Help naming Ezra's sibling...

[name_u]Baby[/name_u] number two is due in the spring and we’re not finding out the sex so we need names for both and we’re really struggling.

Our son is [name_m]Ezra[/name_m] [name_u]Michael[/name_u]. [name_m]Ezra[/name_m] is considered very unusual where we live (near [name_u]London[/name_u]) and I’m having a hard time coming up with names that compliment it.

It doesn’t have to be biblical, especially as we’re not religious, but I do like a lot of biblical names.

The only rules are no names ending in S (clashes with surname) and I don’t want another E name.

Please don’t overwhelm me with long lists of names, I feel like I’ve already been through thousands!
If you could just suggest a few well chosen names that you’d personally use with [name_m]Ezra[/name_m] that would be so helpful.

Top contenders at the moment are [name_u]Jude[/name_u] and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] ([name_f]Tilda[/name_f]/[name_f]Tilly[/name_f])
with runners up [name_m]Jonah[/name_m], [name_m]Jacob[/name_m], [name_f]Clara[/name_f] and [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] but we’re not 100% sold on any yet.

I really like [name_u]Jude[/name_u], if its the top contender…go with it! It sounds good with [name_m]Ezra[/name_m]. I like it better than [name_m]Jonah[/name_m] & [name_m]Jacob[/name_m].
(FYI - [name_m]Ezra[/name_m] is one of my favorite names. A combo on my boys list is Erza [name_u]Michael[/name_u] too! [name_u]Michael[/name_u] is a family name)

Suggestions:
[name_m]Abel[/name_m]
[name_m]Otto[/name_m]
[name_m]Eli[/name_m]
[name_m]Silas[/name_m]
[name_m]Cyrus[/name_m]
[name_u]Tristan[/name_u]

[name_u]Michael[/name_u] is a family name here too :slight_smile:

My main reservation about using [name_u]Jude[/name_u] is that our last name begins with S. So if there was more than one [name_u]Jude[/name_u] in his class at school (not impossible as its top 100 here) he’d be known as [name_u]Jude[/name_u] S. Which sounds like [name_m]Judas[/name_m] when said aloud. I don’t know if that’s worth worrying about?

Not sure if it’s worth worrying about but I can see the [name_u]Jude[/name_u] S thing making me shy away from a name too.

[name_m]Gideon[/name_m]
[name_m]Levi[/name_m]
[name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] (I know it ends in s, I just really like it with [name_m]Ezra[/name_m])
[name_m]Axel[/name_m]
[name_m]Caleb[/name_m]

[name_f]Maia[/name_f]
[name_f]Junia[/name_f]
[name_f]Tahlia[/name_f]
[name_f]Tabitha[/name_f]
[name_f]Lucia[/name_f]
[name_f]Cecily[/name_f]
[name_f]Marin[/name_f]

For boys I like [name_m]Ezra[/name_m] and [name_u]Jude[/name_u], [name_m]Jonas[/name_m], or [name_m]Abel[/name_m] and for girls I like [name_m]Ezra[/name_m] and [name_f]Opal[/name_f], [name_f]Olive[/name_f], or [name_f]Iris[/name_f].

I totally forgot girls names. I love the name [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] ([name_f]Tilly[/name_f] being my favorite nn). I also like [name_f]Amelia[/name_f].

Others:
[name_u]Vivian[/name_u]
[name_f]Maisie[/name_f]
[name_f]Penelope[/name_f]
[name_f]Elyse[/name_f]
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Claudia[/name_f]

[name_m]Ezra[/name_m] and:
[name_m]Asher[/name_m]
[name_m]Leo[/name_m]
[name_u]Micah[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u]

[name_m]Ezra[/name_m] and:
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f]
[name_f]Ramona[/name_f]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f]
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f]

Boys:

[name_m]Abram[/name_m] or [name_m]Bram[/name_m]
[name_m]Viggo[/name_m]
[name_m]Harvey[/name_m]
[name_m]Simon[/name_m]
[name_m]Gideon[/name_m]

Girls:
[name_f]Eloise[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]
[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Fiona[/name_f]
[name_f]Freya[/name_f]

I would do something longer than four letters like [name_u]August[/name_u]/[name_m]Augustus[/name_m] for a boy and I love [name_f]Geneva[/name_f] for a girl.
I think they’re both very complimentary to [name_m]Ezra[/name_m] :slight_smile:

[name_m]Ezra[/name_m] & [name_m]Reuben[/name_m] is what came immediately to mind for a boy, and something like [name_m]Ezra[/name_m] & [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] or [name_m]Ezra[/name_m] & [name_f]Annaliese[/name_f] would be lovely for a girl - I think [name_u]Jude[/name_u] is a fantastic choice though. Good luck!

Boy ideas:

[name_m]Jonah[/name_m]
