Love it

I love it and am considering using it smile deciding between Ezra, Zander or Dimitri!

Not a fan sorry.

I really like it but for some reason I always think it sounds like it should be a girls name!

MrsCornish Fri 16-Jun-17 06:27:15

The only baby I know called ezra is a girl. But generally it makes me think of ol'timers like Stinky Pete !

I really like it for a boy. It was a name we considered.

Love it! The little boy I know called Ezra goes by Ez which is so cute.

Nice for a girl imo xx

Ezra Pound. Some seriously dodgy beliefs. It's a no from me.

I know it's very popular and I usually love biblical names but I just picture an old bearded prophet. Sounds very old testament to me.

To me i just think of the Archers but I'm 50 and clearly it's coming back so if you like it use it.

Cagliostro Fri 16-Jun-17 07:44:48

I love it! Would happily use for this baby if a boy but DH hates it

It's nice enough as a name but it's very "in" and trendy at the moment. Feels like the next Noah. I suspect it'll have a peak and then crash. Along with Teddy

Agree with Lemondrop. It's very 'in' at the moment & I've heard of quite a few lately. Definitely the next Noah. I do like it though - probably in my top 3 biblical names.

I like it but there's a character in pretty little liars called Ezra (creepy teacher having an affair with one of his students) so I couldn't use it because of that.

OpalIridescence Fri 16-Jun-17 11:42:19

Honestly? I find it a slightly depressing name. Makes me think of the words 'grim' and 'grey'.

However I am told I like names of the flowery/ stripper variety so don't mind me too much!

Go with Ezra! grin

Ezra Pound. No from me.

donkey86 Fri 16-Jun-17 13:16:39

I know a family with the surname Ezra, so it sounds odd as a first name to me.

Decaffstilltastesweird Fri 16-Jun-17 16:22:15

I love it!

Can't stand Zander. Dimitri I can't get that excited about either way.

I'd definitely go with Ezra.

Sophronia Fri 16-Jun-17 21:49:20

I like it!

CatRash Fri 16-Jun-17 23:28:19

I love it and would consider using it myself if it wasn't my cat's name (he's a rescue and came pre-named).

If it helps I often shorten it to Ez or Ezzie (which ironically isn't shortening it at all...). And I'm talking about a cat so this probably isn't helping either!! Sort if I'm just slowly ruining this name for you!! He's a lovely cat though!!

Use it!!!!!!

LOVE the name Ezra (but only for a boy).
