Hello, ladies! And potential gents.

Excuse my enthusiasm, I used to hang out on the AOL baby names message boards about ten years ago, and never found a substitute when they all closed down!

Of course, now I'm all grown up, 23, married, with twin boys, and another on the way already, heaven help me.


ANYWAYS, I'm due in early April, just hit 14 weeks, so still have plenty of time to go, but... I'm excited, so... Would you be so kind as to give me your opinions on the following names?
All for boys, we have a girl's name already.

Gabriel
Conrad
Micah
Judah
Hezekiah
Asher
Augustin
Janus
Mathias
Ezra
Isaac
Job
Malachai
Naphtali
Tobias


For the record, my boys' names are Ephraim David (EF-rum) and Benaiah Paul (ben-EYE-uh). Thanks so much, looking forward to knowing you!

I agree, you need a more uncommon name to fit the sibset. I also would stay away from the ones that have an "eye" or "eye-uh" sound at the end as they will be too similar to Benaiah. From your list, I would choose either Judah or Mathias as the best fits for your sibset. Although, my favorite names sibset aside from your list are Gabriel and Malachi (spelled this way).

Congrats!! I love all the biblical names!!

Gabriel- Love! Its on my list & love the meaning "God is my Strength"
Conrad- Cute but NMS "Bold counsel"
Micah- I like it but heard it a lot a few years ago. I think ppl thought it was a new version of the always popular Michael. But again I like the meaning "Who is like God"
Judah- Really like this one as well, its not quite so popular and means "Praised"
Hezekiah- I've thought about using this one.. and I think it fits the best with your other boys names and love that it means "God Strengthens"
Asher- Not a fan of it myself, I don't like ASH names for some reason, but a nice meaning "Blessed, Happy"
Augustin- NMS and would be afraid he might get called Augustine which is feminine. But like that it means "Great"
Janus- Not sure if this is meant for a boy or girl but its cute! "God of Beginnings"
Mathias- I love this as well. Not sure if I am bold enough to use it but I love it! Very fitting meaning "Gift of God"
Ezra- A very good book of the bible and I love the name as well. "Help"
Isaac- Isaac, used a lot more than the other names but a strong name! Its too popular for me but its a good name "He will laugh"
Job- This was on my list for a while, if I can talk DH into it I might use it means "Persecuted" but Job of the bible was a strong character & a great man.
Malachai- Love it but can't use it, my cousin swiped it "My messenger"
Naphtali- Never heard of this one before, NMS but it would go with your sibset as well "my wrestler"
Tobias- I like it and the nn Toby, "God is good"

Nope! Benaiah was the general of the army of David, known for his bravery and strength!

Thanks for the input, you guys! For a girl, we'll probably call her Yoheved. Before you say NMS, give it a chance to grow on you, we think it is incredibly beautiful!

It's pronounced yo-HEH-ved. It's the original pronunciation of Jochebed (yuck), who was Moses' mother.
