Ezra or Marcello?
We are actively trying to conceive baby #2. We have a 22 month old son named Lorenzo & we have been talking about names & the two we like are Ezra & Marcello but we can't seem to find a middle name we really like for either of them which is leaving us up in the air. If you could leave some suggestions that would be great, last name is Calderon. Thanks in advance!
Ezra (blank) Calderon or Marcello (blank) Calderon. With a 2-?-3 syllable count, I'd prefer Ezra since Marcello would give you a kind of monotone 3-?-3 syllable count. It sounds best if the entire full name had varied syllables. I'll link the 1 syllable middle name list for you. Also, be careful to make sure the initials don't spell anything pronounceable which shouldn't be too hard (E-?-C).
We only came up so far for them Ezra Joseph & Marcello Anthony. Both middle names have family origins but I wanted to open up to other names. Even first names all together that just would make a good sib set with Lorenzo.
Ok. Lorenzo's kind of a cool exotic name compared with the more classical traditional middle names you've chosen. This may help:

You could also look at continuing the subtle -O ending with your next son's name with this list.
Thanks for the suggestions. I like Matteo & Miguel from those. I am still stuck on Marcello & Ezra. Ezra is more of my SO's choice, I like the way Marcello flows & that it is also Italian like Lorenzo's. I wouldn't be pronouncing it like mar-chello though, it would be mar-sell-o.
I think the very Italian Marcello (mar-CHELL-o) sounds wierd with such a Spanish last name. Marcelo would be a more logical pick and it wouldn't be mispronounced all the time.
Ezra is a nice name but feels different in style from Romantic, Catholic, Latino, more unusual Lorenzo/Marcelo. I think it's more interesting to pick a name that honours your heritage but still works in English, like Lorenzo.
Lorenzo & Ezequiel
Lorenzo & Leonardo
Lorenzo & Maximo
Lorenzo & Maximiliano
Lorenzo & Marco
Lorenzo & Mateo
Lorenzo & Gonzalo
Lorenzo & Manolo
Lorenzo & Nicolás
Lorenzo & Rodrigo
Lorenzo & Emilio
Then please don't use the spelling Marcello. It's kind of disrespectful to take a name from other culture and mispell it / mispronounce it.

Thank you for the suggestions! The difficult thing is finding a name his family hasn't yet used, many of those listed above have been used in the family. His Spanish side is huge & goes for names like that. I do like Emilio & Matteo very much though!
I wasn't aware I was misspelling it. A friend I know has his named spelt Marcello & is not pronounced Mar-chello. My apologies. That is also why I came on here to see how the spelling would work better.
