    these are names ive heard recently and was wondering what everyone thought. i think ive asked about leah before but i dont remember.

    i think leah is beautiful and simple enough. but on other boards, ive seen comments saying its difficult to say and spell. i assumed it was said Lee-ah. if its spelled lea with an accent mark over the e, then it is pronounced lay-ah. there is also star wars mix up and it has a bad meaning. “weary.” it would be too bad if that stuff ruined a beautiful name though :(

    edwin i thought of because id like to honor an edward but i dnt like edward. when i picture an edwin, i think of a cute baby or a dorky man though. lol.

    I absolutely love Leah. It is probably my favorite girls’ name but DH vetoed it. (He is no fun. :P ) The meaning is a drawback for me too but I love the sound of the name. Lia could also be an option; I have seen various meanings listed for that one. To me it seems so easy to say and spell … that said, we’ve had a friend named Leah for years. DH has known her for 9 years and still kept calling her “lay-uh” (I think he’s finally got it right though.

    Edwin … IDK. I want to like it but I really like the sound of Edward or Edmund better. Edwin does sound more dorky to me. It was my grandpa’s name. (He went by Ed.)

    I love Leah! It’s been on our list before but now that we have an Allie and Lucy (and Emma too), Leah just doesn’t work anymore. Still love it though!

    I don’t like Edwin at all. Sorry.

    I really like Leah! Honestly, I’ve known many Leahs, and I’ve never associated them sith Star Wars at all. Pronounced lay-uh, yes, but not lee-ah. It’s a completely different name.

    I don’t like Edwin. Like you said, I can picture in on a baby, or a really dorky and socially awkward adult, but it’s got a nerdy-character-on-a-tv-show vibe to it. Or a grandpa. I really love Edward, though… Or Edmund’s pretty okay.

    I love the names together… I actually do like Edwin… reminds me of something British for some reason
