Ezra because it's a short, hard-to-mispronounce, underutilized biblical name. Having been a child in the 90s, Better Than Ezra didn't hurt either.
And I love Phineas. I've loved it since I read A Separate Peace. How anyone could read that book and not love Phineas' easy confidence and incredibly kind nature is beyond me (though it certainly doesn't guarantee liking the name). Naming a boy Phineas and calling him Finny...it still appeals to me. But we have a fur-child with a name that's much too close to Finny for that to ever work!1 amazing son: Theodore IsaacWhy yes, I probably should be working!

I don't get giving boys names to girls. I hate having to question if some names will soon become too feminine or complete unisex names.

Surname/Boys names on girls - I feel like people who do this are terribly misguided. Wether there goal is to be "different" or for their daughter to be a "tomboy" there are better ways of finding a name that is unique/tomboyish without taking male names and surnames and sticking them on little girls. What happened to pretty names on girls? There is nothing pretty about the name Peyton or Riley. I don't understand what made people think they'd be good names for a little girl.Violet Gray
