I like it too. :\ But it doesn't really flow well with Lorenzo, in my opinion, and I'd like for it to!

Not a huge fan of either, tbh... and Noel is female to me.

It's pronounced Nole, not No-elle. :)

Then I would spell it that way, honestly... or Knoll, like the surname. Because "Noel" is "No-el", just like it looks, and in the Christmas song "The First Noel".

Funny, you are the only one who doesn't know that Noel is pronounced like Nole. Just like Joel is Jole. She shouldn't change it, and it's a middle name, why bother?

Both pronunciations are actually correct. But if she doesn't want it "mispronounced" or pronounced with more masculinity, then I would consider changing the spelling. Just my opinion. :)

If you can acknowledge that both are correct then why should she change it? Either way, someone would mispronounce it. I don't see why a boy needs to have a more masculine name. Already with the gender stereotypes and double standards and he isn't even born? SMH.

I like Perseus better. And sibling names don't have to match. My sister has a flower name, I have a Roman/Latin name, and my brother's name is Hebrew.
