Do you prefer one 'L' or two?
I'm leaning toward 1, because all 5 of our boys have 5-letter names (not on purpose), but we might as well keep the trend if this babe is a boy.
Also, the name Roman... thoughts? No idea why, but it popped into my head on my way home from work earlier and I kinda like it.
Really praying for pink, but may as well be prepared with boy names too...
Husband is out so I haven't ran either of these past him yet, lol.

I'd pronounce them differently.



Two ll's.

1 L looks girly.



Roman means "pomegranate" in my language.

I think Eliot is fine, although I prefer Elliot. I don't like Roman though.

When I look at baby name sites, it has "Elliot" listed as unisex and "Eliot" and "Elliott" listed as boy. The extra letters just seem redundant to me, especially the double t. And to use the nickname Eli, you'd drop an 'l' anyway... Elliot does seem girly, shortened to "Elli"

I have an Elliott. So I like it with 2 L's and 2 T's. Looks better that way to me.

Why the extra t?



I want to go all Jeff Dunham on that name.

Haha! Right?! Jef-fa-fa!
I don't mind it, I just don't see the double letters as necessary, I guess.

Eliot looks like it'd be Eli-ot. Then Elliot is like El-li-ot. But I'm used to pronouncing both ll's.
