FantasyandPrayer Says:


Possibly my favourite boys name I've seen, with a lovely meaning and much less popular than my other close favourite, Ethan.

I agree! Those kinds of old-vintage but new-sounding names are my favorite and tend to be the ones I gravitate towards.

vintageluvs Says:


Love this underused name. Its so vintage that it sounds new, especially with revivals like Augustus, Caius, Noah, Tobias, etc.

This is a great, underused Biblical choice! I'm not sure I would ever be bold enough to use it, but if I did I would definitely use the nn Lazar (prn. laser).
