    Re: Due in 1 week and fearing we've selected the wrong name.

    Thank you for the honest responses. We're also not tied to a biblical name. I suspect this next baby is going to be more carefree in spirit than his older brother and would love your suggestions on light/breezy names, too.

    Judah does remind me of Judas, but Jude does not. What to put with Isaiah...

    Well, I know a family of Caleb, Eli, and Jonah - they all have the same feel as Isaiah!

    Asher - "blessed, happy"
    Adam - "of the Earth"
    David - "beloved"
    Gabriel - "God is my strength"
    Hiram - "exalted brother"
    Levi - "joined in harmony"
    Nathaniel - "gift of God"
    Noah - "rest, peace"
    Reuben - "behold, a son!"
    Zaccheus - "pure, clear, bright"

    I think Asher is perfect!

    I'm Jewish, so perhaps my comfort with your name further supports the trend you've noticed about feeling comfortable with Judah.

    More names I can see with Isaiah:

    Andrew
    Abner (nn Abe)
    Asher
    Benjamin
    Baraby (nn Abe)
    Charles
    Calvin
    Dashiell
    Edward (although Isaiah Edwards was a character on Little House on the Prairie) :-)
    Julian (and you could still nickname him Jude if you were comfortable doing so)
    Jasper
    Malcolm
    Phineas
    Samuel
    Thaddeus
    William

    Good luck! :-)
