So we found out Wednesday that we're having a boy, and we finalized the name. Thing is, we're keeping it a secret until birth, but I'm dying to share with somebody!
So, berries, the name is......
I really like it. Also the nickname Abe. :)

No, especially because most Isaacs I've met are Jewish and most Gabriels I've met are Christian.
Hmmm.... Marina and Eleri, you say?

Of all the first name options, Owen is my favorite. BUT all your names, and all their combinations, are lovely. So you can't go wrong! Congrats!! :)
It's a stretch that you'd have to explain if people ever asked how the names are connected, but.. all that really matters is your husband thinks it's close enough. :)
Personally I love Finn.

I was always struck by how beautiful the name "Mark" was in Bridget Jones' Diary, but how abrasive and abrupt I find it in an American accent like my own!
Thanks for your help everybody.. We just found out it's a boy :)
Thanks everybody so far! All very useful feedback!!! I am loving all the love for Ruth... I was worried it was too old lady-ish! :)
@Rollo, I totally forgot Leona means "lioness"... Makes me love...
I've always had a soft spot for the sound of the word Patriot. Sort of like a prettier Patrick. But it's way too cheesy to name a kid, and sounds like you're deciding his feelings for him!
Poll: Middle names for Ruth?
We find out tomorrow if this bump is a girl, and one of our top contenders is Ruth ("Ruthie") to honor a family member.
We would also like to use a family name in the middle spot, and are...
Such a beautiful name! No need for name shame! I don't share names while pregnant either because I actually don't want the advice of friends and family. So I know what you mean about it killing...

Love them together. Yes, they're a little similar, but I feel that matters less for nicknames.
I really like it. I'm a fan of alliterative names, since I personally find people with them harder to forget.
My vote is for Calla. :-)

This is something that's been bothering me a long time, but since we're discussing it...
The "low class" thing. It bothers me first of all because the class connotations. You can argue all you...
Thank you everybody! This makes me feel better. Seems like some areas have more than others but it's hopefully not going to be Emma.
Wesslee... Though now that you say it I've heard both ways. I think people will say whatever you and he say it as.
Is Nora ridiculously popular? We're debating it if this bump is a girl, but two distant friends both have a Nora(h), so it feels very used to me. However, we both like it, and like that it would...

I much prefer Remy. I posted once about whether Rudy was too cutesy or not enough name on its own, and the overwhelming consensus was that it's totally fine. I think the same goes for Remy.

Oh yes. My brother grew up as a Ben and nobody ever thought to call him Benji (which I actually like) or Benny.
I'm glad you like Ben, though, because I think it's impossible to avoid with...
I really like Luther. I think of Martin Luther or MLK, but Lex Luthor came to mind, too. (And I'm not even into super heroes, I had to Google to see where I've heard that! )
Regardless I think...

Kids will probably be using a completely different slang by the time he's old enough to understand. Also, it could be a really cute birth announcement: "OMG, it's OMG!" :)
EDIT : I would probably choose Reid Lawrence over Andrew Lawrence. Since Andrew Lawrence is an actor.[/QUOTE]
Reid is me, Andrew is another poster. :)
