name_u] fit w/Milo too.

Ellis-It’s a handsome choice. Would work well as a mn too.

[name_u]Milo[/name_u] [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] is fab!

I think if hubby isn’t 100% convinced I would potentially dismiss them from your front runners you both need to be happy with the name. So personally I would move away from [name_m]Amias[/name_m] & [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u].

Looking at your other front runners I really love [name_m]Felix[/name_m] & [name_u]Luca[/name_u]. [name_m]Felix[/name_m] is a lovely name that feels fun and wholesome. Stylistically I think [name_m]Felix[/name_m] & [name_u]Milo[/name_u] are fantastic together. [name_u]Luca[/name_u] is also lovely really handsome and I also like how [name_u]Luca[/name_u] is nicely connected to [name_u]Milo[/name_u] with them being four letters each it’s a nice subtle theme.

[name_f]My[/name_f] favourite between [name_m]Felix[/name_m] & [name_u]Luca[/name_u] would be [name_m]Felix[/name_m] with [name_u]Milo[/name_u] I think he’s so handsome and has this soft boys name really lovely. [name_m]Felix[/name_m] [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] is stunning.

I think from the names you like [name_u]Kit[/name_u] is also gorgeous!

You’ve had a few suggestions so count any repeats as me being in agreement with the berries

[name_u]Milo[/name_u] [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] and…

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helped

With Milo Oscar, I like:

Monty Luca
Monty Louis
Monty Ellis

Luca Ellis

Luca Ellis is my very favorite!

If you’re wanting to add to your list, here’s some names I thought of while reading yours:

Andy
Athen
Doyle
Gus
Lewis
Sullivan/Sully
Warren

How about [name_u]Amos[/name_u] instead of [name_m]Amias[/name_m], to avoid that repeated MY sound? I think [name_u]Amos[/name_u] is adorable and friendly sounding, like [name_m]Abel[/name_m] but more uncommon.

I love [name_m]Felix[/name_m], [name_u]Luca[/name_u], [name_u]Ellis[/name_u], [name_m]Louis[/name_m], [name_u]Kit[/name_u] and [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] with [name_u]Milo[/name_u].

Cute, cool, low-key quirky names like these…

[name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_u]Rex[/name_u]
