    Would it be possible to get away with...

    naming your son Nazareth? Or is that just WAY too far fetched?

    A little out there. But sounds good. I'd consider it but it's not my style.

    I think you could get away with it, but I would use it as a middle name. What do you name a sibling to Nazareth?

    ETA: Nicknames could be (these will be a tad stretchy) Nate, Nat, Ari, Zan, or Rhett.

    I've spent way too much time buried in the SSA lists of the last 130 years, but with that caveat it's out there but probably not way too out there. I think I've seen it used by small numbers of kids (like 5 or so) in some years. Nazar is used in Russian and Nazario in Spanish and Italian, and Nazarius was a late Latin name.

    Not sure it lends itself to nicknames...I agree the sound is pleasing.

    It's TOO out there for my tastes and it's very religious, which would make me uncomfortable.... but if those two things don't bother you then use it
