    Hold up. Sorry. My American accent doesn't like the 'iy' part here. zehn-oh-vee-ih, with a short I sound? or a long I sound? When I say 'way,' the dipthong is wah-ee.

    @gailk, sorry, my original post was a bit confusing with the girl's names included. I thought about leaving them off, but figured people would ask since I mentioned them anyway. And yes, Dash-ell, haha.

    Picks from this wave:

    Gideon
    Damien (I feel like this name is REALLY popular? Too much YA lit interaction, I think...)
    Ashby
    Holmes
    Nicolai
    Everard (@saracita00, WHERE did you find this? I LOVE it!)
    Sterling
    Pierce
    Jacobe (@chrisco, pronunciation?)
    Alastair

    You guys are coming up with some great names!

    EDIT: @mrstoon, I see Bradbury in your signature there! Scrolling up it caught my eye and I was like HOLDUP. WHO DID THAT. Love it! So cool! Now I need to read more of his books, so I can feel better about considering that name...

    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    Uh oh, it's hard to explain because there are letters in Russian ABC that don't exist in English. Zeen-oh-vee-ih/zen-oh-vee-ih(pick one you like better, in different parts of Russia they pronounce it differently, with ee or short e sound), very short "IH"...By "ih/iy" I mean something similar to "y" part in "joy".
    OK, I googled and found a Russian pronunciation guide, their prn is very similar to mine; here are the cyrillic letters, the alphabet and Zenoviy ends in cyrillic letter "Й"(NOT И), you can find the symbol and maybe listening to prn(audio) will help you understand what I mean by "ih".
    Link is http://listen2russian.com/lesson01/a/. If you are interested in full name, it's Зеновий/Зиновий in cyrillic.
    Sorry for being stupid and not able to explain correctly, I hope you aren't mad at me.

    Jacobe is (juh-COH-bee), so the stress is on a different syllable than Jacob. There are also spellings Jacobi, Jacoby, and I believe there is a Jacopi : )
    Raphael Benedict-Charles Dominic-Jude Balthasar-Damian Leonard-Seth Matthias

    Lucia Marguerite-Genevieve Reine-Maura Francesca

    Honor-Emilia-Afton-Maeve-Fleur-Ophelia-Moses-Emrys-Constantine-Arthur

    Everard is so handsome and princely (I very nearly just nicked it for my own list...)! But the 'ever-hard' joke might come up quite a lot, at school especially...
