    Tricky cross-cultural situation

    Here's a scenario: Mom and Dad are expecting a baby. Mom is Jewish and Dad grew up in a Muslim/Christian household. They want to find a name that honors all three of their religious backgrounds. What names would you suggest for this family?

    Joseph would probably be the natural/boring choice. It's quite popular, familiar, and used in all three.

    I'm no expert, but I would think just about anything from the Old Testament would work.
