Ok normally we do not do this, we don't really want peoples opinions on what we name our children however we are going to remain strong on the green team with this baby(meaning we are not finding out the babies gender until he/she is born) and I am having the hardest time coming up with a boys name that I like and that Carl likes(that is the key) We have in the past used Bible names that can be shortened to a nickname(Gabriel-Gabe, Titus-Ty) and we like that but we don't want a super common name since our last name is common and David, Thomas, Timothy, Matthew and Peter are all used already so I am asking for suggestions. It doesn't necessarily have to be a Bible name we are open to anything. Girls name is covered so no worries there:) So leave me a comment...if we take someones suggestions we won't tell you until baby is here but hey then you can have bragging rights:) Note from Carl: It needs to be a strong name with good meaning.."no pansy names"

I am surprised how many have been discussed between Hollie and I already, and for much the same reasons.

This is exciting here are my suggestions:
Eli (Elijah)

Grandma Mel said...

OH GOODY! As I said before, I really like Elijah (Eli) but I also like Samuel (Sammy). I always think of the boys names of what they would sound like when announced at a sporting event. Gabe Clark on the tackle. Ty Clark dove to make the saving catch. So I think Eli Clark or Sam Clark would sound good over a PA system.

Flip-flop Mama said...

I agree with the others. . I like Elijah :) My biblical name of the day for you is Silas.

I asked GooF for suggestions and he said there's always Barnabas, shortened to Barney :)
