"We love this name! We adore Isaac, Elijah, and Isaiah but they are all so popular, we are hoping to use Ezra. It sounds so traditional and old-timey but would also fit a modern boy : )" Feb. 6, 2010:
"ezra is way too masculine for a girl...i love it, hope it doesn't get too popular. i hope to name my second son this, first son abel!" Sep. 16, 2009:
"This is my newborn baby's name. He is 1 week old and has lots of blonde hair and big blue eyes. I think people are really loving it, or unsure because it is so uncommon and it has the "a" ending. but I think it is beautiful. There are a lot of mens names that end with an a. Also, it is a very beautiful name from the Bible that isn't used much, and we like that." May. 26, 2009:
"It is very unique, and we are considering it for our baby boy. I like names that are strong and distinctive, and this is a very good and MASCULINE Biblical name. I wouldn't use it on a girl." Jan. 1, 2009:
"my 8 month old baby is Ezra. The name is becoming more popular once again. Everyone loves the name, although his fathers side thought it was a girl name. I think it is a beautiful biblical name." Oct. 24, 2008:
"Its my 4 year old sons name... im just suprised on how common it looks on the scale because we havent met another. His dad is has a strong biblical name that way, so we love it. Its definately NOT a girls name though, thats just ridiculous." Oct. 8, 2008:
"I was totally against the name b/c my husband chose it out of the baby name book (he wanted something different) and I just did not like it, but now, 2 yrs later, our son is such an "Ezra". It fits him perfectly and EVERYBODY loves it. I LOVE THE NAME!" Mar. 4, 2008:

"I named my son Ezra. There was a LOT of controversy on my husband's side because they concitered it a "black" name. And he's a blonde/blue eyed boy. But we love the name. We have wanted it since our first child which ended up being a girl. My mother in law wouldnt even say it until he could talk...so I felt a little weird and affended about that. But I love the name, and it's a very POWERFUL name. It's different. I get lots of compliments on it. I dont like ordinary names. He's 5 and I ask him if he likes it and he says yes!" Apr. 14, 2009:
"I like it, but I think its a better girls name than boys." Jun. 9, 2006:
"I like this name it's biblical and very old but still unique and you hardly ever hear it anymore. Too bad husband wont let me use it says it doesn't sound right with our last name!" Nov. 16, 2005:
