    John?

    We are still very early in, but I was thinking on boy names so I am wondering What are your thoughts on the name John? My husband's name is Giovanni and his father is Juan. All forms of John. Our other sons' have biblical names: Jonah Joseph, Levi Benjamin and Isaiah Daniel. So, while I thought about Ian (considered Ian Luke)... I am thinking Ian is going to sound off, with brothers who have Biblical names. So hubby asks, what about John Luke. I have never really considered John, but it is starting to grow on me some.

    However I am not sure how it sounds woth Luke, and hubby thinks it would be great to call him the name togetehr "John Luke". We live in the south So, what are your thoughts on John, and what are some other middle names that would be a good choice, maybe something a little fresher. We are conservatice Christians, so using biblical names are fine, but I would like the name to sound good, strong and classic Any ideas?
    Thanks for your input!

    John Luke doesn't sound right to me because the french version, Jean-Luc, is so much more familiar to me. I did really like Ian Luke from your other thread. I think somebody had suggested Jonathan Luke which I also like more than just John Luke. John seems a little plain compared to Jonah, Levi and Isaiah.

    Some of my favorite biblical names are Benjamin, Jeremy, Elijah, Silas, Timothy.

    I love Silas, but our last name starts with the "ES" sound so, I am not sure that would sound good. I also like Ezra. Ezra Luke or Ezra John.

    Hi!! Congratulations! I just saw your other post on your pregnancy. (Inbox me if you can!)

    I like John a lot:

    John Patrick
    John Lucas (I love Luke, but not with John as much)
    John Samuel

    How about Evan Luke? Evan is the Welsh form of John.

    Ezra John is a lovely name.
