Luca vs. Dino and Eleni vs. Alessi


Which do you like better for a boy?..
[name_u]Luca[/name_u] or [name_m]Dino[/name_m]

Which do you like better for a girl?..
[name_f]Eleni[/name_f] or [name_f]Alessi[/name_f]

The last name has two syllables, starts with “B,” and ends in “s,” but there is a strong Italian heritage on my side of the family that I’d still like to incorporate, if possible, through an Italian or Mediterranean-style name.

Thanks for your help! :slightly_smiling_face:

I like [name_u]Luca[/name_u] and [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] :blush:


I love [name_u]Luca[/name_u] for a boy and [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] for a girl! [name_u]Luca[/name_u] is so bright and energetic; with [name_m]Dino[/name_m], I think of “dinosaur” (although I’m guessing the pronunciation is different, and this association is probably just a product of spending lots of time with little kids!). [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] is distinctive and lovely; [name_f]Alessi[/name_f] feels a little bit like a cut-off form of [name_f]Alessia[/name_f] to me, even though I know it’s a name in its own right.

Luca and [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] sound the best! I don’t think [name_f]Alessi[/name_f] would flow nicely with your last name because of the S sounds.

Luca and [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] are my choices.

Dino makes me think dinosaur, and [name_f]Alessi[/name_f] seems short for something. [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] is really sweet.

Luca and [name_f]Alessi[/name_f], although I love [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] too.

For a boy, I like [name_u]Luca[/name_u]! For a girl, I would agree with @dandy_orchid that [name_f]Alessi[/name_f] feels like it’s supposed to be [name_f]Alessia[/name_f]. Of the two, I would pick [name_f]Eleni[/name_f], but if [name_f]Alessia[/name_f] were an option I would choose that.

Luca and [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] are my favorites! Great choices.
From my point of view, [name_f]Alessi[/name_f] looks incomplete. [name_f]Alessia[/name_f] would have had my vote.

Not loving [name_f]Alessi[/name_f], tbh, so I vote [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] for a girl.

Luca and [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] are super cute!

Luca and [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] are wonderful!

Luca & [name_f]Eleni[/name_f]!

Another vote for [name_u]Luca[/name_u] and [name_f]Eleni[/name_f].

Luca and [name_f]Eleni[/name_f]…but I would loooooooove to use [name_m]Dino[/name_m] as a nickname for a full name or just as a pet name!

I don’t see much love for [name_m]Dino[/name_m], so I’ll pick him! I know someone named [name_m]Dino[/name_m], and I think it’s such a handsome, sweet name. I’m sure it might remind some people of dinosaurs, but because of the pronunciation, I don’t think it’s that strong of an association (or a bad one!)
[name_u]Luca[/name_u] is sweet too though.

I love your [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] option - so pretty!!

Luca and [name_f]Eleni[/name_f]!

[name_u]Luca[/name_u] and [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] for me! :heart_eyes::heart_eyes:. I’m a huge [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] fan.
