Elias or Rafael?

We need help! Our 4th baby boy is due in 10 days and we can’t decide. We’ve thought about [name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Kit[/name_u], [name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Flynn[/name_u], [name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_u]Kit[/name_u] or [name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]. Big bros are [name_m]Simon[/name_m] [name_u]Jude[/name_u], [name_m]Felix[/name_m] [name_u]August[/name_u] and [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m].


I feel [name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_u]Kit[/name_u] goes best! All really lovely combos however!

[name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] is my favorite! I think that fits really nicely with your other names.

[name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] is my favorite, but they’re all great!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

[name_u]Elias[/name_u] & [name_m]Rafael[/name_m] are both beautiful names.

Here are the pros & cons of each:

[name_u]Elias[/name_u] pros-Smart, handsome, well known, not terribly over done, fairly easy to say & spell, old fashioned but not stuffy. And it has the cute easy nn of [name_u]Eli[/name_u].

[name_u]Elias[/name_u] cons-Eli is really popular. [name_u]Elias[/name_u] & [name_m]Simon[/name_m] share a lot of the same sounds…but really not that bad.

[name_m]Rafael[/name_m] pros-It’s sooo beautiful! And classic & romantic but still feels strong & masculine. And it has the cute nn of [name_u]Rafe[/name_u]. It’s more unique than [name_u]Elias[/name_u], but it’s not weird.

[name_m]Rafael[/name_m] cons-The pronunciation is a little awkward, because I can never decide if I should be saying ‘Raf-ee-el’ or ‘Raf-aye-el’. And it has two common spellings, which could get annoying having to tell people which way to spell it.

In conclusion, I’m probably no help, huh? You really can’t go wrong w/either. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you think that there’s a decent chance he’ll come out looking like one or the other? They give me slightly different vibes, so hopefully one will fit him better. As for mns, I like [name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] & [name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]. [name_u]Kit[/name_u] is a sweet name, but it feels too nick-name-y in the mn spot.

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] my rambling helps. :slight_smile:

What a tough choice!! I think [name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_u]Kit[/name_u] has the edge for me!

[name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_u]Kit[/name_u] is my absolute favorite!

[name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] is perfect! [name_u]Love[/name_u] all your sons names. Congratulations!

[name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] with your other childrens names.

I’m in love with [name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] :blue_heart:

[name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_u]Kit[/name_u] has my vote!

I remember seeing your posts! Your sons all have handsome names :heart_eyes:

I’m torned because your final options are just as gorgeous. I slightly prefer [name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]. However, with the siblings names in mind, I vote for [name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Flynn[/name_u]. All three boys have two syllables first names, so I would continue that patern.

Good luck for the final choice. This baby is going to have a wonderful name no matter what you choose

[name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] gets my vote it’s such a beautiful name

I like [name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] with the sibling names. [name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Kit[/name_u] could also work.

Sim0n, F3lix, Hug0 and Eli@s……are great names together.

[name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] or [name_m]Raphael[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]

[name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] is my personal fave, i prefer [name_u]Elias[/name_u] over [name_m]Rafael[/name_m] and I also think that it fits with the sibling names!

elias flynn is lovely!

I’m team [name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Flynn[/name_u]!
