[name_m]Just[/name_m] when I thought my lists were coming together. Oh well! Can’t say I’m not excited for some new inspiration
[name_m]Gideon[/name_m] has been on thin ice for a while now with Hubby…he’s just not as sold on the name. I loved the combo of [name_m]Gideon[/name_m] [name_m]Wolf[/name_m] sooo much, more so than I think I loved the individual name [name_m]Gideon[/name_m]. To me [name_m]Gideon[/name_m] [name_m]Wolf[/name_m] sounds dignified, intelligent, and keen, with a bit of a roguish streak. I like the contrast of a scholarly sounding name that’s a little rough and rakish around the edges.
The blessing and the curse of our name selections is that they’re usually closely tied with character associations, whether from books, movies, plays, mythology, or Biblical/historical figures. In this case, there was a character named [name_m]Gideon[/name_m] in one of our favorite shows, who was exactly like I pictured my [name_m]Gideon[/name_m]. I made the mistake of bringing it to Hubby’s attention that here was a good example of the name in action…aaaand then he turned out to be the bad guy!! An AWFUL bad guy at that, devious and manipulative and cruel It really damaged the association for me, and it pushed Hubby over the edge into veto territory. [name_m]Gideon[/name_m] is now gone.
I’m not ready to give up on [name_m]Wolf[/name_m] as a middle! It’s such a magical, evocative name to me, rich with symbolism. And what little boy (or even grown man) wouldn’t love having such a “cool” middle name? I just need some [name_u]Berry[/name_u] help to find a first name that not only flows well with [name_m]Wolf[/name_m], but also fits with the other names on our lists (see signature). Any and all suggestions are welcome!
