    Default names similar sounding to Xavier & Levi

    Hi,

    Hubby & I are expecting our little boy in Dec, we are trying to decide on a name. I love Levi, hubby not so much, we both like Xavier (Zavy for short) but are not 100% set on it. The middle name will be William. Just wondering if anyone can think of any names that are similar sounding to Levi & Xavier?

    Doesn't answer your question, but something to consider:
    My bub's name is Xavier... most people pronounce it "exavier", even when I have said his name to them multiple times...they persist. It never crossed my mind that people would do that, and it drives me nuts. Hopefully it doesn't bother him too much :\

    I'm guessing Zavier? That's how friends of ours pronounce it. I've had to change my pronouncing ion

    It depends on where you're from. Some countries pronounce it ex-avier, some zavier, some eg-za-bier, some shuh-vier, there are so many different ways. So it really just depends on how the parent wants to pronounce it.

    Yup, we pronounce it 'zavier'.
    I can understand the mispronunciation when it's just read...I just don't get it when I've said the name slowly and clearly to their face multiple times:

    What's his name?
    zavier
    exavier?
    zzz-avier
    exavier
    zavier
    I have a *insert cousin, nephew, friend etc.* called exavier too
    ...*gives up*
