The male equivalent of Elizabeth... Hmm.
Here's a list of popular names in Elizabethan England: http://www.britishbabynames.com/blog...han-names.html
I would argue that any boy's name on this list that is still popular today is the male equivalent of Elizabeth.♂ | Samuel ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Silas ◊ Dean ◊ Micah ◊ Thomas ◊ Isaiah
♀ | Helen ◊ Cora ◊ Anne ◊ Jane ◊ Edith ◊ Georgia ◊ Gwen ◊ Catherine ◊ Lydia ◊ Verity

Boaz doesn't always get the best response, but when someone likes it, they really seem to love it! I usually get "IT'S THE BEST NAME EVER!" or "I would positively swoon if I ever met an adorable little Boaz!" OR "Are you crazy?!" or "Please don't name your son that!" and usually nothing in between, hahaha. I usually wouldn't be so bold in my name tastes, but my grandmother was Ruth, and I think the tie is so cute! Plus, I love Beau/Bo. So in her honor, I could be that brave. If it were any other reason, I don't think I'd go for it. It's honestly so out-of-place on my list, but I still adore it. I always have loved the story of Ruth and Boaz, though!
Thanks, ladies! I've tossed around a few more options:
Boaz Elliot Henry
Boaz Emmett Henry (really like this, but I absolutely refuse to do the 2-2-2 syllable count, since my surname is also two syllables. I think it sounds absolutely terrible. Maybe Boaz Emmett Gray, or Boaz Emmett _____? I could easily get into Boaz Emmett Noah, too, which is unfortunate, because it has the same syllable count...)
Boaz Nicholas Henry
Boaz Caspar ____
Boaz Elliot Peter
Boaz William ____/Boaz _____ William
I'm really loving the idea of Boaz _____ Henry, though! I feel like Henry might be my male equivalent of Elisabeth. I try to shove it all over my list as a mn, anyway! I'm the same with Elias or Elliot, though.
If you had to fill in the blank for Boaz _____ Henry, what would you suggest? I'm also loving Boaz Sebastian Henry, Boaz Alexander Henry, and Boaz Emerson Henry...
