Ira. Why and why not?
Ira is my latest guilty pleasure for a boy, thanks to a Berry naming her new son Ira Theodore. I'm very certain that my boyfriend would say no, but I'd like to get everyone's thoughts on this name anyway.
Ezra is one of my all time favorite boy names. But my uncle just named his daughter Ezri so I can't use it anymore. I was SO crushed. Ira seems like a good alternative to Ezra... Ezra is in the top 200 if I'm not mistaken, and Asa is in the top 600, so why not Ira? It seems like a solid vintage choice to me.
So how do you feel about Ira? Does it have potential or not? Is it "too" vintage/dated?18 | Name lover | No babies, just planning.
