Ending in "as" or "us"?

I’m looking for more unique names ending in “as” or “us”. I absolutely love [name_m]Barnabas[/name_m], its on the short list, but Im thinking it’ll be a mn.

Ideally for a fn, I’d love 2 syllables… can you guys think of anymore?

Some names I’ve considered:

Tobias (on my short list, but I wish it was 2 syllables… not a fan of nn [name_u]Toby[/name_u])

Magnus (Not quite feeling it, it checks off all my boxes, but there’s something about it…)

Ignatius ([name_u]Love[/name_u]! Same as [name_m]Magnus[/name_m] though…)

Titus (Really cool, very old family name, but I think its too out there)

Icarus (I love [name_m]Isaac[/name_m], which is too popular for my tastes, so [name_m]Icarus[/name_m] seems more fitting)

Matthias (can’t use, too close to family member [name_m]Matthew[/name_m])

Leonidas (I like, but our last name ends in L, and a friend of the family just named their son [name_m]Leo[/name_m])

Thanks!!

I really like [name_m]Barnabas[/name_m], [name_m]Ignatius[/name_m], [name_m]Matthias[/name_m] and [name_m]Tobias[/name_m]!

Some others are…
[name_m]Laurus[/name_m]
Zelotus- this is definitely a GP due to the “zealot” sound but, I had an ancestor with this name and kind of like it. :upside_down_face:
[name_m]Silas[/name_m]
[name_m]Seamus[/name_m]
[name_m]Remus[/name_m]
[name_m]Cadmus[/name_m]
[name_m]Artemas[/name_m]

I like [name_m]Laurus[/name_m], but I have [name_u]Lawrence[/name_u] on my short list for mn.
[name_m]Ive[/name_m] thought of [name_m]Seamus[/name_m] too, I think its really cool, but we have alot of [name_u]Sean[/name_u]/Shawn/Shaun’s in the family or friend circle… is it too close?
