Thread Hijacking - Hebrew boys names???

Reading through the thread about Hebrew girls names got me buzzing about Hebrew boys names. DD is Noa, and we are struggling with a name for her baby brother who will arrive next month. We are thinking about Ezra or Zeke, but are still hunting for others.

TIA.....

We're Jewish and my first DSs middle name is Nathaniel. His first name is Anthony (because I have always loved that name) so I wanted Hebrew middle name.

But when I had DS2, I fell in love with the name Ephram (sometimes spelled Ephraim). So that's what I named him. And we have yet to run into anyone else with that name!!

I have an Israeli friend who just named her ds Amichai (ah-mee-CHAI with guttural "H"). They call him Ami (which I think is adorable).

His mn is Moshe (Moe-SHE -Moses in Hebrew).

My sons are Benjamin and Samuel. My DH is Jonathan. If this one is a boy he will be Judah. We also have Asher on backup.

Other names we considered were:
Levi
Joshua
Zebulun
Reuben
Raphael
Ezekiel
Ezra
Gabriel
Hosea
Isaiah
Joel
Jonah
Jonas
Solomon
Tobias
Simon

Isn't Asher considered a Hebrew name?

ETA: Perhaps I should have read the first line of the last post

We are having the same darn problem! Ds's name is the same as dh's. Dd's name is Eleora (God is my light). Coming up clueless for this little guy. Well, I have lots of ideas (mostly already listed), but dh won't agree to any of them.
