It happened: I fell in love with Ezra.
I don't know why; I don't know how. I just stumbled upon some old poems that I had saved, and among those were some lines by Ezra Pound.
And all of a sudden I adored the name-- I'm not even sure it's the association, but whatever.

Now I need to find a first name to go with it!
[I don't think I could ever use it as a first name-- unless maybe I found an absolutely perfect middle name, but I don't think so]

Anyone in the mood to help me? :P

I'd also love to hear what you think of the name itself :P

It isn't something I would have picked out but I think it would make a great middle name! I looked at some of the names you had on your "Top 10" and these are the ones I like paired with Ezra plus a few extra :P

Wyatt Ezra
Liam Ezra (although I like Liam Alexander much better :P)
Daniel Ezra
James Ezra
Vance Ezra
Collin Ezra
Jacob Ezra
Jonathan Ezra
Logan Ezra
Seth Ezra
Nathaniel Ezra
Samuel Ezra
Brendan Ezra
Simon Ezra
Jude Ezra/Ezra Jude
Benjamin Ezra

I love Ezra! I first read it in a book about four or five years ago and have loved it ever since. I haven't come up with much combos, but I love Ezra James. It's simple, but very handsome.

I would love to use it, but I don't know if I would be brave enough to either!

See, I like Ezra, but it's my dad's middle name and the reason I don't have one. :P

My dad always hated it, and got 'bullied' for it, so he decided that me and Danni wouldn't have any - as hard as my mum fought him on it. :/


Though I still like it, I blame it for my name problem. :P <3

I love Ezra. It is fun and quirky but still sounds strong and distinguished. I think it sounds great paired with the 'main stream classics' like William, Joseph etc. It adds interest without feeling like a complete clash of styles.

William Ezra
Joseph Ezra
Thomas Ezra
Charles Ezra
Samuel Ezra
James Ezra

or something with a literary feel:

Julian Ezra
August Ezra
Miles Ezra
Gabriel Ezra
Holden Ezra
Griffin Ezra

I really dig Ezra, too.

Ezra Gabriel is what comes to mind but I also like Ezra Benjamin. You should use it as a fn imo :)
