Canaan as a MN

[name_m]Canaan[/name_m] is the name of my fiancé, and I’ve been loving the idea of honoring him by using the name in the middle spot. I wouldn’t want to use it as a first name, but it doesn’t sound great with any of my favorite boy names. Any suggestions that would sound good with [name_m]Canaan[/name_m]?
[name_f]My[/name_f] top 10 are:
[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u]
[name_m]Cohen[/name_m]
[name_m]Shepherd[/name_m]
[name_m]Silas[/name_m]
[name_m]Forrest[/name_m]
[name_m]Casper[/name_m]
[name_m]Abel[/name_m]
[name_m]Ambrose[/name_m]
[name_m]Dashiell[/name_m]
[name_u]Wylie[/name_u]

Sorry, I know my style is all over the place.

I absolutely adore the name [name_m]Canaan[/name_m]. It’s so special and meaningful. I have Zephiel [name_m]Canaan[/name_m] on my list, but I’m not so sure that that would appeal to you. I love your list, by the way! We seem to have a very similar style. [name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_m]Canaan[/name_m] would be gorgeous, by the way! What about:

@Greyblue [name_m]Judah[/name_m] [name_m]Canaan[/name_m] :heart_eyes::heart_eyes: I think I’m in love, that is so precious.
[name_u]Ira[/name_u], [name_m]Emrys[/name_m], and [name_u]Shiloh[/name_u] are also great combos!

This wouldn’t be my style and I’m not sure it’d be yours but I almost feel like with the mn [name_m]Canaan[/name_m] any traditional biblical name instantly sounds great

Wow [name_m]Canaan[/name_m] is an awesome name, I’ve never heard it as a person’s name before. I love it with all your names except for [name_m]Cohen[/name_m] and [name_m]Casper[/name_m] (just because I personally don’t like alliteration but you may?) Also I would advise against pairing it with [name_m]Abel[/name_m] as imo it sounds too similar to [name_m]Cain[/name_m] and [name_m]Abel[/name_m].
