Jewish names for a boy - expecting our first
My wife and I are expecting our first. Our girl name is Rachel, but we cannot figure out a boy name, even though we have a list of ones we like. We'd appreciate your feedback on this list or suggestions of others. Doesn't have to be Biblical, just Jewish, though those things are almost always redundant.
We agree on (and why it's not the perfect one):
Samuel (don't love Sam as a nickname, which it will inevitably be)
Jonah (maybe getting too popular?; also thinking about using her grandfather's name as a middle, it starts with E, and last name starts with W, so... there you go)
Reuben (probably the favorite, but if the second is a girl, we want to be able to use Rachel, and we don't want two Rs)
Simon (used to love it, but it's lost its appeal in just the past few months, so what will happen over many years?)
She likes (but I think is too popular):
I like (but she thinks are too weird):
We should like (but just don't):
We like but can't use (family members):
That enough data for you? Haha! We'd really appreciate thoughts; we still have a few months to mull it over (and we'll probably find out if it's a boy or a girl eventually, so maybe this will be mute).
