What names are like Enoch?!

So I am currently obsessed with the name [name_m]Enoch[/name_m] for a number of reasons … the Biblical character, the meaning, the sound of it, the uniqueness.

The problem is, none of my other boy names (or girl names) are even remotely similar to it. I mean, I have [name_m]Becket[/name_m], [name_m]Harrison[/name_m], and maybe [name_u]Dillon[/name_u] on my list! So it’s not like I have a super specific aesthetic, but they’re not like [name_m]Enoch[/name_m] for sure. [name_f]My[/name_f] girl names are [name_u]Ivy[/name_u] and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f], with a thousand alternatives that I cannot settle on. :stuck_out_tongue:

But anyways, what names are like [name_m]Enoch[/name_m]? [name_m]Boy[/name_m] or girl names are welcome, but especially boy names. I’m a little surprised I like this name at all, given that I don’t love [name_m]Malachi[/name_m], [name_m]Ezekiel[/name_m], [name_u]Micah[/name_u], or [name_u]Elijah[/name_u], all of which feel similar if more popular, and a lot of names along this line feel very old-mannish to me … [name_u]Amos[/name_u], [name_m]Otis[/name_m], and [name_u]Moses[/name_u] being examples of that.

I remember pronouncing abinadi ah-bin-NAUGHTY :joy: for anyone wondering, I guess it’s ah-BIN-uh-die.

I’ll also add Amaleki, [name_u]Amos[/name_u], Jarom, [name_m]Jonas[/name_m], [name_m]Naphtali[/name_m], [name_m]Shem[/name_m], Teancum, & [name_u]Zion[/name_u]

I kid you not I know someone who named their child [name_m]Enoch[/name_m] and he now has a sibling [name_m]Harrison[/name_m]. It’s not my sibset to share but pretty much all the siblings fall into your kind of all over the place style. So I say I’d just stick with those names you already know and love.
