We have four boys and just found out we are expecting our fifth son. For our first four sons we used the name of a grandparent (first names, middle names or in the case of the grandmas, maiden names) as first names. With middle names we just went with names we thought flowed well (and loved the sound of). Now with son #5 we are fresh out of grandparents (and ideas).
Our sons’ names are:
[name]Jackson[/name] [name]Isaiah[/name] [name]Phoenix[/name]
[name]Landon[/name] [name]Theodore[/name] [name]Lennox[/name]
We know we could go ‘further back’ and dig out some more family names but for us, it starts to feel contrived to shake another name out of the family tree just for the sake of saying “It’s a family name”. We will use a family name as a middle name (or one of two if we end up going with three names again). Which name we would use depends on the first name/other middle name we come up with.
Thanks for any help!
