@Whiskeypowers The names spelt both ways.

Mica might be pronounced differently to Micah.
”Myka” more than “Mee- Sha” IYSWIM

Noah - too popular
Elias - too long
mica - Micah
zane - Zayn?
Rami - no

Not keen on any of them.

LizzieBet14 · 23/11/2022 17:11

Noah or Elias

antipodeancanary · 23/11/2022 17:15

Elias then Micah with an h. Would you consider Michael which is due a revival.

AmandaMirandaPanda · 23/11/2022 17:16

I love Elias.

Also like Rami - it's a name in both Hebrew and Finnish (totally separate origins) and I think also Arabic? Don't know how it would go over in an English-speaking country, though.

Zane is not to my taste but not bad; familiar/easy to pronounce but not overused. Noah is OK but soooo popular!

Not sure about Mica, reminds me of the mineral.

ItsAWoozyItsAWazzy · 23/11/2022 17:29

Zane. Has a strong sound to it, but I like names with X's and Z's in them. I found Noah and Elias quite wet.

Piglet1122 · 23/11/2022 17:33

Noah is common as much so not a fan
i like rami! Reminds me of Gemma Collins partner hes a nice man x

TheVanguardSix · 23/11/2022 17:40

Mica makes me think of the cosmetics ingredient.

Elias is probably my top pick.

Greeneyegirl · 23/11/2022 17:50

Love Elias. Was on my list but it's getting a bit popular for me now but if you like Noah then that probably won't bother you

Flowersmx · 23/11/2022 19:55

@KirstenBlest Alot of the names chosen apart from maybe Micah are really likeable tbh

OP posts:
Flowersmx · 23/11/2022 19:57

@Greeneyegirl Thats true but nearly all the nice names are really popular

OP posts:
Flowersmx · 23/11/2022 20:00

@AmandaMirandaPanda They were my top 3 aswel !

I know a Micah. It suits him. I love the name Michael and they're a bit alike.
Noah is very popular around here. Elias is popular, but they use the El-EE-as pronunciation (not english). I know a more than one Ilyas too, and I prefer those names.
Zayn rhymes with nine, and I think it's a muslim name.

Go with Micah

TheSausageKingofChicago · 23/11/2022 20:10

Zane. I like Z names too.
