Thomas was on the list for a boy with our second child, who was born a girl. I remember laboring in the fishy pool asking DH, "Is it Thomas or Charles?" We never decided which was fine because we have Rebekah Faye. Faye is my mom's middle name, so I picked a first name to go with it. Our son is Samuel Joseph Cassius. DH is Joseph, and his grandfather had Joseph Cassius for middle names. I did not realize how popular the name Sam is, though. A friend named her son Sam just 2 months after I had my Sam, and now they are going to be in preschool together. Somehow my little guy became "Sammy Joe" which he totally loves, so he will probably be called that forever.
This baby, if a boy, will likely be Jedidiah. We're thinking about Timothy, Peter, or Paul for the middle. The girl name I had picked for our son was Eva Grace, and I am liking that again. Lydia is another name I really like.
With my son, we had a boy name picked before he was conceived and took forever to come up with a girl name. With my daughter, we had the girl name picked, but no boy name. This time we have a boy name picked (before we conceived). Will this be a boy?
