My wife and I have found out that we're expecting twin boys this summer and we finally picked names
Just let me know what you think, we wanted to go for names that were somewhat unique without being too over the top.
We more or less picked alternate spellings to somewhat uncommon names to begin with, here they are:

Zakery Dante & Kobe Domenik

Let me know what you think of all four names.
Thanks!

thanks for your responses and suggestions but i have a nephew named hunter and my wife and i are not crazy about names that are of the newest craze (the "aden")
think about that, theres aiden brayden jaiden hayden kayden. theyre just all really common right now so i feel like growing up there will be one of each in every class if not more.
the reasons we chose zakery dante and kobe domenik are:
my wifes brother that passed away at a young age was named zachary. and my grandfathers name was domenic.
so we are using family names that have been "remodeled" by switching c's with k's.
dante and kobe are just both names we have each agreed to like.

I don't know why you would spell it Zakery...my baby brother's name was Zachary and he passed away when he was two years old. Dominik is alright, I guess. I don't like Kobe but I do like Dante.

However, I have very specific name preferences for boys, my favorites being Gabriel, Isaiah, Fabian and Eli.

I'd call them "misspelled" myself.

Zachary and Dominic are nice names. Ks don't make everything better, and there is no reason the next generation deserves names that no one can spell when the past ones didn't.

I think your choices are great, although I'm a spelling nazi, so the spelling would drive me nuts.

Zachary Dante
Koby Dominic

They look much better like that.

Although, I'd be tempted to say I like Dante as the first name better than Zachary.
