Hi ladies!!!! Thanks in advance for your help.

So DH and I have 2 boys and a girl. Their names are Micah, Zachariah, And Amaya. We are expecting our 3rd boy Nov 3rd.

I love love love Lucas. Always have, just never had the chance to use it yet. The problem with Lucas is the end sound of my other kids names. They all end in the -ah- sound. So it would be:

Micah
Zachariah
Amaya
Lucas

Should that bother me when deciding? Would you use Lucas with the other names?

We have thought of some alternatives....Jonah, Josiah, Joshua...But none of them seem to fit. Any thoughts?

Although I do like the name Lucas, I think it looks AND sounds REALLY odd with the other three names.

My vote goes to Josiah, but Jonah is also nice.

Out of those names my pick would be Josiah with your other names...I really like that name and it fits well. The only other suggestion I would have as far as Lucas would be Luca instead which I actually prefer. I love your kids' names btw!

Thanks everyone.

I have heard the option of Luca and actually don't mind it but can't see myself using it. Then I would only be using it to "go" with my other kids names.

Jonah is second on my list. Middle name suggestions? How does Jonah Lucas sound? Our last name is Raglin. Mannnnn....This is so hard!! The third boy is a rough one to name!

I think I will end up using Lucas but HOW BAD does it really sound? Is it really terrible with my other names? Is it bad just because of the sound of it with my other names? It would be Lucas Gabriel. I can't seem to get it out of my mind.

I think Lucas sounds fine with your other names, but I also like Jonah and Josiah.

Of course it doesn't fit the "theme", but does that really matter ? No. I think if you love Lucas that much you should go with it and stop worrying. If anyone does notice.. and ends up saying something.. you can just tell them how much you loved Lucas. I don't think there's a better reason to use a name.

I like Lucas. I don't think it matters if the names "match." Your kids will all grow up and go their separate ways one day..matching names are really only cute for the first few years.

Lucas complements your other children's names very well. You could do Luca, if you're concerned about them all ending in the Ah sound.

I honestly didn't notice the pattern until you pointed it out. I think Lucas goes fine.

my favorite of your choices is Jonah, Jonah Lucas is very nice. If you love Lucas though I would say go for it, I don't think names have to 'match' even if the others do. Everyone's style changes!

THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!!

I think I just needed a little bit of validation that it wasn't sooo bad. I do love the name and my boys already call him Lucas!!

So thankyou everyone for your opinions and Houston, I think we have a name! Lucas Gabriel. I can't wait!

You could go with Luca instead of Lucas.

Noah & Jonah are the only other ones I can think of.
