Well I nearly have settled on a dd name but stuck between these two for a ds. Which would you pick and why? I already have a ds called Eli.

I can't see the name Cassius without thinking of Cassius Clay - aka Mohammed Ali the boxer's original name. Though he was VERY beautiful in his day....

DB is a Cassius, DS is Eli and I LOVE Ezra for another DS. smile

Charlieandthechocolatecake does your DB like being called Cassius? I don't mind the Mohammed Ali connections at least people will be familiar with the name from him....but does he pronounce it Cash us or Cass ee us, as I want to use the latter pronounciation and I guess people with associate the pronounciation the way he did!

Lockets that song is brilliant I can imagine how a little Cassius would love it and I'm sure little boys would love to share a name with a famous boxer. I think I'm nearly set on Cassius at the moment. grin

DB is only 7. He loves his name and tells everybody he's going to be a boxer when he grows up! He also has a poster of Muhammed Ali in his bedroom! Its pronounced Cass-ee-us. He also goes by Cass, Cassy or 'medium romantic' (dont ask!)

I love him and his name so much its tattooed on my lower back along with his middle names which go very well with his first.

Can you tell how much I worship the ground he walks on? smile
