My recent periodic checkup to the OBGYN finally revealed the sex of my baby. He finally showed his healthy “turtle” form during the scan. I would have included the ultrasound picture here if not for the fact that I’m too lazy to scan the printout.
So, scrap my baby girl names. Off I went looking for the right name that matches Eric’s and Joel’s, and I tell you it wasn’t an easy for me to find a name that matches the “oel” in their middle names.
I think I’m going for either Ewan (“young warrior”) or Ezra (“helper”), and Roel or Yoel. I like the fact that Yoel means “the Lord is God” and it goes with the religious themes of the rest of my boys’ middle name, but it sounds too much like Joel. Roel sounds catchy, though the meaning “famous country” doesn’t mix well with my taste.
What do you think? Can you help me decide?
