We were all over Nico when I was pregnant. And the only name I could think of for a midde name was Blue! I loved it. Then I was talking to a friend one day about potential names (they were expecting a baby boy, too) and he said, "Oh, I didn't know you were a such-and-such fan (a band whose name I can't remember), that's the lead singer's daughter's name." I did not know the band, and had never heard of the names Nico and Blue paired together! So strange.
I still think Nico (& Blue for a middle) is an awesome name, but we ended up going with Elias.
For the first two days of his life he was Elias Kai, but then we decided against it and went with Elias Antonio. We both really love the name Kai, and if we have any more kids (unlikely, but you never know) I imagine it would be on our short list.
I also loved the name Ezra, but my hubby shot it down because it is also the name of a band? I'm so clueless, I pretty much only listen to punk and I just don't know much about other genres of music.
I also really liked Galen and Malachi, both names that my husband wasn't a fan of for whatever reason. Silly man!
But Elias was always my first choice, and when he was born I was convinced that that was who he was.
