Names like Elliott

Hi,
14 weeks until our first baby arrives and I’ve liked Elliott until now, in the middle of the night... does anyone have any similar suggestions? We also like:
Jude
Edward (however so popular)
Seth (bit plain)
Zane (DP’s idea, I’m not against it)
We have two middle names after DPs dad who suddenly passed away last year and my Grandad who is still with us. They’re everyday names so I think pretty much anything will go.

Finding boys names terribly hard to fall in love with.
Thank you

They’re all nice names (not too keen on Zane personally but it’s not awful)

How about...
Jonah
Finn
Toby
Gabriel
Evan

I only like Zane from your list.
How about Joel, Alec, Adam, Rex, or Bram.

I like Elliot but am worried they might get called Smelly-ot which has put me off.

We're thinking about Toby now if it's a boy. I do like Seth too but it wouldn't go with our surname. Edward's nice. Zane is too One Direction for me (even though the spelling is different). Jude's a bit obscure wink

I think Elliot, Jude and Edward are lovely. From your preferences, other names which sprang to my mind are:

Zachariah, Joshua, Ellis, Joel, Finn, Alaister

I like Seth and Edward best. Zane could invite "Zany" as a nickname, which you might prefer to avoid.

Edwin
Zachary
Saul
Ethan
Julian
Jonathan
Leo
Vincent
Arthur
Jacob
Ezekiel (Zeke)
Elias
Joshua
James
Luke
Nathaniel (Nat or Nate)
Thomas
Anthony
Isaac
Matthew

I had Elliott on my list, and also liked Lucas, Oscar and Isaac.

I like Elliott most from your list smile

Elijah is similar if you were still looking for names like Elliott.

We had Elliot and Tobias on our list, think they are quite similar in style.
