    I like Job, but I agree that people might have a hard time pronouncing it.

    I think Jude is a great and usable name!

    What about Jove?

    Because, as others pointed out before me, Jude has more modern associations as well, so the biblical one isn't quite as overbearing. IMO.

    (Not that you aren't right for calling me out! My knowledge of the Bible is limited. But that is my only association for Job, whereas Jude makes me think of the Beatles, Jude Law, and the Bible, prob in that order. Job Marcellus is super handsome for what it's worth!)

    Makes sense!

    And, thanks! We love it. Marcellus is for a beloved family member who passed away, and we liked the short then long of the two names together. I'm hoping to bring Job back with positive associations. hehe.
    Our sweet kiddos include:

    Amaré Elyse
    We pronounce her name Am-uh-RAY, as you would say, "I am a ray of sunshine."

    Job Marcellus
    We call him Joby.
