Awkward silence

Talking to my FIL and he asked what were naming our child. We have this long conversation before hand. I tell him the name and he says "for sure?" I said yes, we love the name. He never writes back.

He knows we like non traditional names. And no we won't change them because someone else doesn't like them.

Our sons are
-Austin, Knox and Devon

New baby will be Lincoln. Regardless of sex.

Yeah I didn't think Austin was too out of the box but Knox was. Lincoln Adelle or Lincoln Kane will be this babies name

If we have g/g twins, we're naming them:
Alice Mea Madeline Orlando
Caroline Anne Macy Orlando
Yep. AMMO and CAMO. My FIL hates the idea of those names. Our boy names picked out are all city names, since our last name is Orlando. So like Dallas Austin and such. I like the names you picked. I think they're fantastic.
