Need cool single-syllable middle name to follow Zacharias

My current fave is Beau, but not sure DH will go for it. Want something short and quite funky, but not an abbreviation, to counteract the length/solemnity of Zacharius. Our surname starts with an M and ends in a Y.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated - baby due in a week!

Kentigen - long I know, but follows the beat quite nicely
Ace - anglo saxon for unity
Arth - a s for like an eagle
Red
Torr
Wulf/Wolf
Wurt

Alvis
Buster
Elvis
Seth
Zebedee (cos it would be great to have initials ZZ!)
Zadok
Zain
Zoo/Zou

(I've just been looking at some anglo saxon names - some fab ones in there but also all sorts of weird things to call your darling new baby - anger, kills, enemy, hateful, horrible, venom...)

Thanks all.

Bob. It's a winner.

James - nice but a bit dull

Blue - really like, but it's the name of my in-laws' dog, hence DH veto. Shame.

Quinn, Jude, Finn, Tate - all on the shortlist but not quite right I don't think. Quinn maybe...

Fox - liking it. Got a feeling DH won't be keen.

ZZ initials - nice. Did think about Zebedee as a first name. But would need a single syllable Z for middle.

Elvis - we called the bump this for a while!

Theo - Theodore's a family name and we were going to use this but DH isn't keen. Shame he has to have opinions.

Any more?

Oh, and I spelled Zacharias wrong in the body of the post. Zacharias NOT Zacharius. Oops!

WockComble - you can't have Bob, not allowed!

sorry, it's short/pet name for Robert - you have to play by your own rules!grin
