    Keep it or lose it?

    These are some names on my list that I've been thinking about. I'd like you to tell me which ones you'd keep, and which ones you'd get rid of. Feel free to comment on each one or rank them best to worse, or just tell me which ones you'd keep. Please keep in mind that we don't live in an English speaking country, I feel this makes a difference.


    Zohar
    Till
    Zev
    Felician
    Florent
    Moses
    Adlai
    Egon
    Magnus
    Ezri
    Ephraim
    Bertram
    Dov
    Wolf

    I looove Adlai, Wolf and Florent.
    I'd get rid of:
    Zohar - Might be different in your language but as a Greek/English speaker it sounds a bit like a villain name to me? Would be cute with the nickname Harry though
    Till - I personally wouldn't use any name that wouldn't work in English, since it's such a widespread language. Till just makes me think of the word
    Moses - A bit too religious for my tastes. I'd be uncomfortable having the name as an atheist, and you never know what your kid will grow up being
    Ezri - I feel like it'd get mixed up with Ezra a lot. Maybe not where you're from, but if he talked to friends online or he moved to an English-speaking country
    Again it's hard to judge without being from the same country so! Forgive any cultural misunderstandings. Love your first son's name by the way.

    As someone who lives in the US, I have no idea how popular these names are where you live. To me, these names all have interesting sounds and seem easy for an English speaker to pronounce. To help narrow down the names, you might want to consider the popularity where you live and if you baby will be around English speakers often.

    These ones are my personal favorites:

    Till - I like the sound of Till, but I think I'd like Tiller even more, especially since it's more removed from the English word "til."
    Zev - A lovely Hebrew name with the cool Z. I like the nickname Zevey.
    Moses - I am not religious, so I don't think Moses would ever work for me, but it's a pity because I love Moses. Such a strong, warm name.
    Ezri - I do prefer Ezra, but Ezri is cute, as well. It feels more feminine than Ezra.
    Bertram - Much clunkier than I usually like, but Bertie is just so cute.

    Felician
    Florent
    Adlai
    Egon
    Magnus
    Ezri
    Ephraim
    Bertram
    Miron

    I think these go the best with Hjörtur (which I love the meaning of btw) and I like the sounds the best. Magnus and Egon are my favorites but I'm not sure how popular they are in your country compared to Hjörtur.
