Okay I'm currently 30  weeks pregnant and we just picked out a name for him. We chose Josiah. Well the other day at the doctors another women asked " oh so what are you going to name him ?" so I told her . Then here it goes the look , the sideways WTF look so i just laughed it off . So I just wanted to know how many of you have friends that gave there child a different name and you thought its was just the crazy thing ever?

Josiah is a nice name and it is biblical so I love it!! I named my son Malachi (the last book in the old testament) and it kills me how many people 1. can't pronounce it 2. ask me where I got it from or 2. tells me that is the evil child off of some movie.....well guess what it was a bible name way before some movie used the name LOL so anyway I love the name and where I live it isn't different!

I am sorry I must be dense today.  What is so crazy about the name Josiah?  Are you having a girl?

Don't worry about what negative ppl think. I think it a beautiful name. Congrats on your baby boy. I wish the best of luck to you and your family.  And as much sleep and rest as you can possibly get,lol.

Think of it this way:  there won't be 4 Josiah's in his class when he gets to school ;)

That was my goal with my son- I wanted to name him something individual but not too far out there.  So I picked Elijah.  I think Josiah fits perfect in that same category.

If you think people are giving you funny looks just tell them it's a family name and they tend to go "oh...okay" and smile.
