    thoughts??

    I love the name Malachi however our last name is Nye, like Bill Nye the science guy...would it be weird if we named our son Malachi? And does anyone have any thoughts for a middle name?

    I wouldn't name my child something that rhymes with the last name.

    Unfortunately, when Malachi and Nye are heard together, the prominent long I sound drowns out the rest of the name.
    Mother of three teenagers: (1) Daniel Glen, (2) Timothy Austin, and (3) Rebecca Jane... all middle names honor family... 3rd generation mn Jane. (A second girl would have been Susanna Eve and a third boy, maybe Isaac...)

    I agree with the previous posters about avoiding a first name that rhymes with your last name.

    Instead of Malachi, what about Malachy, the Irish version of Malachi? Malachy is pronounced MAL-uh-kee, which doesn't rhyme with your last name.

    Good luck! :-)

    I love Jill's suggestion of Malachy Nye!
