Alternatives for Matteo and Micah?

We were somewhat shocked to find out we were having a boy this time around. We had 2-3 favorite girl names all set, but we’ve always had a hard time with boy names. We both love [name]Matteo[/name], but one of my close friends has a son named that and I almost feel like I would be stealing. I [name]ADORE[/name] [name]Micah[/name], but my husband isn’t a fan. I’ve been trying to think of names similar to these two. Any suggestions? We want something strong, masculine and unique (but not too weird). His middle name will probably be [name]Reid[/name], if that helps. Much appreciated!

The first few things that come to mind are:

[name]Hugo[/name]
[name]Jethro[/name]
[name]Jonah[/name]
[name]Leo[/name]
[name]Luca[/name]
[name]Matthias[/name]
[name]Malachi[/name]
[name]Miles[/name]
[name]Milo[/name]
[name]Noah[/name]
[name]Otto[/name]
[name]Pasco[/name]
[name]Pasqual[/name]
[name]Raphael[/name]
[name]Roman[/name]
[name]Roscoe[/name]
[name]Taddeo[/name]

There are probably more that would evoke this feeling.

Good luck!

[name]Dante[/name]
[name]Damon[/name]
[name]Ramon[/name]

I love [name]Mattia[/name] or [name]Mattias[/name]. I’m considering this, if this bub is a boy.

how about [name]Mario[/name]?

[name]Matthijs[/name] :slight_smile:

I second [name]Malcolm[/name] or [name]Magnus[/name].

If you want to go a step further with [name]Micah[/name]… [name]Micajah[/name]? An old nickname is [name]Cager[/name].

[name]Mathis[/name]
[name]Malloy[/name]
[name]Malone[/name]
[name]Marshall[/name]

Thanks for all the great suggestions! I love [name]Matthias[/name]/[name]Mattias[/name] too, but one of my best friends just named her son this, too. So many options! Thanks again for the help. [name]Will[/name] have to sort through these lists with hubby.
