What's in a name




Each of my three beautiful little boys has a name that we love. Their middle names are family names, and their first names seem to fit them to a tee. Well, as you may or may not be able to tell from the pictures, baby boy #4 is on his way. My biggest worry? A name! I am fresh out of ideas! I want his name to be just as beautiful and special as the others, but I haven't a clue! I am hoping that over the next 4 months we will be inspired to find the perfect name for our precious baby boy. Any suggestions?

Barack?

Did you know Barack is actually in the bible? Go figure.

If we're going to bible names, I've always been partial to Festus in the book of Acts :)

Congratulations! I never have thought of boy names. Steve names the boys and I name the girls. I am so happy for you!

We have this really fun baby name book called the Baby Name Wizard. It lists "sibling names" next to baby names. So just for fun here are the sibling names that accompany your sons' names: Alex, Cole, Jonah, Luke, Max, Jalen, Caden, Landon, Cooper, Bryson, Connor, Hunter, Dylan, Devin, Riley. Good luck!

boy names are so hard! I love the boy names you have done already...but I'll try and brainstorm some! What about Duncan...Grampy's nick name? Just kidding!

You're brave to open it up for discussion! ;) That is seriously a tough one. I'm sure you'll choose wisely, just don't let Chris decide. ;)

Congrats!!! A house full of boys! I love it!!

How about Nicholas? It is kind of a mix between you and Chris ... well, kind of ... nevermind. So happy for you anyway!!

Well, Danger is still open since Todd and Lara decided aginst it. lol
Collin is always good too... and I like Lisa's. Duncan is cute! I dunno...I guess that is why we have girls...we never could decide on a boy name!

Yay! 4 boys! That is actually what I was hoping for, but to no avail. Good luck with the name. I have a huge lists of names I love so here are a few: Talmage, Zadek, James, Tad (short for Thomas & the name of Abraham Lincoln's son), Lewis & call him Lad, Liam, Henry, Charlie. . . I could go on.

I like Dylan. No, I couldn't tell he was a boy. Those pictures look like snowfall to me. And were you carrying Logan in Primary yesterday? Amazing!

Mama Lara said...

Danger is an option ya know?! We nicknamed Brian, "Danger" so you'll have that to compete with! I like Whitney's idea with Nicholas! It is kind of a hybrid of yours and Chris' names! I also like Duncan. How about Ikkin? That's your name backwards! Or...Sirhc? That's Chris's name backwards! I'm no help, am I. I better quit while I'm ahead, this could get silly!! Good luck!
