Which Do You Pick For A First Name For Our 1st Baby (a boy)
Hi-my husband and I are having our first baby, he is due Aug 27-Sept 1-so very soon! We have a short list of names we narrowed it down to (after a lot of searching and crossing off names and comparing each others likes and dislikes). My husband has a big family and we are trying to avoid doubling up on names. We like the idea of naming our baby with a short and simple name, and nicknames taken from longer names that are becoming their own name is fine with us. I think we plan on using Henry as the middle name (my husband's dad's middle name). Our last name is Schindler. Here are our ideas and reasons for them.
Will Henry- (we picked Will because we had trouble conceiving and our priest annointed/blessed us after we prayed for God's "will" for us, if God wanted us to have a baby or not have one, we would be happy either way, then we got pregnant a few months after that. I don't want to use William because that is my ex husbands name, he always went by the name Bill...so I never think of Will in relation to him and love the name Will-I think it's a short and sweet name).
Isaac Henry- (we picked Isaac because we liked the story of Abraham and Sarah in the bible not being able to conceive, then having their child Isaac at an old age-I will be having my first child at the age of 40..not that 40 is old, but maybe a little older than most when having their first. In one of our ultrasound photos the baby looks like he's smiling and Isaac means laughter. The only thing I hesitate on with this one is will our baby have to correct people most of his life on the spelling. I know there are a lot of variations on this name).
Drew Henry-(I love the name Andrew, but we have a cousin named Andrew-my husband isn't sold on this name because he doesn't want him nicknamed Andy- so we thought Drew would be a good fit and hubby likes the name Drew).
Any thoughts on any of these?

Isaac Henry sounds the best, in my opinion. I sincerely doubt you will have spelling issues with Isaac, as it is a very familiar Biblical names. I like the name Will, but Will Henry doesn't sound the best, and I'm not the biggest fan of Drew. Isaac Henry is a solid, strong combo, and congrats on your son!Amedeo Ariel Dmitri EnjolrasArtemis Cicely Elisabeth Evangeline Mirabelle Ophelia Rosalie Titania
