    What does he think is so bad about Sebastian?! This is one of my absolutely favorite names but it rhymes with our last name so I can't use it. This is SUCH a COOL name! It has cool nns (Sebi, Bash, Bastian, Seb) and I love it even more (which I didn't think was possible) because it has personal meaning for you two!!! It would be so sad to me if you didn't get to use this name.

    Sorry, I don't actually have any suggestions, I just had to speak up for Sebastian. We also loved Maximilian for our son before he was born (because we love the name but also because it's the name of a Polish saint who has a brave story), but again -- rhymes with our last name and has some of the same sounds so it would have been super rhymey and repetitive. That's another top name on my list though. How I would LOVE to meet a little Maximilian or Sebastian.

    Also, though you can't argue your mother's point about Titus, I think it's a common enough name (or at least commonly known) that most people do not think that instinctively. And also, I actually think Luke goes quite well with Timothy, which is common but not overly used. Both great classic names in my opinion.

    A lot of the names on your list are great options. Elijah sounds particularly good with Timothy.

    I would probably avoid Titus and Tyrus. If your other son is Timothy, the names sound a bit overly precious together. I would also avoid Cohen, since it is a surname that denotes a special status in the Jewish religion. If you go with Joshua, there will probably always be one or two other Joshuas in his classes at school , if that makes a difference to you.

    What about Caedmon, Philemon, or Ezekiel. They are all a bit more obscure names from Christianity. Oh, and Obadiah is a cool name with the nickname Obe.

    I would love to see Phillip with Timothy! Titus is not my fav simply because I always get hung up on the first 3 letters of the name. From your list, I love:

    I love:


    Maybe Joshua but I prefer Josiah and maybe Callum.

    It's a pity for Phineas, Gabriel, Thaddeus, Solomon, Theodore & Isaiah.
