Akiva, ooooooo , So on the list! A great example of unique and still seams regal and classy!


and I hope you are flattered rather than bothered but I have Ezra on my long list at well.

This is so much easier with the girl names, I'm feeling like I'm going to be thrown a curve ball with the boys.

Not a problem at all, Adork, -- as long as you understand that if you use Akiva, it is still on my list and I still may use it .

PS I'm SO happy for you !

My sister's SIL named her son Maxton (I think they kinda made it up...they liked Max but not Maxwell, Maximillian, etc.)

Here are a few others that I know of off the top of my head...

Braxton
Zane
Zada

and I second the baby name wizard site...it's awesome...there's also a Baby Name Wizard book that's probably the best baby name book ever if you want something you can carry around with you!

My daughter's name is Zora. If you're into literature, there's the connection to Zora Neale Hurston, an amazing author who was part of the Harlem Renaissance movement.

I knew a kid named Zephyr when I was little. They called him Zephie.

There's not a boy version, but I bet you could find something similar if you check with Hebrew names - Rivka is Rebekah in Hebrew. Avram is similar in feel, maybe? Akiva is also Hebrew - it means to take by the heel, it's a variant of Jacob / Yaacov - he was the second twin and grasped his twin, Esau, foot as Esau was being born.

There's a ton to start with!

Not quite, Rebekah and Rivka are two different pronunciations of the same root Hebrew letters רבקח and in old text Rivka is actually considered to be the more correct with REBECCA and REBEKAH are Anglicized spellings.

sorry i'll get off my soap box now

My daughter's name is Vallerie So I highly recommend that one, I think it's beautiful.

Another girl's name I like is Vienna. Vallerie often gets called Veronica by people she's just met, who know her name starts with a V but can't remember it exactly LOL.


Here's some I like with those letters in them:

girls

Zali (Zah-lee)
Zalia (Zay-lee-uh)
Zadora
Zipporah (although I think in the bible this was a guy's name... I like it for a girl, love the nickname "Zippy" LOL)
Quinn
Quan (Kwahn)
Venus
Vivienne
Dixie
Trixie
Roxy/Roxanne
Dexy

Boys

Quintin/Quentin
Quinn
Voltaire
Vincent (i LOVE this name)
Vance
Tex
Jaxon/Jax
Saxon
Zack/Zachary/Zachariah etc
Zeke (Zeek)
Zap (maybe a bit 'out there' lol but maybe short for something - I just love the sound of Zap)


Good luck!

No worries! I'm actually glad you know this I took Hebrew in school, but it's easier to just say Rivka is Rebekah than to explain it all out, kwim? I do love the name Rivka though, if my sister wasn't already Rebekah, then we would probably use it. Have you found any names you like out of the lists?
