Gender neutral name??


We have two dd's, Mia (pronounced "Me-Uh") and Ela (pronounced "El-Uh"). We have kept to short 3 letter names because we have a super long last name (begins with H and ends with R)...We dropped the L in Ella and shortened it to Ela to keep up the three letter tradition...We are now expecting #3 and stuck on names, we don't plan to find out the gender till birth but we would love to have a name in place.

We always planned our third baby would be Noa (pronounced "No-Uh") no matter the gender but now that I see it written out I'm second guessing if it looks feminine being spelled Noa and not the common way Noah.

So, do with stick with Noa no matter what gender or do we come up with another boy name??

The name would be:
Girl- Noa Leigh
Boy- Noa Lee

We have also considered
Girl- Ily ("Eye-Lee") Aurora
Nora Leigh
Boy- Ian ("E-An") Gauge
Jax Lee
Jak Lee

Lee is my dad's middle name, Gauge and Aurora are just names we like...

Any other three letter suggestions? Is Noa awful for a boy or girl?

I would probably stick to 3 letter names that haven't had the spelling altered as I'm not a huge fan of fancy spelling.

Boys:
Max
Jon
Leo
Eli (might be too close to Ela)
Joe
Jay

Girls:
Max
Ivy
Ann
Sue
Lea (again might be too close to Mia)
Tia (as above)

Max is a bit of a trendy gender neutral name these days, so you could try that.

I love the name Noa but do prefer it spelt with an 'h' Noah. Our sons have gender neutral names. Beau and Eden
