- It must be biblical.
- It can't be too unusual.
- It can't be too popular.
- It must be more than 4 letters & at least 2 syllables.
- It can't begin with: G, B, D or J.
- It can't be: Andrew, Caleb, Elijah, Isaac, Matthew, Micah, Michael, Noah, Peter, Reuben, Samuel, Simon, Stephen, Timothy, Tobias, Zachariah or Zephaniah.
- It must go with John as a middle name.

You have 6-11 weeks. I hereby abdicate all responsibility. wink

I think you should go for Jonathon (fab name) and use Levi for the middle name.

Jonathon Levi (JLB)

Simeon sounds and looks a bit odd to me, and I think would get mispronounced and spelled all the time.

I'd pronounce Aaron as Air-ron not A-run (but see above!)

We were going to call ds2 Ezra. Ezra John sounds cool to me too.

Could you have 2 middle names so you can have a J name and avoid the JJB initials? One of my friends did this as the names she wanted spelt HOB so she added another to make HOSB.

I think we might have a name! It's one that I liked & DH wasn't keen on but we agreed that we'd start trying out a few names & this one's grown on him.

Absolutely noone is allowed to say anything negative because I'm too easily swayed & will get put off it! but we like Asher! It's such a relief that we finally have a name. I'll cry if I come up with a reason not to use it! blush

Great choice!

(Shame about Melchizedek though) wink

Ok, I could give you an endless list, or direct you to

http://christianity.about.com/od/christainbabyboynames/a/boynamesab.htm

but obviously, the answer is Barak.

(Although I also like Asher, Ezra, Emmanuel (to be known as Manny), Judah, Marcus, Reuben and Theophilus).

EldritchCleavage Mon 08-Apr-13 13:25:27

Oh, cross-post!
Lovely.

I love Asher and know a marvellous one. Can I just say, I was first on this thread to say Asher, so I shall consider myself having named a baby grin

AnOeufUniversallyEggnowledged Mon 08-Apr-13 14:29:53

Great name. Really. grin

MrsJamin Mon 08-Apr-13 15:28:51

Ah, good choice! Well done.

ItsallisnowaFeegle Mon 08-Apr-13 15:32:54

Lovely name OP!

abbyfromoz Mon 08-Apr-13 15:37:20

Yay! I think i already mentioned but Asher is my beautiful 4y/o nephew's name. He has a beautiful mop of blonde hair. Little dude. Loves his chickens, climbing trees and baby brother Suvi. He's a sunny little man. Gorgeous name! grin Slightly biased!

EldritchCleavage did not read the opening post with much attention. Barak? Fail.

Yes, thank you, I was being facetious (and I'm an Obama fan).

Barak's only a fail because it begins with a 'B' though.

Ezra

I like Asher!

Love it!
