    Alternative to Isaiah/Isaac?

    Hey Berries,
    I really like the Is- beginning of Isaiah and Isaac, but I've become disenchanted with the American (I live in the US) pronunciation of Isaiah. Isaac is just too popular and I don't find it as interesting as Isaiah, though it is still a lovely name. What alternatives would you recommend?

    Also, what vowel-beginning boy's names (esp. E, O, and I) do you like?

    Thanks all,
    LL

    I like Isidore, Isidro, and Issachar but they don't have the same EYEZ- sound as Isaac or Isaiah.

    I'm also the only person in the world who likes Issachar.

    Other vowel names I love for boys, minus the A's and U's you didn't want:
    E: Ezra, Ezriel, Eli, Elazar, Eleazar, Elkhanan/Elchanan, Elkan/Elkin, Emmett, Everett, Evander.
    I: I think I've already listed all the ones I really like. WAIT, no, I lied: I also like Ilan. And my sister has Iskender on her backup list, it's a Turkish variant of Alexander.
    O: Owen, Oren, Ori

    I love Isaiah, and I'm curious about how Brits pronounce it differently than I-Zay-uh.
