I already posted this in my due date club, but I respect the opinions of the women here and woud love some input.

The good news: Our baby boy is over half-way baked!
The bad news: He has no name

In order for us to start feeling like a family we would like to get a name asap. The below list has been lowered from about 30 and each name has a significant meaning to my husband and me. Our someday-maybe daughter has already been named and her first and middle initials are OD. We use both our last names so there is no concern with initials spelling out something weird.

Our picks: one will be first, 1 will be middle

I like Jeffery Douglas, but how would you feel about someone calling him JD? I have no thoughts on that one...

Picking names is so personal and so hard, I hope you find a combo that you and your hubby both love

Odin Jeffrey ??

I like the name Odin...it's the one I keep going back to on your list....but there are a few that I really like....Sorry I couldn't be more helpful....
Momma to Emma, Elzie, Gretchen, Olive, and Rogan

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

My favorites from the list are Martin and Dominic. I think I would probably go with Martin Douglas, but then the middle name ends up sounding kind of last-namey (the whole thing sounds like a full name). So I'm not sure. It would depend on how it sounds together with your last name.

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!

I though the same thing! I really like the name Dedrick, so maybe Dedrick Orion or Dedrick Odin? Then he would have opposite initials from his future sister
