We are settled on a name but not on the middle name.

Zachary Luke Smith


Zachary Ethan Smith

I wasnt sure whether having two bibical names was abit odd?

Sophronia Wed 04-Jan-17 20:28:53

I prefer Zachary Luke

Zachary Luke.

Both options are Biblical, aren't they? Not heavily. I don't think that's an issue.

Prefer Luke. More people should use Luke, it's very strong.

Zachary Luke

Zachary Luke. It flows much more smoothly.

Prefer Luke to Ethan but as a whole name Zachary Ethan Smith flows better.

Ethan isnt bibical but Luke and Zachary are.

I just wasnt sure whether Zach Luke Smith sounded right even though the full name will be Zachary but he will be Zach day to day

I think Luke too. If he's saying his full name it's more likely he'll be saying 'Zachary Luke Smith' than 'zach Luke smith', I imagine.

EmmaC78 Wed 04-Jan-17 20:37:25

I prefer Luke too.

Ethan is a biblical name
It is Hebrew and appears numerous times in the Old Testament
Both options are nice

Luke smile

I think you only ever say your middle name when you say your full name.

Zachary Ethan is hard to say because of the two ee sounds together.

Luke is much better

Zachary Luke

Another vote for Zachary Luke.

SausageSoda Wed 04-Jan-17 22:42:44

Another vote for Luke as middle name

I really like both names, but I think Luke fits better with the first name and surname.

Ethan Zachary would be nice though...
