What is the reason you named your child?

I am naming my FDS (Future Dear Son), due 3 March, after DH. I love the name JR. My dad had named my brother after him, so that is my reason!

  • We liked the names. With my oldest, his first name was all we could agree on. With our second, I told DH what his first name was and let him pick the middle name among a couple I liked. It was important to me to have a Gabriel.
