Hey ladies,
I am due in 4 weeks and starting to panic since we have no names picked yet. Here is my random list of names that I like and that work with our last name (Klein), but I am still willing to cross many off the list.
Please vote on your favorite, and if you really hate any, let me know so that i can narrow the list down a bit. Thanks!!!

We live in Germany, and the "new" pronounciations are actually how the name is said here. I didnt make them up. :-) And people will automatically pronounce it like that here.

I like Nathaniel, Connor, Joshua and Lukas (though I do prefer the spelling Lucas). I really like Levi, but not they way you're pronouncing it. I much prefer Lee-vi

I think that the three that you wrote out the pronunciation will constantly be mispronounced...as it's not the common pronunciation.

I like Connor, Neal and Owen. I like Nicholas for a middle name...

Connor Nicholas
Owen Nicholas
Neal Joshua

I like Caden, Tyler and Colin. I agree that the pronunciations will be really hard for people and your boy will have to constantly be correcting people.

I agree!! I also like Levi but I am with the other girls, I prefer Lee-vie. My favorite from your list is Nathaniel (Nate). I do not like Tobias at all, I think that Connor, Collin, Tyler are real common and may have several of the same name in his school/class when he is that old.

Good luck with your delivery and picking his name!!

My favorite would be Elias, but not the way you're pronouncing it. SO I voted for Joshua and Owen.

just curious- why do you want Levi, Elias and Tobias pronounced that way? They are my three favorite names from your list, but not with those pronunciations. So I voted for Conor and Owen

I like the name Nathaniel very much.

I like Tobias, but not with the pronunciation you listed. I like it said "Toe-bye-us".

I think you should take into concideration with your new pronunciations that he will never get called that. I have a name that is difficult to pronounce (becuase of the way it's spelled). MANY MANY of my teachers never attempted to correct the way the said it. I tried not answering to the butchered version, but nothing worked. My own grandmother still pronounces it wrong. My name is Alicia, just spelled differantly, and what a differance it makes. Alicia isn't that hard to pronounce.

I like Tobias and Elias but I do not like your pronounciations (sorry) so I couldnt pick them.

IMO you shouldnt change the pronounciation...nobody will pronounce it right. He will spend his entire life correcting people. Much like when someone takes a traditional name and gives it a "uneek" spelling.
