With our first born, we had a ton of boy names we liked but then found out we were having a girl. What to call her? I, along with many teachers, found finding names harder if you have taught a particularly difficult child with a name you like. Looking back, both my husband and I think that we were the ones to come up with our daughter's name. It is Abigail but most often we call her Abby. I love the story of Abigail in the bible and how she is such a model of beauty and wisdom. Abby's middle name is Sophia which means wisdom in Greek.
Our second born is named Silas Anthony. I've always loved the name Silas - again from the Bible. This one I did have to persuade my husband on - he said it grew on him. That is one perk of having 8 months for pregnancy (I say 8 months because I only go 8 months). Anthony is a family middle name going back for several generations.
We want to have more kids and I don't want to feel locked in to having a bible name but I also don't want to have one child being the only one without a bible name. What do you think? Am I over thinking this?
