Ahhhh, John Avery Whittaker, lol. Gotcha. You're going to have to post a thread with lists of your first name, middle name, family name considerations, so one has full disclosure on what's actually available for re-arranging into a combo. If Everett Joshua Charles is perfection, then maybe you don't want to consider Saxon or Saxony along with Charles (or Everett). And yeah, Boaz Saxony is a little out there, and that's coming from ME, hahaha!
wow, a lot of cool ideas here!
What about Arthur? mARTin luTHeR
bahaha, that's hilarious. That would be one long thread! I'm not sure I could even form it into words. I didn't think I was terribly picky as far as names go, but I've been on name boards for probably close to 5 years now and I think I've just honed down what it is I really want in a combo. Not that anyone else really knows what that is, lol.

Everett and Charlie would be a pretty cool sibset, though. :)
Yeah, I figured Boaz Saxony was a no-go, haha. I am tossing around Boaz Addison Peter, Boaz Atticus Peter, Boaz Frederick, and Boaz Benjamin, still, though.
As a proud Lutheran, I'm so jealous you have a connection to the reformer! Martinus was the name recorded when he entered the University. His father's name was Hans. For a girl, I would maybe think of Faith or Grace. Remember, he said we are saved by grace, not works.
Ahah, Ash, we're going to have to set up a screening process for said future husband: must be the right age, must have job, must approve the name list...
Sarah, lol, I really don't think I need to make the screening process for a husband any more complicated than it already is! Then again, I could be happy with an Isabella or an Emmeline or a Sylvia, or anything in between. As long as he doesn't try to get me to use a unisex name for a girl, I don't think we'll have too much trouble compromising. :)
@bigsweater - haha, my dad's family are very proud Lutherans, as well! My dad sort of swapped denominations on them, so I'm not Lutheran, but I do appreciate where I came from. Besides, it's not guaranteed that I have a connection to him, but it would be so cool if I did!
