    Ezra or Marcello?

    We are actively trying to conceive baby #2. We have a 22 month old son named Lorenzo & we have been talking about names & the two we like are Ezra & Marcello but we can't seem to find a middle name we really like for either of them which is leaving us up in the air. If you could leave some suggestions that would be great, last name is Calderon. Thanks in advance!

    Ezra (blank) Calderon or Marcello (blank) Calderon. With a 2-?-3 syllable count, I'd prefer Ezra since Marcello would give you a kind of monotone 3-?-3 syllable count. It sounds best if the entire full name had varied syllables. I'll link the 1 syllable middle name list for you. Also, be careful to make sure the initials don't spell anything pronounceable which shouldn't be too hard (E-?-C).

    We only came up so far for them Ezra Joseph & Marcello Anthony. Both middle names have family origins but I wanted to open up to other names. Even first names all together that just would make a good sib set with Lorenzo.

    Ok. Lorenzo's kind of a cool exotic name compared with the more classical traditional middle names you've chosen. This may help:

    Thanks for the suggestions. I like Matteo & Miguel from those. I am still stuck on Marcello & Ezra. Ezra is more of my SO's choice, I like the way Marcello flows & that it is also Italian like Lorenzo's. I wouldn't be pronouncing it like mar-chello though, it would be mar-sell-o.
