I love this name and always have, ever since noticing it in the Bible. I have also always loved Hazel. I wish this was a girl's name, as I love Hebrew names!

I know it's very close to Hazel but I actually think that makes this name even more attractive. It's like the masculine version of Hazel! Also I think it would be pretty cool for a boy to have the nickname Haze.
