I make the poor husband talk about this all of the time, so we've finally settled on at least two.
I like abnormal names, and I want them to have lots of meaning.
Billy is one in a long line of Williams, so it must be continued. So far, none of them have been called Will, so I'm super excited.
We like Judah because it has Biblical meaning:
-It means "Praised"
-Judah was chosen to be in the line of Jesus (Genesis 49:10)
Plus, I love this verse:
We love Mercy because, well, it means Mercy, and we believe in a name being a legacy.
My dad had a little sister named Carmen who died from cancer when she was eight. I was the first granddaughter, and have been told I look like she did (or would have, since nobody knows for sure). Whether I truly do or not, my grandparents mean a lot to me, and so does preserving her memory.
It's also a really beautiful name.
Of course, none of this is set in stone. We're just dreaming.
