I love both. I have a slight personal preference for Ezra (probably thanks to growing up with Better than Ezra), but I really want to see more people use Ephraim/Efram!
Tobias does not strike me as an african american name. Of course, the US doesn't maintain statistics on the ethnicity breakdown of baby names, so I can't say my impression is empirically verifiable.
Are-ee-ell. I blame The Little Mermaid for the ubiquity of the air-ee-ell pronunciation.

If you were using it as a nickname, I'd say Tilly; as a full name, I vote Tillie. As a purely aesthetic matter, I prefer the look of Tilly; the letters seem more balanced. I'm not wild about the...
I like the concept of nicknames. It's less that I want to name a kid one thing but call him/her something else and more that it's nice to have an intimate name that is used by family and friends and...
I prefer the longer Amelia. There's nothing wrong with Mia, but it feels very young to me. Were it my name, I'd prefer the option of Amelia, particularly as an adult.

They strike me, too, as shockingly different styles. And I can't help but beg to differ on the idea of Axe as a nn. I can't hear it without filling in "murderer."
If you're up for suggestions,...
When it comes to your child's name, there's probably no such thing as too picky! I apologize, but I really don't know what's been suggested previously, so I'll just list a few combos that came to...
I like the sound of Cosima Ines. Perhaps you'd also like:

I really like Edmund Warren or Edmund Charles. I prefer Edmund to Carlisle, but Carlisle Abram and Carlisle Alexander both have a nice sound.
I should have included :
These are probably more 80s than 70s…

It'll sound tame for Nameberry, but I've never stopped thinking that Phineas is the coolest name ever.
It depends on the temporal proximity of the event as well as how much damage was wrought by that particular hurricane. Geography matters a bit as well. The closer in time and location and/or the...
I know two adult Richards. One goes by Richard and the other by Rich.

Sorry for any repeats (lots of suggestions makes it hard to keep track of what's been previously mentioned!).
Instead of Donovan, maybe:
Daniel, Donald, Derek, Dane, Dean, Callahan, Sullivan, or...

Maybe there's something wrong with me, but I don't think names are made masculine or feminine by sound alone. A name with a history shouldn't be separated from its origins or its meaning just...

I really like both Oliver and Thomas; I feel like Thomas is almost more surprising than Oliver right now.
