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!

I'd avoid middle names ending in s with Zacharias.

I think Quinn is very cool and sounds great with Zacharias. I actually prefer Quinn to Zach (if you're planning to shorten to that).

'Zane' for the ZZ initials? Or Zeus? Zev*?

*Hebrew for 'wolf', apparently.

Quinn is good, or John maybe?

Finn maybe? IMO something ending with an N would sound best with Zacharias and your last name (which in my head is Murray or Murphy - if it's neither that may change my opinion) grin.

I know a little Quinn and have never once thought about a fanny confused
Lovely name imo

Really liking Quinn though. But does it make anyone think of quim, ie a fanny?

Yes Kit is fab, but a good friend of mine's son is called Kit so I couldn't steal it. In fact she was the one who came up with the name Beau.

Agree that Zacharias Gus for example is too 's'y.

Yes it has to be Kit.
Or maybe Beck.
But not Duke everyone's faithful mutt from their childhood

Love Chase, but I think the 's' ending is too much like the s at the end of Zacharias.

Zacharias Quinn is great.

Zacharias Flint

Apologies if am repeating other suggestions:

Ted (has a Theodore connection too...)
Eli (pronounced EE-LIE not Ellie! sorry, 2 syllables but goes really well with Zacharius)

Duke is fabulous!!!!!

WonkyWilly Thu 29-Nov-12 20:29:40

LittleDonkin Thu 29-Nov-12 20:24:05

Greensleeves has some amazing suggestions! I love Kit, Keir and Chance!

WockComble yes, of course I was joking! but now you have to use Luke - the force will be with him! grin

WockComble Thu 29-Nov-12 19:25:46

Um, I think maybe you were too, amazingmum. I've self-banned use of emoticons so my sarcasm can be tricky to read...

WockComble Thu 29-Nov-12 19:24:35

Um, I was joking!

amazingmumof6 Thu 29-Nov-12 19:09:05

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
