Its totally you and your OHs choice hun and if that is the name you want, dont let anyone put you off! PERSONALLY, I wouldnt name two kids with the same initial. I didnt even want to do that with my twin boys even though everyone expected me to. But its not to say its a bad thing to do. And I think those are lovely names individually so I would go for it Smile x

I wouldn't go out of my way to name my kids with names starting with the same letter but if I liked the two names I wouldn't let it stop me. Ignore what anybody else has to say as they are your children, not theirs. My friends has three kids - two girls and a boy - and all their names start with K.

Do you know the Kardashians della?? Laughing

Meganelizabeth - Its definately you and your ohs choice. Everyone has an opinion. My ohs sister has a strange name and their papa said to their mum - where did you pick that?! A lucky bag. But they all got used to it, and it suits her and her personality. Family will come around to your choice, choose what you BOTH want. xx

some people really wind me up with babies names, call your children what you want to hun. When we told everyone we were calling out LO Kayne some liked it and others like my BIL took the p*ss out of it saying are you really calling him that and laughing Confused whereas i find its harder to take the p*ss out of a childs name once there here rather than a bumps name xxx

The only problem I see is when they are older letters been sent to them with MR L (surname), which might cause some confussion but saying that a bloke in the office has same initals as his son and they managed to work through it.

I'd use it. Everyone has an opinion on names, it's just something they like to do (although I wish they wouldn't!) If you wanted to call him Luke, or it was a girl and you'd said Lucy, then no, but they're totally different names. I love the name Leo. Very Happy

If you want to avoid confusion with letters addressed to them when they're older, just make sure they have middle names starting with different letters.
You might regret not using a name you love.
