Need to find a boys name!

    We were so sure we were having a girl that we already had a name picked, then BAM! Balls all over the screen told us in no uncertain terms that we're having a lil boy - now we can't seem to find a name.

    We want something quite unusual, but not too wacky and definately NO made up names! (my cousin made up her son's name - I dunno what she was thinking!).

    We have a few names on the table so far but they're all biblical, so I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions to help me out!

    This is what I have so far:

    Aaron
    Shem (hubby's not too keen as my cousin is already called Shem)
    Micah
    Malachi

    We have two boys,Lorenzo and Zachery Joseph.

    Names for boys we are looking at this time are:
    Luca,
    Giacomo,
    Matteo.

    Hubby is Italian so that explains the Italian sounding names LOL

    I do like Malachi ,beautiful name!

    My friends brother is called Giacomo but we call him Jack for short. I always liked his name, but I reckon people will wonder why we went for an italian name...

    I know! If it was a girl, she would have been Marleigh Rae, and I had a whole load of other names to choose from! But trying to think of a decent boys name that will grow with him is proving to be a much harder task!

    We'll probably just end up calling him Bob...:(

    Me and my husband have the opposite problem! We had a boys name "Alfie Laurence" but then we found out we are having a girl and we are really struggling to agree on a name.
    We think boys names are much easier!

    Would that be Bob then? LOL! I actually got the name Marleigh from 'I am Legend'. Will Smith's daughter was called Marleigh in the film.

    I understand what you mean,LOL
    Hubbys family hadn't hear the name Zachery before and we explained that we chose it from the bible because of its meaning and how it tied in with us.

    I am going with Giacomo if its a boy I think,it seems to be the frontrunner :)

    Hmm, a lot of you like Micah...

    I quite like Micah too, although Aaron was my first choice - but I've just got a feeling he's not gonna look like an Aaron...
