Thoughts on Calvin?
So the girl I was SURE I was having, is not a girl at all!!
We're expecting our fourth child, who will be our 3rd boy. Our first two sons are Ian and Garrett. Calvin has always been in the running for us but then I start to get nervous about it and can't go through with it. In fact during delivery of our second son the nurse asked about names and my husband said probably Calvin and I almost went nuts! The crazy thing is that I really do like the name. I just seem to have commitment issues with it!
Does anyone have naming suggestions that might be similar to Calvin or would fit will with Ian and Garrett? His middle name will be James.
And does anyone have thoughts or experience on how to handle NOT naming a child after their grandparent? My husband was born on his grandfathers birthday and was then named after him (as in II). As it turns out, our son is due right around my FIL's birthday and my husband and I do not want to pass on his first or middle name, let alone the whole thing! To make it even stickier, our other two sons have family middle names (my hubby and my father). We'd prefer to use my husbands grandfather's name as a middle this time and skip his dad completly. Is there a way redirect any expectations of naming so there aren't hurt feelings after our sons birth?
