Opinions on Elio, similar names?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] everybody! What do you think of the name [name_m]Elio[/name_m]? Technically pronounced EH-lee-oh, Americanized EE-lee-oh, which I think I prefer. What are your general impressions?

This would be baby brother to [name_m]Raphael[/name_m]. What middle names do you think might go? Any names you think might have similar feel?


I really like [name_m]Elio[/name_m]. I also like [name_m]Eli[/name_m].

Maybe these sound similar:

I’d go with the proper pronunciation of Eh-lio

I love the name. I know an [name_m]Elio[/name_m] and it really suits him.

It’s Italian so it would go with a similar name like [name_u]Luca[/name_u]

I think [name_m]Elio[/name_m] is fabulous with [name_m]Raphael[/name_m].

[name_m]Xavier[/name_m] would be great also

I like the name and I know several little boys named [name_m]Elio[/name_m] :slight_smile:

I like [name_m]Elio[/name_m] too. I’ve always said EH- lio vs EE- lio. I suppose [name_m]Emilio[/name_m] or [name_m]Aurelio[/name_m] nn [name_m]Elio[/name_m] would work too.

[name_m]Ilias[/name_m] (Illy?)

[name_m]Enzo[/name_m] would suit also

I’ve met an [name_m]Ezio[/name_m]. I like it.

[name_m]Raphael[/name_m] and [name_m]Elio[/name_m] make a wonderful pair! I love [name_u]Elias[/name_u] too.

Have you considered [name_m]Emilio[/name_m]? I think its great

[name_m]Elio[/name_m] is really cool! It’s so familiar yet also totally unique. I agree with other posters that it kinda reminds me of [name_m]Emilio[/name_m], and I would add [name_u]Eliot[/name_u] and [name_u]Ellis[/name_u], but it also holds its own, which I really like. Plus, [name_m]Elio[/name_m] goes well with [name_m]Raphael[/name_m].

If you want other options similar to [name_m]Elio[/name_m]:
[name_m]Eliseo[/name_m] ([name_m]Elio[/name_m] could be a cute nickname)
[name_m]Leo[/name_m] (reminds me of the -lio in [name_m]Elio[/name_m])

As for middle names:
[name_m]Elio[/name_m] [name_u]Michael[/name_u]
[name_m]Elio[/name_m] [name_u]Michele[/name_u] (I love the Italian pronunciation, mee-kell-ey)
[name_m]Elio[/name_m] [name_m]Salvatore[/name_m]
[name_m]Elio[/name_m] [name_m]Robert[/name_m]
[name_m]Elio[/name_m] [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
[name_m]Elio[/name_m] [name_m]Vincent[/name_m]

I hope this helps! [name_m]Elio[/name_m] is great :slight_smile:

Sigh, I looooove [name_u]Michele[/name_u] but I feel like it’s too hard for a first name which makes me so sad! These suggestions are great!
