Michelangelo Jonathan vs. Michelangelo Elias

It’s decided that our second son will be named Michelangelo. We love it because it’s unique, Biblical, Italian, and artistic. His nn will probably be "Lo" or "Mikey". Dimitri Julian is our older son. Between these two middle names which one is the best? Thanks!

I hate it, he will seriously get bullied when he is older. Just stick with Mikey!

I think Elias flows better. Jonathan is too long (after Michelangelo) and of a completely different origin/ feel.

How will he be bullied? People name their kids "Messiah" and "Apple" and all other kinds of crazy s---, Michelangelo is fine.

I like Elias better, plus Jonathan is too long after Michelangelo. However, I voted for Jonathon because that way he can at least have one more nickname possibility if he doesn’t like Michelangelo in the future (cause let’s face it, it isn’t the most popular as a child, kids know the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Michelangelo over the artist) So, with Michelangelo Jonathan, he could also have the option of MJ.

I like Michelangelo Elias. I don’t think he will get teased! There are so many names he can go by if he later chooses. Mike, Michael, Angelo, Mikey and Lo! Elias is definitely the best choose. Either that or another name that is just one syllable. Like Michelangelo Jace. GL

Jonathan is too long with Michelangelo and I would also make Elias even shorter to flow better.
Why not use Eli as a middle name?

I am not keen on the nicknames you have in mind for this great name though. Why give him a fine name to then shorten it to a very ordinary nickname????

Michelangelo is a great name! It sounds great on every personality-type. I also really like the idea of Lo as a nickname, but Mikey is cute as well! My favorite is Elias, because it’s one of my favorite names, I really like the flow, and Jonathan might be a bit long with Michelangelo, though I do like how they sound together. And I just love the name of your other son, Dimitri Julian! Very handsome, and Michelangelo goes perfectly with it. :-)

~God bless!
