    Hebrew boys' names: Elan, Eliezer, Gilad, Nadav or Zev?

    My husband and I are looking for an unusual (in the U.S.) Hebrew name for our baby boy. We want it to be a name that is easy for most Americans to pronounce (although we recognize not all of the ones on our list will be easy to pronounce just by sight). We don't want an especially common name but we also don't want one that strikes people as so unusual it's just strange. I would love to know which of these names do you prefer (or not prefer) and why?

    Elan (pronounced ee-LAHN)
    Eliezer (nn Izzy)
    Gilad (pronounced gee-LAHD)
    Nadav (pronounced (na-DAHV)

    Middle name will be Lior (pronounced lee-OR). Our daughter's name is Noa.

    Eliezer is awesome, but I think I like Gilad the most with Noa.

    Girls' names are a struggle.

    I like Eliezer, but it sounds too much like Eliza and Elijah for actual usage.

    I love Zev Lior with sister Noa!

    I love Gilad and Nadav. I actually knew an Israeli family who had boys with these names, and they both were adorable. Nadav was usually called "Davi" (Dah-vee) which was sweet!
