I really like it, but is it a bit "out there"? hmm

It's a great name, traditional but underused.

I really like it.

Lovely lovely lovely name

I really like it but I have a funny surname confused (it's my username without the digits of course) lol! Do you think it sounds odd? It's so hard to match any name with that kind of surname!! sad

Love it.
Sorry but the surname is the issue, not the forename! Just don't call him Bread. Or Cake. Or...
Casper might sound nice. Casper Crumb. Ezra Crumb. Theophilus Crumb. Michael Crumb.
Its ok. Ezra's a sound name. It will be fine.

Yeah it's such an odd name no matter what!! I've only had it since last year after getting married so not sure I've completely got my head around it yet! Lmao!!
My other names I like are Dexter and Albie? But Ezra feels like a strong name for a boy/man so like it a lot.

I love Ezra. If had another boy it would be top of my list!

I love Ezra and Albie. Dexter not so much. However if you were to call him Brad Crumb that would make me really happy smile

I like Ezra, and it's getting a lot of love on various name boards at the moment.

My sister has an Ezra, as does her friend. They are trendy types.

I like it, and I think it goes well with your surname.

I like Ezra and Dexter. Albie, I really don't, particularly with your surname.
Plus a lot of people will say 'Alfie'.
Ezra may become a little more popular, because there is a character in Star Wars Rebels named Ezra, but I doubt its ever going to be top ten.

It's a great name, and didn't do Ezra Pound any harm with a funny surname. Well he had a fairly checkered life, but ...

mamalovebird Fri 08-Jan-16 11:25:22

I know a little Ezra. Love it.

its another Old Testament name waiting for a revival. When I was a child I knew no one called Isaac, Joshua or Zachary (actually there was one Zachary in 6th form) - now those are some of the most common names amongst my DC's peers.

My dog is called Ezra, I thought rhyming Ezra hound, Ezra pound was funny about 15 years ago. Sadly I still think it is funny now, and the lovely Ezra is still with us, would have considered it for Ds but you can't name your son after the dog unfortunately.

I know of 3 so it's obviously not weird (not exactly habbakuk). Don't know if it might sound a little dickensian with your surname?

My little boy (5 months ) is called Ezra. I've had oooo isn't it exotic. Seriously it's a biblical name people. We used tho cause of the meaning.

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 08-Jan-16 11:54:12

It's a name that's mentioned a lot on here but I'm not sure if that means it's MN popular or Real Life popular.

Old Testament style names are uber trendy at the mo so it would fit in with that trend.

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 08-Jan-16 11:56:05

So definitely on the rise but still only 266 born in 2014

TheBigRedBoat Fri 08-Jan-16 12:08:24

I think it's lovely and no real issues with Crumb

SugarMiceInTheRain Fri 08-Jan-16 12:11:26

Love it, DD would have been Ezra if she'd been a boy!

I really like it, but from some of the comments on here it sounds like it might be about to become the new Noah or Isla, in other words go from a nice underused name to a reception class with two or three in a few years.

crumb04 Fri 08-Jan-16 12:15:40

Thank you for your comments it's actually helped a lot. It's nice to get people's reactions either way. smile
