    Hmm. I'm not sure where you got your information, but Im not finding any reference to Elyott as a Hebrew name. On its own I don't think it's terrible, by the repeating "y" in Rhymer Elyott looks awful to me. I understand your reasoning for liking Rhymer, but just seems so literal to me. Anyway, if you want a Hebrew name that starts with an E, I suggest-
    Ephraim
    Eli
    Elroy
    Emilio
    Ezra
    Ezri
    Elias
    Eliel
    Eliat (same pronunciation, correct spelling)
    Elihu
    Trying, trying, trying

    Current favorites:
    Boy: Asa Guillaume, Barnaby August
    Girl: Apolline Iris- Polly, Clothilde Juno- Chloe

    I love word names. Always have... plus my husband's line of work is very important to him. It is Hebrew. The pronunciation of it says it all. I've checked multiple baby name sites and I also have a baby name app on my phone that all confirm it is. I just double checked to make sure I wasn't seeing things haha. What if I spelled it without the y? There is a spelling variation that has the same pronunciation and is Hebrew.

    Elyott and Eliott.
    I actually like the meaning of Eliott better. I could have my pronunciation too. Does Rhymer Eliott look better than Rhymer Elyott?

    I'm sorry that people feel the need to criticize Rhymer when you clearly have made your decision and clearly haven't asked for opinions on the first name! Sorry, needed to get that off my chest lol!

    I wouldn't worry about the spelling of the middle name. Do what looks best to you. It's his middle name so no one is ever going to have to pronounce or spell it other than you guys (his parents!).

    That's part of coming on a naming forum... people give opinions, which may or may not agree with your own. I'd hope everyone would appreciate that it can be quite useful. After all, I've thought about names in such a new way after reading these forums!

    I would agree that Reimer would probably age a bit better (what if he doesn't like music or want it as part of his life?). I also tend to prefer subtlety over blatant references, though. I like the idea that it would be a reference you wouldn't be able to pick up on until it is said aloud... kinda like a well-formed joke that you cannot understand the punchline of without a bit of wit. However, if you like Rhymer, go for it. As for the mn... I'm also not big on the repeated 'y'. I think most people (myself included) would not pronounce Elyott (did I spell it right?) the same way you listed. However, middle names are also not that important. After all, probably only 10 people in this world know mine.

    If you are not 100% sure if Elyott is a real Hebrew name (and if that even matters to you), I'd recommend asking a Hebrew speaker (maybe there are some on this board... or a Jewish friend might know Hebrew)... Many of the websites list names incorrectly, so do be careful. My husband's Persian, and after looking through lists of Persian names online and making lists, he'll often go through and point to ones that are listed for the wrong gender, are too old-fashioned, or are grossly misspelled... This doesn't matter to everyone, but if it does to you, I'd recommend just double checking.
