I thought about that - it's pretty similar to Briggs, but seems a tad girly to me. Especially if DH thinks it sounds like Brook S....

Re: New baby name thread!!

How about Phineas, with a nickname of Finn? There is an interesting account of Phineas in the Bible... Not sure what your dh would think, but he was a very righteous man.

Interesting - I'll look it up, thanks I looked up Finley last night, and it means fair-haired warrior which I thought was pretty cool, but DH had no comment. I feel like he's trying to let me down easy on that one.

One of my favorite Bible names is Ezra--I think it is such a cute name for a little boy.

I mentioned Ezra. He thought I was joking. About like I thought I was joking in Abner.

Way too soon, unless it's a super common name and you aren't close at all.

I am strongly considering using the name of my parents' first baby who was early and lived only a few weeks. Another sister and I have both used her middle name as middles for our first girls, but it seems...I don't know what...to use her first name. I did realize though that MY first name is the first name of my grandparents' first baby who was also early and didn't make it, so I guess my parent's would be okay with it, but I'm still not sure.

My nephew is named Ezra. I love it. It was cute on him when he was little and it's very nice now that he is almost grown.

I would think it would be ok to use now. My grandparents had a son that passed when he was six or seven. My uncle used his first and middle name as two middle names for one of his sons. We used his first name (David). I did talk a with my grandma about it first though.
