I tried to squeeze Atlas under Karine's radar as a possible name for Ezekiel. She was not a fan. I still think Atlas is a great name. It's a plausible name, at least. Apollo, Athena, and the other principals of the Greek pantheon are a little too mainstream for me. A little overplayed, I think. Like Zeus. You can' t call your kid Zeus. It's like calling your kid Steve. Yes, it's a powerful name, but a name whose time has come and gone. Cronus, on the other hand, now you're talking.
Atlas is a wonderful name for a little boy, especially if he's got some size in his genes. You might not want to name your son Atlas if he's gonna be a pipsqueak. But don't sell your son short. You don't have to be a giant to carry the name Atlas. Your child may be able to redeem his small stature with a mighty intellect.
Combine Atlas with Ajax, hero of the Trojan War, and you have yourself what I believe may be the ultimate pair of names for a set of boy-boy twins. Atlas and Ajax. Ajax and Atlas.
But we are not having boy-boy twins, so this brilliant pair we have to reject. Although, Ajax might work for a girl. Something to think about.
If nothing else I have a great set of names for the pair of Rhodesian Ridgebacks I hope to own someday.
