I’d probably try for a name with 3+ syllables and a softer overall sound.

I voted for [name]Erik[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name], but the first thought I had was [name]Erik[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] - also very handsome!

Thanks for the suggestions. I also like [name]Erik[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] or [name]Erik[/name] [name]Andrew[/name], but I’ve seen [name]Eric[/name]'s complain about being teased for “a” middle initials looking like [name]Erica[/name] ([name]Eric[/name] A.). [name]Theodore[/name] and [name]Elliot[/name] have floated onto my list, too, along with short names [name]Reed[/name]/[name]Reid[/name] and [name]James[/name].

I voted for [name]Erik[/name] [name]Leonhard[/name]. I am a sucker for family names. :slight_smile: Otherwise, I like [name]Erik[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name]. (and I love the way you are spelling [name]Erik[/name]!) Good luck.

I am all for family names so if there is real meaning I would go for it!

I voted for [name]Erik[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name] (as a non-family name) but I also like using family names so [name]Leonhard[/name] also gets a vote from me but it didn’t submit that one, even though I intended too.

[name]Erik[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name] is very handsome. I saw your previous on this combo and I have to say I think it has all the elements of a gorgeous name with a continental flair.
