We have ALWAYS had the name Brady picked out.... for YEARS. So of course when we found out months ago that its a boy - we announced to the world his name, Brady James. (James is my husbands deceased brothers name - middle name is a must - not optional). WELL - NOW all of the sudden I woke up one night and decided I might like to name him after my stepfather who adopted me. Anthony. (Anthony James) It would mean SOOO much to my Dad. He would just be so touched. He is probably the most excited person in the world to be having a granchild any day now. I REALLLY dont know what to do! I keep fighting with myself. I love Brady - bc I do not knowANYONE with a child with that name. Its unique in my area.... Anthony on the other hand is very common.... I like the idea of having a unique name - thats why Brady has ALWAYS been my choice. oh my gosh---- I need some advice, seriously, I am due NOW!Answer Question

We finally narrowed our choices for our son down to two names the night before he was born. It was the day after he was born that we made a final decision. We were definitely using my FIL's name for the middle name, but the first name was either going to be my husband's name or our other choice. We decided to go with the other choice because we didn't want the confusion of having two people in our home with the same name.
My sister named her son after our dad, and her son is stuck with the nick-name of "Little ______". If you name your son Anthony he will likely end up with some sort of nick-name to identify himself within your family. I like using family names, but you really do have to think about what you'll call him to differentiate him from his namesake. I'm not fond of using 3 names, but that is another option.
