Wow, you’ve all given me so much to think about. The replies have been very helpful though.
Thank you. [name]Gail[/name] is my middle name. I’m not completely set on using it in that form. I like the suggestion of [name]Abigail[/name].
We like [name]Titus[/name], [name]Solomon[/name], and [name]Elias[/name]. They were all on the longer boys list.
[name]Sela[/name]/[name]Selah[/name] is so nice. That is on our longer girls list.
We like [name]Tobiah[/name] also. There are so many “T” names we like for boys, but we don’t want to reuse first letters.
[name]Magdala[/name] [name]Abigail[/name]/[name]Avigail[/name] is a great combination! It’s our favorite right now.
[name]Bartholomew[/name] is one of my husband’s favorites. I can’t really picture a son named [name]Bart[/name] yet though.
[name]Hi[/name]! Thanks for your compliments and confidence in our name style. I think [name]Jamie[/name] told you, but my favorite names were always [name]Thaddeus[/name], [name]Magdalen[/name], [name]Dorothy[/name], and [name]Gideon[/name]. I don’t really consider any of those too weird. My darling husband threw the uniqueness into the mix and they still felt like they fit my style. I really like names with an old fashioned feeling or maybe names you might not immediately picture on a baby or young child. Of the two images you described in [name]Magdala[/name] vs. [name]Magdalen[/name], I prefer and think of the one for [name]Magdalen[/name]. I think DH would agree. However, I know he wants bold too.
[name]Do[/name] you have any other simple middle name suggestions for [name]Zebedee[/name]? We were talking last night and we are not sure we want to use family names at all just to avoid hurt feelings. Our baby will be the first grandchild on my side so I would love to use my dad, [name]Nicholas[/name], but I do have 6 younger siblings and maybe they feel more strongly about using family names than we do. Names from his side are limited for grandbaby #7.
[name]Abel[/name], [name]Gilead[/name], and [name]Sela[/name] are my favorites from the others you listed. [name]Gilead[/name] in particular is one I don’t think has ever come up before. That’s rare!
I miss you girls today. What can I say? I’m married to the self-proclaimed black sheep of the family. See you tomorrow.
I like your screen name and I like that you gave me Bible reading homework. All the names you listed in your first post are very in line with our style. We’re not just looking New Testament, but I did like the lists you put together. Going to check them out with DH tonight.
Your name is cute too! I will check our your blog too. Thank you for the comments.
It’s encouraging to hear you love [name]Thaddeus[/name] [name]Clement[/name] so much. It was our first choice for a full boys name earlier this year and maybe we need to go back to it. [name]Thaddeus[/name] has always been my favorite boys name.
Hello! [name]Glad[/name] [name]Jamie[/name] sent you to help. [name]Gail[/name] is only on the list because it’s my middle name and my DH thinks it would be appropriate for us to share a middle name. I like my middle name, but I don’t think it’s necessary to use it.
[name]Magdalena[/name] is so pretty and feminine, but we think it’s just too long. So you prefer [name]Magdalen[/name] with an E on the end?
[name]Miriam[/name] and [name]Tabitha[/name] are two of my favorites from your list. I think Tabitha is already on Jamie’s list.
My DH is worried about [name]Miley[/name] [name]Cyrus[/name] connections, so thank you for bringing that up. So [name]Zebedee[/name] is not cool at all? [name]Even[/name] as [name]Zeb[/name] among his friends and family?
[name]Zephaniah[/name] is neat. I’ll ask DH about that one.
We were talking about [name]Abram[/name]. [name]Jamie[/name] is pushing [name]Ezekiel[/name] alot too. Oh and [name]Jethro[/name] is one of my husband’s favorites. Maybe it should come back to the short list.
