    Down To Two Names

    my brother and his wife are down to two names if there baby is a boy:


    Simeon Nelson VS Zephaniah Nelson (nn Zeph)

    Nelson is a family name so it is set.

    You have two fine Biblical names as your choices. I think Zephaniah Nelson is my preference. I also like Zephan as a nn. While I like Simeon, it's too similar to the word "simian" or ape-like.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Another vote for Zephaniah! It's unique and gorgeous, and the Z automatically gives it the "cool" factor.

    Zephaniah sounds more rad on its own, plus it doesn't slur with Nelson like Simeon does. I'd be stoked to meet a little Zeph.

    Another vote for Zephaniah! Simeon is a cool name, but there's the "simian" thing and also that the matching N-endings and the slurring N ending-and-beginning of Simeon Nelson are not ideal.

    Best wishes to your brother and sister-in-law!
