According to Ranae’s sonogram on Thursday, we have been blessed with another Bradd baby with standard equipment (i.e., a 5th son).
We’ve had a girl’s name ready for 10 years now, but alas, the negotiating has begun for the name of this son.
I kidded my wife that since we already have 4 A-names (Adin, Abel, Abram, & Amos), we should move on to the letter B–just to mess with people’s minds. :) She wasn’t as amused as I was.
The challenge is that we picked the name “Adin” because we liked it (and we wanted to use a Bible name that had a positive connotation). We did the same for “Abel” without thinking too much about getting locked in to A-names. But there we were. Abram & Amos came next. And now we debate the 5th Bible, positive connotation A-name. Actually, quite by accident, all of our current boys’ names use the LONG-A sound. That’d be nice to maintain, too. Oh yes, and it has to be a name we both like! LOL
Something is gonna give some where. Although I kind of like the name Asaph, Ranae shook her head and replied: “Can you imagine yelling that name down the street? Asaph! Asaph!” I responded: “Yes. What’s your point?” :)
Some of the others on the short list of potentials so far:
Aaron, Abner, Ananias, Andrew, Apollos, Asher
My wife loves the last choice listed. I like it too, save for the fact that the world already has an Asher Bradd living a couple counties away (cousin).
Have a wonderful day, fellows!
