I wouldn't name two sons Micah and Michael, but cousins, eh. Sounds fine to me.
For some reason, Bavo sounds like an old-fashioned OTC medicine to me, not a happy association.
I teach kids, have for over 25 years. I don't think Bavo would be thanking his parents for his name.

Ezra is a great name.
So many names are Hebrew in origin. I don't happen to view names as off-limits because of ancestry.
Go for it!
Hadley and Quinn are the only ones I dislike.
Sophie and Tamsin I love.
I don't find these boring; I find them solid names. I guess compared to Tundra, they are bland, but that is OK!
Lovely strong creative choice! I would love to meet a Taliesin.
Never ever be ashamed of having good taste! :)
Well, I see your point! I've been fond of some great Jimmys, but it is not a great name on its own. Chuck is my own personal hell name.
Male name, definitely, which means that celebrities will flock to give the name to their daughters.
Great twists, but I must be in a midcentury mood!

It's possible this has something to do with the fact that I am now past my child-bearing years, so while I am just as nuts about names as ever, I know I am not going to be naming a child.
Just posted a female version. The male list is harder to find. More male names from the 40's -70's still repulse me, such as (no offense meant) Gary and Larry.
But there are some I've grown fond...
That's weird. I see a poll on my screen and someone responded to it?
Poll: Dated Names I Now Like
I must have been on nameberry too much, but I am enjoying many so-called dated names that I used to despise.
Some I still can't stand.
But I've put the ones I now like on this poll. They are...
Lovely! Just like a boy named Martha.
PS I actually do not believe in these posts anymore. What about a girl named.... (Chuck, Donald, Fritz), etc.
Since they are bad for my blood pressure, I...

I like some of these. But Gayettta and Curvin and Cleason, wow, those are terrible!

So many factors make up my love or hatred of a certain name: the sound, appearance, length, nationality, nicknames, associations, literary connections, others with that name I've known.....
If I could rename the Duggar kids, I would not.
I would urge them to practice responsible birth control in a horribly over-populated world.
And I would buy them a spell-checker.
Grady is cheerful, ruddy, amiable, Irish, youthful.
Heddy or Hedy is darling, but if you live in the US and plan to send your child to public school, I would rethink.
Any name with head in it will be ripped apart by the boys. I teach high school....

Well, there are the nasty ones like Adolf and Hitler, Crippen and Manson, etc.
Churchill (though I love it, so who knows)
What is funny in reading all the...

Gazillions of boys are named Henry anyway!
It is a great name - clearly, since you both love it!
Just be honest about it and go for it.
Chances are one will be Hank and another Hal or Henri...
Colin is nice, but I've taught a whole bunch of them and have two nephews named Colin (ages late 20's and mid teens).
I like Christopher/Kit/Kip, but alas, not Chris.
That is very odd. Is it a Disney prince name and I don't know it?
Maybe some people thought it was macho sounding, like thorns?
It is definitely female, from Sweet Briar.
PS People who know...
