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.

Love both names. Though Cassius would be my pick. Would you pronounce it Cassy us or Cash us?

like both
strong male names dont shorten to cass sounds girly (cassandra)
if had to chose id go ezra

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

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

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!

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

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....

Love Cassius! Dont like Ezra so much.

anonymosity Fri 01-Feb-13 23:26:06

haha yes, that could be a problem...

My only concern about Eli and Ezra is I don't want to come across like the Duggars having a theme.

Eli and Ezra - these are two of my faves, unfortunately we have a last name that starts with E and wouldn't go so we had to pass for our ds on both!

I love Ezra and would use it if soon to be born dc is a boy, but it has been vetoed by DP.

I love both. I'd probably go for Cassius because I think it flows better with Eli.

mama2bebe Mon 28-Jan-13 14:28:04

Cassius is great

I love Eli. Cassius is perfect with it.

EbbNFlow Mon 28-Jan-13 10:19:55

Both nice. Prefer Cassius - Cass is a great nn.

Beehatch Mon 28-Jan-13 10:07:55

I prefer Cassian to Cassius

Ezra is an interesting name, but the only one I knew was spoilt and hyperactive which has rather ruined it for me

HillBillySillyBilly Mon 28-Jan-13 10:01:05

Ah thanks lockets, he loves his name also. Cass is a fantastic nn. I'm just trying to get my dh to agree he says it just makes him think of the boxer!! confused
