My son is Caleb Anthony Dylan. Caleb I dreamed of years before I had him and I knew that would be his name. Anthony was his dads middle name and Dylan is my brothers name.

My daughter is Sophia Nicole Rose. Sophia because it went well with princess... yeah, I knew she would be a princess and we loved it. Nicole for my sister. Rose... about a week before she was born I decided she needed a more hippy name. So I went with rose, after her great aunt. She passed away earlier this year so it worked out.

Romeo Gabriel; his dad chose romeo since we we're like 15 so when i fell pregnant it was already set up five years early :p
Gabriel his middle name was cause my mom had a dream that an Angel named Gabriel blessed my son so i thought it was cute.
My second son Rogan Joshua; Rogan again his dad. And Joshua cause when i first saw him i thought " it's joshua, my baby is a Joshua, he looks like one" lol maybe too much pain killer after surgery or an epiphany who knows.

 My oldest was named after my favorite aunt/godmother Marjorie, we choose thing while still dating and he chose her middle name of Rose.  Our youngest was name after hub' s grandmother Hallie and he also choose Anne after many family members have that in their name.  Our son took us months going back and forth-then one night while watching wrestling we came up with Austin from Stone Cold Steve Austin and then changed Vince (vince Macmahon) to Vance and came up with our son.

Caleb Jordan- he's got his dads middle name. Wanted to name him after his dad, but didn't want to be calling the same name for both :) And it's a Biblical name. Jordan because we liked the name. And again, it's Biblical. He's 6.

Lucas Matthew- I've always liked the name Lucas. It means "light" and we also liked Luke, but we wanted a little different twist on it, so that's what we did. Matthew is another Biblical name. And another one we just really liked.

My daughters are named after monarchs. Catherine the great, queen Elizabeth and now princess Sophia. (Yes there was a real one not just the cartoon one) my sons name was in the bible. Nathaniel was the advisor to king Solomon

In my family, traditionally we all have four names. A family name, a biblical name, a name that matches it all, and our last name.
