    komatsuPC600 :  Congratulations! I don’t have a child but would want a son and I love baby name polls, lol. I voted for Elijah because I don’t personally care for Declan (and Declan seems to be getting pretty popular), plus Elijah has a great nickname. Enzo seems super weird, did you mean to go for a for really out there name? Just because the other 3 are more traditional so odd to throw that one in with them. Ezekiel isn’t weird but seems cruel to saddle a baby with that, it’s quite a… flamboyant name.

    I teach a little boy named Enzo and I love that name! Reminds me of Enzo Ferrari.

    I wanted to name my dog Enzo when we got him, but it got vetoed. I do like the name, but I think he’d have to have a very fiery personality to go with it, which is hard to guess. My second favorite is Declan. I’m not a fan of overtly biblical names, but since you are religious that’s certainly a personal choice! Don’t feel like you have to pick THE name. You can go in with options and see what fits him when you meet him (this is what I’m trying to tell myself as I’m 3 weeks from my due date and have nooo idea what my kid is going to be named, lol).

    OMG if I was a boy my name would have been Ezekiel, hahaha. Whenever I’m playing a video game where I can’t choose a female protagonist, I choose Zeke as the name.  

    Even so, I really prefer Elijah as a Biblical name. It rolls off the tongue better and Eli is a great nickname. 

    I like Enzo but it feels a little incomplete to me, like it’s supposed to be a nickname for Lorenzo. But maybe that’s because I’m part Italian too and that branch of my family favors three syllable names. 

    As much as I love trendy names, I’m not feeling Declan with an Italian sounding surname.

    komatsuPC600 :  I love the name Declan! I wanted it for my son, but my husband blackballed it! We ended up naming him Lochlan.

    I voted Elijah. We decided by testing out each name for a week but that only narrowed down our list. We waited to meet our son to make the final call. I didn’t care about personalizing anything ahead of time though.

    komatsuPC600 :  Haha! That’s too funny! 😂 I find them to be pretty similar, so not sure why both men would blackball one but not the other! I think Deck is a better nickname than Lock though 😉

    Enzo is super popular in the UK and France at the moment. I’m Christian and love Elijah but think Ezekiel is harder to pull off.

    What about Ezra? Kind of similar to Enzo. Of your choices, I like Declan.
