Is Judas a misprint for Jude? Because I really don't think that name is going to live down the whole Judas Iscariot/30 pieces of silver thing any time soon.

Judas or Judah - not Jude.

Don't think you could go with Judas - still too soon after the unpleasantness with the Romans... wink. Judah nice though. Elias / Ezra / Elijah are other suggestions but I think are fairly popular. Solomon / Seth possibilities too.

If you're going for quirky I'd avoid Eva / Evie. Lovely names but think very, very popular atm. At a farm park today and I heard so many Evie's being called

Rivka

Ziva
Elisheva (I've always loved this)
Zipporah

Umm bit stick on boys names. All the Jewosh guys I know are called Josh, Paul or Jonathan! How about Nathan or Nathaniel?

Actually disregard the name Jobab, Hebrew but horrible meaning. Just checked it just now.

Of your original lists, I like Arlo, Amos and Etta best. I agree with not using Evie/Eva as they are very well used, and you have so many more distinctive options.

For boys:
Ezra
Saul
Tobias
(They were all on my list!)

No idea for girls, sorry!
