Although Dylan is an increasingly common name in newborns , it is an original option to call your child.

This is the case of Leandro, a name of Greek origin that translates as 'lion man'. On the other hand, it is a name with a trajectory, since it was a character in mythology that put his life at risk for love.
Jabel is a different name that comes from the Greek. Although there are many doubts about it, it could come from yovel, as it was called the ram's horn. It is possible that you have not heard many children who are called like that, and that is still a little used name.
