    Naming our Triplets...Bible Names? Family Names? Help!

    We are "due" in November. Three little babies on the way!
    And we have no clue what to name them...
    We like the idea of using a family name...
    But more so a biblical name...
    Maybe both?
    Also, we are not finding out the sexes of our babies..so tentatively with need 3 boys names, and 3 girls names that go well together....interchangeably.
    Maybe Biblical names with family middle names?
    Should we give them all the same initials? Or switched initials?
    At such a loss here...
    We don't agree on any names...so don't even have good options!

    What about the possibility of unisex names? Are there any good biblical unisex names?

    Family Names:
    Johan, Thomas,Bocker, Eugene, Kristopher, Rafal, Matthew, Alexander, Dennis, Chuck/Charles and Haven.
    Lucille, Louise, Johann, Judith, Virginia, Teegan, Heidy

    Congratulations! I'd recommend picking up a copy of Linda and Pam's last print book Beyond Ava & Aiden. On page 199, there's a great section on sibling names and gives very good suggestions on twins which would also work for triplets. It's under the Store tab under books. You can check my signature as well for some guidelines that you could use when choosing to name your offspring. What's some of the names within your family and spirituality that you're considering using and why?

    Shadrach, Meshach & Abendigo? (sorry for misspellings, haven't read the story for awhile) :-)
    or some combination of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John?

    I think I'd choose Samuel, David and Levi.

    And for girls...Magdelana, Keziah, Marguerite, Mariah, Ruth, Eva, Elizabeth, Sara, Leah, Rebecca...and that's about all I can think of that I like (except Delilah and Salome)...women don't come off so well in the Bible.
