DH and I agree on both Isaac and Zachary as potential names for this baby, I prefer Zachary.
Just don't know for sure that have that 'love it' feeling about it so wondered if we like these what others might we like?
Or do you know what the siblings are of any boys with either name?

What about Elijah?

I have an Isaac (was in top 100 when born) and twin Thomas (which means twin and I never knew that). He is the only Isaac in his school but there are 2 in beavers.
I prefer Isaac as it is slightly less inclined to be shortened to Zack IMO. His mates call him Eyes hmm. Zachary is still good.

Thank you for the replies.

I quite like Seth. Ethan and Noah are both lovely but taken by babies we know already.

I like Elijah, dh not keen though.

DD1 would of been Zachary (Zach) if she was a boy and DD2 would of been Seth if she was a boy. I dislike Isaac and there are lots in my local area (3 in DD1s pre school class alone)

Yes, Isaac very popular at the moment. Zach much less so. Seth is pretty cool and I only know of a handful! Quite like Elijah too (nn Eli?)

The Isaacs and Zacs I know have brothers called Oscar, Noah, Edward and Dominic. Any of these appeal?

I think Eli is a cute nickname - will see if this sways dh on Elijah.

Joel, i like, its getting added to the list.

Like Oscar too but I know 4 Oscars under 3 - very popular round here it seems.
