    lainy,thanks for your input! I agree that Jovie could work as a nickname for Josephine. I don't have a V family name to use in the middle, but I still think it works. And I could see calling Quade...

    I'm a big proponent of honor names. I think the ideas you have are terrific. Les is a fine nickname or going by his middle name is a viable option.

    oregano7, the more I think about it, the more I am inclined to agree with you. If we end up going with Josephine I may see if Jovie feels like a natural nickname direction. Thanks for your input.

    I have a major soft spot for Gerard. I'm not overly fond of Gerry but since it would have a family tie in for you it's quite usable. I'd swoon over meeting a baby Gerard :)
