The name is....


As of now, his name is Hudson. Hudson with no middle name.

I absolutely can not get Ryan to budge on Sullivan, although I adore the name. The only name we agree on is Hudson, so Hudson it is.

I just can't seem to feel like its "the name", do you know what I mean? I kind of felt that way with Porter's name, so I'm hoping that if we try it out on the little dude in utero, that maybe it'll just start to feel like his name, just like Porter's did. If we stumble across something we (err I) love even more (and can convince Ryan to go along with), we'll go with that. But, for now, he is Hudson.

I bought letters for his nursery, but I'm holding off on painting them. That's how unsure I am. Its just such a weird feeling. I still keep calling him "the baby" or "baby brother." Note to self: Must try to use name when referring to him.

I should tell you... in order for me to agree on Hudson, I told Ryan this was my stipulation:
1) *IF* we have Child #3 and *IF Child #3 ends up being Boy Child #3, then I get 100% first-name naming rights.

Isn't that mean of me?

Anyhow, maybe I just need to find a great middle name for him. So far, the names we like are:

Hudson Oliver (Oliver meaning "peace")
Hudson Avery (Avery meaning "nobility")
Hudson Isaiah (Isaiah meaning "God is salvation")

Porter's middle name "Evan" means "God is gracious". I really want a middle name with some sort of good meaning. Any ideas?

I really like the name Hudson, it was my fave. I'd go with Isaiah, it sounds nice. I like Oliver, but it reminds me of Oliver Hudson too much. Great choice!

I am a total lurker, but I wanted to add that I LOVE the name Hudson :) I like the way Hudson Isaiah sounds, but looove Oliver, too. Actually, Kate Hudson has a brother named Oliver Hudson :)
FWIW...I didn't 'get' Violet for a loong time, even after she was born it didn't 'feel' right..but now, 19 mos. later, I can't imagine her as Ella anymore :)

You know I am more of a fan of the name HUDSON than any one else! Any of the middle names work really well. Good luck on that one.
