DH and I are still on the hunt for a Biblical Boy's name that isn't too popular.
We've considered Isaac, # 40 on the SSA website, Zachariah, #432 and the number 1 name we are considering is Gabriel, a name DH just suggested yesterday, but #22 on SSA. Elijah was #21 in 2009 and although it's close in rank to Gabriel, I think Elijah (thanks to Elijah Wood) is growing in popularity at a much faster rate. I hear of a lot more Elijah's than Gabriel's, although maybe I'm just really out of the loop. Zachariah is also my DH's best friend since middle school, but even so, DH seems married to the name Gabriel. What are your collective thoughts?
Nicknames will be Eli, Gabe or Zach. Isaac won't have a nickname.
The middle names will be Eric William and the last name is a 2 syllable name that begins with G and doesn't sound too much like any of the names.
ETA Darn! I forgot to add Elijah to the poll and now I can't figure out how to edit to add it. Does anyone know?
