Help me name this baby already!!

ds1 is Gabriel.His name was so easy..it came to me the day we found out we were having a boy,I said it and that was it...DH loved it,I loved it..end of story.

This baby is due next month and still..no name.
Names we have tossed around are Porter,Gideon,Thatcher,Calder...any other suggestions??

I wanted to do an E middle name because both DH and DS1 have the same middle name and it starts with an A,mine starts with an E so I thought why not...

my dilemma,if we go with Gideon(which is our fave),will any future kids have to have a G name with an E or A middle name?I know I'm overthinking this and need to just focus on naming THIS baby lol

Nope, any future children do not need to be G. My first two are D, #3 will not be. We haven't asked on a name yet, but have about a week to go yet. For those that ask, we just tell them we liked 2 D names, but it wasn't on purpose, we had a list of names and the D one just fit. For sure if said#3 is a girl it is definitely not a D name.

I like the names you have listed so far. we had some of those on our list. Here are some others we liked: simon, elliot, sebastian, linus. I dont think using Gideon would force you to use G names in the future.

I agree that picking another G name is not a prison sentence to the letter G. I like the names you came up with so far. I personally love the name Thatcher. We have all girls and one boy we lost (we named him River) so the boy names we love but have never used are Rowan, Jesse, Thaddeus, Bodhi, and there are a ton more but my baby brain is taking over

It sounds pretty Biblical, honestly. If you are really religious, then go for it though!

Have you tried playing on baby naming sites? Maybe you'll find one that clicks better for you.
