Found out today that new baby, due in August, is a boy  wub.gif

Our existing boy is named Zachary Stuart _ _ _ _ . (1 syllable British name).

We would like another name, that doesn't rhyme with Zachary, must have 3 syllables, no last names or professions. Middle name will most likely be Wayne, a family name.

If baby was a girl, he'd have been named Emerald.

I am very bad at names, (my partner chose our sons name) so would appreciate your input!

ETA Jonathan and Christopher are both out, unfortunately sad.gif

So...Jeremy...has a Y, is it too rhymey?

I have a secret hankering for Giacomo! I think with such British heritage and based on the appearance of the boy we've made already poor Giacomo might attract some confused looks on announcing his name...same might apply to Angelo wink.gif

Dominic, Christopher, Josiah, Isaiah, Tobias, Adrian, Oliver, Malachi (yish sound), Sebastian (depends on your pronunciation), Damian.

With Zachary I quite like Tobias.

Malachi ends in an eye sound as in Levi.

It is Malachy that normally ends in an ee sound as in Charlie.

I know, I as thinking about it rhyming with fly and couldn't remember if the OP had said no Y endings, no Y sounding endings or just no rhyming with Zachary.

I say Sebastian has 4 but is often a bit smooshed together to make 3, same with Samuel, 3 down to 2.  Any linguists out there to clarify what makes a proper distinct syllable?
