I LOVE the name Gideon, that was one of the boys names we had picked for this baby (the other was Bennett). I love sticking with the GW without making him a Jr.

NOT LELAND!!! I know a big mean old pervert named Leland. LOL Can't even think of the name without wanting to hide.

I Voted Gage, But, I also love Gabriel. It's funny how we tie a child's name to an experience we had with a child who had a certain name. I had a daycare child named Graham that was so sweet and lovable. But, the kids always called him graham cracker.

I love the name Seth Michael too. If I had, had a boy that was the name I wanted.

SO,
1. Gage tied with 1. Gabriel
2. Levi
3. Gideon. (Have you ever heard the Christian song by Michael Card about Gideon?)

And, I absolutley ADORE the name Wesley. I have had all good encounters with kids named Wesley.

I like the name Leland I think of Leland from Dog the Bounty Hunter
But I voted for Gage (I think of Pet Cemetary when I hear it but its still cute) and I would carry on the tradition\

I voted for Graham, because that is my ds's name and I love it. But I also like Gage (my nephew's name), Gideon & Levi (another nephew's name). I would carry on the GW tradition, but only if you liked the G & W names.

I am partial to Garrett, since it's my maiden name I also like Gage, but it will always remind me of the little boy on pet semetery.

SO, I'm all for doing the family thing. BUT, ONLY IF YOU LOVE THE NAME! I don't think using a name you dislike to honor family is a good idea in general. As long as you love the name, go for it.

My very favorites are Garrett and Levi! I adore both!
Very cute! So your dh's family is with the JM's! We have alot of time left to decide on it, but was thinking about it so much, I just thought...hey why not ask everyone! lol

Thanks for voting!!!
