    Eleazar

    Quite a while ago I went through my family tree and up until about 1900 there were a lot of men in my family with the name Eleazar. I don't want a popular name at all. But I don't want a name that people don't know or would be considered weird, or that people will have a lot of trouble with. It's not popular at all, by the looks of it.

    But what's your opinion on it?

    I love Eleazar! It's a name I had actually forgotten about until you just reminded me, so thank you for that!

    It's definitely not popular, but I don't think it is so weird that people would have a problem with it. Apparently Eleazar is a Twilight character, though I'm not a fan of the books/movies personally so I don't know if he is a big character and a good or bad one? Hopefully in a few years Twilight will be mostly forgotten anyway!

    I can see Eleazar fitting in just fine with the more popular Eljah, Ezra and Ezekiel.

    Ooh I like Eleazar! It's definitely distinctive, but it's still familiar and doesn't seem too "out there."

    I read Twilight and saw the movies (just once!) and I don't remember any character by this name, so he must not have been a major character.

    I love Eleazar! He's no more troublesome than Ezekiel or Ephraim in my opinion.
    Reminds me of Elam/Eilam, another Biblical E name that deserves more attention ^^

    I read that it's in twilight, but I've never read or watched it. I have friends who named their daughter from Game of Thrones which I personally hate. I hope this isn't like that... It's the only name I can come up with!

    What middle names would go with Eleazar _________ Ross (our last name)? I think I'd prefer something more common for the middle name, but don't know if that'd flow.
