My husband and I plan to name our son Oliver Joseph, as the tradition in my family is to have the Hebrew name for the middle name.

What about you? Have you picked a Jewish/ Hebrew name for your child yet? Will it be their first/ middle name or a separate name used just for synagogue?

We're not sure yet. This is certainly one of the things we'll be discussing with the Rabbi on Thursday.

We're not sure yet. If I have a girl, I would like to name her Rachel after my great grandmother. Someone suggested to add a second name because rachel (biblical rachel, that is) had a very unhappy life. We would like to add a name that means happiness or something similar, but haven't decided yet. I also like the name Yael, but Rachel Yael kinda sounds weird, it rhymes
If it's a boy, we wanted to name him Nathan after my uncle, but he died young of cancer, I don't know if that's a problem or not. We'll ask about it and maybe also add a second name or something.
With David we used the same name for both Hebrew and secular names, I think I'll do the same this time. I thought that was easier. And where I live (Mexico) it isn't very common to have middle names.

My aunt suggested this to me, and I'm going to do it I swear!

Look up the Parsha for your due date, and find a name contained in there for the hebrew name. ? We are probably naming our son Elijah so we won't need a separate hebrew name, but we're not firm on that yet, so ... does anyone know a website where you can look up that stuff for the year?

My husband's grandfather is giving them their hebrew names which is somewhat a tradition in our family. I think as it gets closer we will sit down and pick some out together. Truthfully I care more about it then the non hebrew name.
