    Rugged, spiritual middle for Zion

    My husband and I have long been in agreement that the name of our first son will be Zion. The name came to me in a dream when I was a teenager, and it was a very spiritual experience. I've always had it paired with Anthony or Nathaniel, and it's only in the past two years or so that I've built up the rest of my list and really discovered my naming style. Now with potential siblings Alice Willow, Ophelia Fawn, and Solomon Fable, as well as Caspian and Lucy, my Zion combos just don't seem to fit in. They're too solemn, too flat, and too traditional.

    I love word names especially in the middle slot. In this particular case, I'm also drawn to names with spiritual meanings, pertaining to enlightenment, connection, truth, etc.

    I'd love to capture the imagery and feelings from my original dream: Impossibly tall, rugged, craggy mountains cloaked in brilliant white snow, crisp air as cold and clear as water, and a sort of deep breathless silence, a sense of presence, of the divine. I'm not sure if that can all be summed up into one name, but I'd like to try.

    Thanks Berries! You guys are the best

    Ooh, love the imagery. Westfall is the only thing I can think of right now. I think Zion Westfall would sound nice.

    I'll have a hunting party and see what I come up with. Pregnancy brain is bad though, so don't count on too much

    You're looking for something literally numinous.
