grin me too, villain

I thought Elijah before opening thread and reading your list. The suggestion of Ezra also sounds very well matched with Jonah.

I loved Jonah but my DF put me off by saying its a really unlucky name. Sailors and fishermen think it means their boat will sink. After that I felt I couldn't name DS anything with an unlucky meaning.

Flossierules Sat 03-Sep-16 17:52:51

Justput- it actually means dove which I associate with peace which is quite nice.

Thanks for your suggestions. Love Jude and Joel, they were on the list first time round, but don't feel I can have another J name (dh is also a J!)

Also love Ezra as love OT names but do they sound a bit too 'religious' together?

I love Jonah!

I'd pick Elijah from your list, or Leo.

I know a Jonah and Noah, if you like a biblical water-based theme.

sonlypuppyfat Sat 03-Sep-16 18:48:11

I like Ira and Caleb

i Adore Jonah and Elijah, think its a gorgeous sib set smile

nat73 Sat 03-Sep-16 20:34:59

Rowan is cool :-)

KeepOnPlodding Sat 03-Sep-16 22:37:01

Seth or Noah?

daisydalrymple Sat 03-Sep-16 22:45:51

Elijah came to mind before I read your suggestions grin, but they do sound very religious together if you are trying to avoid that.

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Sat 03-Sep-16 22:51:46

Caleb or Elijah.

I think Caleb would probably be slightly better as Jonah & Elijah do both have the same "ah" sound at the end.

Caleb. Before I even read your list.
