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

I like Noa. It actually looks more feminine to me than Noah does.

I like the name Noa but I'm not a fan of changing spellings. And I think Noa does look more feminine. Could you not just have Noah as a regular spelling if you like the name? 1 letter more doesn't make much difference I wouldn't say, it's not like he will have to write his first name and surname out in full every day and when you say the name Noah you would expect it to have 4 letters I think.

Other names:
Leo
Jon
Max

Also, don't spend too much time worrying about it as you may end with another girl! X

I like Noa for a girl, but definitely see that as a feminine spelling, for a boy to me it would have to be Noah.

For a 3 letter name for a boy out of your list my fave is Jax.

Not a huge fan of Noa. Ari and Ray are both unisex, so I’ll offer then as suggestions.
