So, my wife and I will be having (actually she'll do most of the having, I'll be fetching ice chips and lending my forearms as a scratching post) our third child in June. We're in need of a good baseball name for either a boy or a girl. She doesn't want to know the sex. Our two sons Henry Adam and Ty Gregory are both named for a baseball icon and a religious figure. The problem is we've shot pretty high with Hank and Ty. Teddy, Willie, Joe, and Pete have all been ruled out for various and sundry reasons. I need some suggestions for boy names as well as girls. The current front runners are Jackson Thomas (after the shoeless one and the doubting apostle) and Morgan Rose (no explanation needed). I've offered up Eppa for a girl on countless occasions only to be shot down. Jackson Thomas is also on the brink after I suggested his nickname could be Stonewall.

I'd love to offer more than a stock smiley for your input, but it's all I've got.

Thanks in advance.

Casey is a good unisex name, plus it comes with a built in nickname of "The Mayor"

I like your Morgan Rose and little Stonewall Jackson choices too:)

"I was named after a Hall of Famer. I think this is the first time it's ever happened that a guy's ever come into the Hall of Fame that was named after one. Before I was born, my father lived and died for baseball and he named me after a Hall of Famer: Mickey Cochrane. I'm not sure if my dad knew it or not, but his real name was Gordon. I hope there's no Gordons here today, but I'm glad that he didn't name me Gordon. "

Why doesn't she want to know the sex? It makes things so much easier. All of your gifts won't be yellow and ducks. I have heard the reasoning of "we want to be surprised." You can be surprised at the ultrasound. "Surprise....your having a........."
Makes things a lot easier for the people buying your gifts too, if they know the sex. A yellow baby room full of ducks is generic, and they might grow up wanting to sell insurance.:laugh: :laugh:

I like the Jackson Thomas is very nice actually, and he's most likely to be called Jack more often than not.

Morgan Rose is nice too.

We joked with with our kids we'd name them Ozzie Smith, Willie McGee, but our son's name is Peter and we toyed with the name Margaret Rose and then laughed that we could call him Pete Rose...

You can't go wrong with Ruth - that's a two-fer - baseball and bible!

The litmus test we had for children's names was how it would sound being announced at a graduation commencement.

If you think people might giggle, roll their eyes, or exchange quizzical looks, then keep looking for names.

Believe me, we've heard some doozies. As my wife said, "what in God's name were people thinking?".

We've got 2 actually. It has to sound like a CEO and a person I'd let work on my car.

As for not finding out the sex, I'm with you. I wanted to know, my wife wanted another surprise. For me the surprise of having a third baby was enough.

But I don't think I would wish than name on a baby.

There is a Welsh name Gwyn which you could always spell Gwynn.

This is almost as entertaining as when my sister in law were trying to decide what breeds of dogs should be named after the 2007 Reds line up...

When in doubt, use a name of a street sign s'what I did.. just sayin... And just so you know... all three of my kids are mad because they can't find any personalized stuff with their names on it... that should have been in my criteria...

With the first child we both just wanted a name we liked. We narrowed it down to 2 names, Grant and Gavin. We leaned toward Gavin. When my oldest was born we both looked at him, and then looked at each other and almost instantly it hit us. The kids name had to be Grant. It was weird. It was almost like someone from above told us to name him that. It hit us both at the same time and while my wife was holding him in the bed I said "I think we should name him Grant," and she said "I was just going to say that," even though we had both wanted to name him Gavin just 20 minutes earlier. So we went with that. We gave him the middle name of Alexander because it sounded good and prestigious.

Our second son was named after two people that passed away shortly before he was born. My wife's cousin was in a car wreck and passed away. His name was Chad. We named our second son after him. My Grandfather also passed away during the pregnancy and we made my Grandfather's name his middle name. Chad Antonio.

We're clueless on a name for the third one due in September. Have to find out the sex first (2 weeks away) so we can narrow down the choices.
