Emphasis not on 1st syllable

Can anyone think of classic or semi-classic boy’s names with the intonation somewhere other than the first syllable? I’ve thought of [name]Nathaniel[/name] (na-THAN-iel, so 2nd syllable), [name]Alexander[/name] (3rd syllable) and [name]Raphael[/name] (though I’m not sure it’s classsic enough). It seems that the vast majority of familiar boys names have the emphasis on the first syllable:
etc. Foreign variants of familar names ([name]Antonio[/name], [name]Enrique[/name], etc) often work, as do many classic girl’s names. But can anyone think of any boy’s names that fit?


Interesting that most are bible names

OK, these are really stretching the boundaries of “classic” but it’s an interesting question - here are some more I could think of:
[name]Alonso[/name] (like the character from [name]Little[/name] House on the [name]Prairie[/name])
[name]Xavier[/name] (depending on how you prn it)

This is probably not along the line you’re thinking but the first name I thought of was [name]Luis[/name] (you know, the way they pronounce it on [name]Sesame[/name] [name]Street[/name]). Which is actually a pretty cool name.
[name]Eugene[/name] (depending on your accent, I think some Americans would stress the first syllable, but as an Australian, we stress the second, and I think some Brits would, though perhaps not so much northerners)

Gosh, can think of lots of girls name and hardly any boys.

Wow, that’s a great list of names you all came up with! And ricamaca, it is weird that so many seem to be biblical. I was wondering because names like these tend to work really well in the midddle (probably why [name]Marie[/name] is such a popular middle name for girls). Take for example, [name]Jacob[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] v. [name]Jacob[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name] or [name]Jacob[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] or [name]Jacob[/name] [name]Michael[/name]. None really sound bad, but [name]Alexander[/name] has a nicer rhythm to it, at least to my ears.
