Baby names

Sibling for Ezra and Malachi

30 replies

supernaturaldelight · 08/04/2023 16:54

We’re expecting DC3 in September and starting to look at baby names. We won’t be finding out the sex but we’ve always found boys names easier than girl names. Our boys are called Ezra and Malachi which are obviously quite biblical but this wasn’t intentional, we just liked both names and seem to like a lot of biblical boy names. We’ve used our favourite boys names up now and have no clue on girls names. Any ideas?

Maybe pick another biblical name to match?

If it was me, I would stick to the biblical theme, as I wouldn’t want my third to seem out of place with the others.

For a girl how about:

  • Ada/Adah
  • Bethia
  • Bethany
  • Eden
  • Esther/Ester
  • Hannah
  • Martha
  • Ruth
  • Talitha


For a boy:
  • Abel
  • Amos
  • Asher
  • Benjamin/Benji/Ben
  • Eli
  • Elijah
  • Isaac
  • Jesse
  • Jude
  • Levi
  • Lucas
  • Micah
  • Noah
  • Reuben
  • Silas
  • Zachary

We like Jonah, Amos, Isaac, Jesse, Jude, Levi and Silas for boys.
There’s hardly any biblical girl names that we like. I like Esther, but too close to Ezra I think. I don’t mind Lois either but it reminds me of family guy.

Haha! It’s not as out there but I really like Bartholomew, I wish I was brave enough to go for it.
Although if anyone has more ‘out there’ biblical girls names they’d be welcome because the more traditional ones don’t really stand out to me.

I think another biblical name would be appropriate. I quite like Hannah but its not ver out there. Ruth. Lots of boys names in the bible.

Josiah.

I love the name and have only met one and he was the nicest man which I think made me like it more.

I love Lydia but I have a close family member with that name so I can’t. Phoebe is lovely, I also like Delilah.

Bartholomew is fine. My first thought was Ezekiel but it's another Ez name. I think Nicodemus is a great name.

I also like Miriam but would rather not have the same initial. Out of all the girl names I think Phoebe is the front runner so far. Thank you for so many suggestions

They’re gorgeous names. Lydia is a beautiful name, I wish my family member wasn’t called it so that I could use it😂
