help me out with names please

well....

we had a name all picked out even before i was preggo with this little guy.
we where gonna name him Niko like (knee-ko) then like a month ago DH says hes not sure anymore about the name

so.. after talking and talking we have 2 names we both like.. its hard since most names are so different in english and finnish..

so here are the names we like

Rasmus. i say it RAS-MIS and finnish people say it RrAwS-Moose

next name is :

Leevi.. but not like Levi. like (LEV as in Lever and then i as in the letter E)

what do you think??

Re: help me out with names please

I love Niko and that's what my cousin is naming her son so I am partial.

Out of the other 2 I like Leevi more (but still love Niko)

I'm disappointed that Niko is out of the running. I have a friend with that name and just love it! Out of the two though my pick is Rasmus.

Awww... I'm really partial to the original name.

I think the second one would be better because the pronunciation issue on the first name.

Re: help me out with names please

my one nephew is named nico! it sounds similar to nikko, which is japanese either for "magnificent" or for "smile." it's actually short for nicholas, but we never ever call him that. nico is awesome!

when we were looking at houses, the one other house that we were thinking of buying was next door to a 4 year old named niko. we were all at the playground nearby and we yelled "nico!" and two little boys came running!

of the two others, i like levi.

I like Leevi, but people would probably mis-pronounce it all the time.

I know you all know how much i LOVE Niko.. but i guess since its the short version of nickoli Dh doesnt want it. he thinks its sounds russian


im really gonna try and keep Niko because its easy in finnish and english and well just an awsome name

and i already get mad that finnish people call my jasper (Yeah -sss -pair)

but dh doesnt understand since it sounds fine to him..

Dh name is MIKA like (ME-CAU) maybe i should call him mike-Ah and see how he likes it

Re: help me out with names please

I hope you keep Niko...that is so cute Irene!

I've got to go with Leevi on the other one because my maiden name was Rasmussen....LMBO! But are you going to have pronounciation issues with both of them? Poor girl! Tell Dh just to hush on this one
