help us with boys names

we are stuck - we like unwerid but not common names - the first two happen to have 1 syllable four letter names but not on purpose so no need to follow a theme - our last name starts with an R and is two syllable - stress on second - both of the boys also have biblically inspired names as well - which not a theme we have to use but all the name we'd considered so far pretty much are - though dh likes many that arent as well

plus to names that can be pronounced by both Spanish and English speakers

Re: help us with boys names

Our son's name is Asher Timothy (Timothy after my husband). Asher is one of the 12 tribes of Judah-- it means happy or blessed. Timothy means honoring God. My DH and I like Biblically inspired names as well. Other boy names we like are:

Michiah- means who is like God?

Azariah- God is strong

Also heard and like the names Judah, Micah, and Zachariah.

We thought about Micah and Judah - ds2 thinks he is Judah now though lol - he even tells people he meets that he's two and Judah - i think its because we were saying the Lion of Judah lol

Re: help us with boys names

Samuel we've considered 3 times now - each one of the boys we have thought about using the name - i like it, i like the meaning and the story but its really common

We are considering Joel and Adan as well (pronounced short a then Dan - basically equal stress on the syllables)

liked Malachi but doesnt fit with our last name or the boys' - I liked Reed as well but dh isnt convinced and the aliteration might be too much - Dh threw out Noah but I didnt like it really - I dont know why - I used to

I like Joel and Simon as well. I love the name Adan but it is pretty popular right now. We had a friend just name their boy Truman. I think it is a great name too.

haha I had no idea - neither my husband or I have ever meet an Adan - my husband compared it to using the name Jesus in English - common in Spanish but very strange in English - i suggested that Adam/Adan was not the same as Jesus but maybe more like Josiah - unusal to use but not the same weight

I like Josiah, Samuel, David, and Noah. We really considered Dominic for DS. It means "in God's hands". My BIL and SIL are considering Malcom and I like that name too.
