We are expecting our third child. We have a boy and a girl already: Cruz Andres and Veda Josephine. I like that both of their names are four letters (though we’re not committed to four letters) and have spiritual ties, but I can’t seem to find a name that I truly love for a third child.

Our top names so far are Makaio and Eden. We have some family names we might use for the middles. I would love if you could offer me any suggestions at all. I don’t have any set rules for the names, but I want to love it, and I also want it to flow with Cruz and Veda.

In early editions of our first book Beyond Jennifer & Jason, we included a list called Names That Are Too Much, or Not Enough, To Live Up To.  Then somewhere along the way, we dropped it.  But clearly it’s time to bring it back.

Question of the Week: How do you feel about word names?

Of course the category of word names encompasses a lot of different types: nature names, color names, virtue names and other nouns (and the line between words and names sometimes blurs).

Which kinds do you and do you not like?

How about spiritual names such as Trinity, Serenity, Journey?

Musical names like Cadence, Harmony, Lyric?

Newer names like Dream, Story, Fable?
