  • Old Testament or New? I like the prophets - Daniel, Jeremiah, Micah. Something different, Shadrach. My husband loves to suggest names like Othniel, Lemuel, Melchisedek! Lol! He can be really helpful! What about the disciples, Matthew, Mark, John, Peter, etc.

  • Daniel, Joshua, David, Adam, Aaron, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Joseph, Jacob (tough because of the Twilight series, I think this is going to be a very common name in the next few yrs), Jeremiah, Nathanial, Peter, Paul, Gideon, Benjamin, Simeon, Isaac, Nathan, Elijah, Isaiah.

    Hope some of those help :-)

  • Caleb, Malachi, Paul, Isaac, Abram, Abraham, Paul, David, Joel, Job, Samuel, Timothy, Thomas - not trying to name the ones that you had already suggested but here are a few more :)

  • My son's name is Micah Josiah. Micah means "Who is like God" & Josiah means "Fire of the Lord"
    I only know of 2 other Micahs, but it's not so uncommon that it's strange.
    Best Wishes & I hope you find what you're looking for!

  • I named my DS Noah. Even though it's very popular in the U.S., it's not very popular in my region. We haven't met another little boy Noah yet, so if you really love the name don't rule it out just because it's at the top of the U.S. list because it might not be that popular in your particular region. That being said, I also love the name Jonah and it is hardly ever used.

    Other great choices: Aaron, Abraham, Amos, Asher, Cyrus, Eli, Elias, Elijah, James, Jared, Jedidiah, Levi, Luke, Malachi, Moses, Obadiah, Omar, Silas, TItus, Uriah
