why not Emilian is not drinking alcohol

Emilian (Emiliano) is not an uncommon name in Italy, and not a regional one. It is also common in spanish and portuguese speaking countries (see https://elsignificadode.net/emiliano-nombre/); maybe do you remember Emiliano Zapata? It may be uncommon in East Africa though. If you find it difficult to type, that's just laughable. So which common short faith-neutral name would you suggest?
