I have always liked Sage for a boy or a girl, and also for a boy Jaxson, and call him Jax. There are so many names out there to choose from have fun!

We got so hung up over agreeing on a name for each one of our boys. Finally, we started yelling names out the back door to see what they would sound like to our neighbors. We also brain stormed about how they could be twisted around or nicknamed by other kids. That helped weed out a lot of names! We also thought about how it would sound when it was read allowed in it's entirety. Imagine your kid sitting in the classroom and the teacher (or job interviewer in later life) saying the name out loud in a group. Can they pronounce it? Is it so oddly spelled that people butcher it any time they try to say it? Will his name sound juvenile even into adulthood? These are the tests I would definitely use to qualify any that you just love.

My oldest son is Christian Alexander! I've gotten TONS of compliments on it, and we've never met another christian! It's such a strong name =) However, it drives me crazy when people call him Chris......I always say that if I wanted him to be called Chris I would have named him Christopher, Christian in one of those names where although it's long, you gotta say the whole thing =)

I have a daughter and son. Gabriella (21mnths) and Elijah (6wks). I liked the name Caleb also but there is a Caleb in the extended fam. already. We went with biblical names with good meaning so they can be blessed and walk with confidence. Gabriella (from Gabriel) means "Devoted to God". Elijah means "The Lord is my God.



Your son Dane's name means "Blessed". If you were to go with Caleb it means "Faithfull"



Good luck with the name searching, i know its very hard to decide.

I have a friend who named her son Kessler "Kessie" although they were debating on Crosby which I love. Not sure if they go with kane though.

Gracen (aka Grayson), Koehler (aka Coler), Luciano (Luke), Spencer (my son's name), Dario, Seamus, Samuel, Kye, Thad, Ephram, Eli (Elijah)... if you can look up old documents like phone books from early century or registries in the local library. They have tons of old names we never hear or use anymore, and they aren't all archaic or bad!!

my sons name is jubal simon (pronounced Ju-bull). other names we have picked out are xavier mathias and logan daniel. also like chase tyler, zander, josiah, etc. we like unique names paired with biblical names.

Go online and type in your heritage and 'male names' (Irish male names). Also, you could look up sacred places in regard to your ethnic background. That's how I named my daughter; we;re Celts, so I named her Avalon.

I have this really cool book that says that you can guide your childs life just by giving him a strong name. I looked up all the names of people I knew and it was eeeerie! how on the money it was. So look for names that mean wealth luck and happiness. Robert, Richard, Maximus etc. Congrats!

My son's name is Lucas David, I had a few choices in mind before he arrived, Lane, Landin or Wyatt. You will be able to pick a name easier when you see his beautiful face for the 1st time! Good luck!
