Help, please.

I need help with some boy names. Preferably three syllable names. That have early church father connotations, or Biblical, or at least a saint's name. I have a few:

Three Syllable possibilities: (My other boys, by coincidence, have 3 syllable names, and are all named after early Christian saints)
Frederick
Theodore
Maximos
Joachim

Two Syllable Possibilities
Ivan
Isaac


One Syllable Possibilities
George


I know there are more that have passed through my mind, but I can't think of them now. Looking for some more possibilities. Anyone? Anyone?

Chrysostem (ok, that would be a pretty unusual name, but easily shortened to 'Chrys'...and how awesome a patron!)
Seraphim
Anthony
Moses
Athanasius
Clement
Cyril
Cyprian (I really like this one!)
Hilary
Isidore
Clement

Hope that helps. :-)

I am partial to George and Seraphim. Sebastian? lol. My second son's full name is Jonas Sebastian Seraphim George. I like Maximos too. But I think a little baby George would be so cute.

I've long said if I were to have another boy, I'd either name him Theodore or Julian.
I also adore Seraphim.

I have a George! He was ten pounds twelve ounces when he was born - and 22.5" long! He's almost 6'3" now but thin as a rail.

That being said, had we another, he would have been Augustus. But I also like Barnabas.

Ignatius
Benedict

How about Zachary? I thought that this morning, and I think it fits very well. Melanie and Zachary sounds like cute lil' pair, don't you think? :)

Do you already have a Maximos- because I bet a certain priest would come for the baptism if you named the baby that! ;)
