    What's his name?
    zavier
    exavier?
    zzz-avier
    exavier
    zavier
    I have a *insert cousin, nephew, friend etc.* called exavier too
    ...*gives up*
    This is so strange to me - I don't actually know anyone named Xavier but automatically pronounce is "zavier".. I don't think I've ever heard it pronounced with the heavy "x" sound. Interesting.

    Also not necessarily a similar name, but I love the name Micah for a boy. Hoping my second is another boy so I can use it ☺️

    Ezekiel with Zeke for short.

    I don't know why but when I hear Levi I hear the name Harley (I think it's a black sorrows song) and I really like that name

    I love Levi. Xavier not so much due to the constant mispronunciation.

    What about - Zak, Zane, Zeke, ?

    I really like Sonny for a boy. ((No help I know ))

    Thanks for all of your suggestions, I also like Zac but due to personal reasons it would not be appropriate to name my child Zac, I also like Xander but friends named their son Xander. Still thinking of having Xavier, Zavy for short.
