[name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] [name_m]Conrad[/name_m] is my very favorite.

I chose both [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] options, plus the [name_m]Grant[/name_m] ianto one (you might have to pronounce it for someone first but I like the sound!) plus [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] [name_m]Conrad[/name_m]… The only ones I didn’t care for were the ones with the first middle being one syllable as well, and grant [name_u]Owen[/name_u] (it sounds like grant and own, a bit wordy).

[name_f]Kate[/name_f] - which ones are one syllable? Because I totally pronounce all of them with more than one syllable. EFF-rum, EYE-zack, EE-uhn, YAHN-toe, eh-LYE-shah, eh-LYE-jah, OH-wen, OS-car, EZ-rah, etc.?

I do really like the [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] options, and I love the namesake of [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] in the Bible, but I already have two forms of it ([name_u]Elias[/name_u], [name_u]Elliot[/name_u]) on my list as middles, so I feel like I should opt for [name_u]Elisha[/name_u] instead. Besides, I do really love [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_u]Elisha[/name_u] [name_m]Conrad[/name_m]…

I really like [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] [name_m]Conrad[/name_m], [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] [name_m]Saxon[/name_m], and [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Ezra[/name_m] [name_m]Saxon[/name_m] with [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Ezra[/name_m] [name_m]Saxon[/name_m] being my favorite. I think the combo is super handsome.

Thanks, Berries!

I think I’ve managed to narrow it down a little–[name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_u]Elisha[/name_u] [name_m]Saxon[/name_m], [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Conrad[/name_m], [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Ephraim[/name_m] [name_m]Conrad[/name_m], and [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] [name_m]Conrad[/name_m] are all out. [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] [name_m]Conrad[/name_m] was second in the poll, but I’m just not feeling it.

Any other thoughts or opinions?

I voted for [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_u]Elisha[/name_u] [name_m]Conrad[/name_m]. [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] seems to be getting popular as both a first and middle name, at least in my area, and [name_u]Elisha[/name_u] just feels more fresh.
