Help us choose!

My husband and I are trying to choose between, [name]Gabriella[/name] ([name]Gabi[/name]) for short and [name]Leila[/name]. I don’t have a good middle name for either. We are also open to other suggestions!
Thanks, [name]Megan[/name]
Also our son’s name is [name]Bennett[/name] and I would like something that somewhat goes with his name!

I prefer [name]Leila[/name] of the two but I think [name]Gabriella[/name] goes better with [name]Bennett[/name]. What about [name]Lila[/name]? I think [name]Lila[/name] and [name]Bennett[/name] would be adorable.

I, too, prefer [name]Leila[/name]. I think [name]Bennett[/name] and [name]Leila[/name] are adorable together! I agree with @dillonsfan01 that [name]Lila[/name] and [name]Bennett[/name] would be just adorable, as well. What about [name]Leila[/name] [name]Gabrielle[/name]? I think [name]Leila[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] and [name]Leila[/name] [name]Johanna[/name] are lovely, as well.

Good luck!

Thank you for the suggestions! I like [name]Lila[/name] too, but unfortunately my husbands brother and his wife have a 1yr old daughter named [name]Isla[/name] and I worry that would be too similar…

I like [name]Gabriella[/name] because that’s my sister’s name! Her name is [name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Elise[/name] :slight_smile: and i think for [name]Leila[/name] you could go with [name]Leila[/name] [name]Grace[/name] or [name]Leila[/name] [name]Elaine[/name]. but i vote for [name]Gabriella[/name]!

I like [name]Gabriella[/name], especially w [name]Bennett[/name]. I see your concern with [name]Leila[/name] resembling [name]Isla[/name] (we liked [name]Avery[/name] but her cousin is an [name]Ava[/name], so that was nixed). [name]Gabi[/name] is a cute nn too

What about [name]Leila[/name] [name]Bryn[/name]?

I prefer [name]Leila[/name] to [name]Gabriella[/name] but think they both are fine with [name]Bennett[/name]. Here are some more suggestions for mns:

[name]Leila[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Leila[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]
[name]Leila[/name] [name]Irene[/name]
[name]Leila[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Leila[/name] [name]June[/name]

[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Fleur[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Felice[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Celeste[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Sabine[/name]

Thanks for the suggestions!

I’m frustrated bc nothing jumps out at me this time and with our son it was so easy…

I think [name]Leila[/name] is much better. Not a [name]Gabriella[/name] fan at all.

I prefer [name]Leila[/name]. [name]How[/name] about [name]Lilia[/name] instead?

Thanks for the suggestions! If anyone has any others I am open;)
