Greetings all!


First, thanks. Seriously. People laugh when you tell them you're stressing about naming a kid, but it's IMPORTANT STUFF!




We've already got two boys, expecting our third in October. Big brothers are named Victor James and David Joseph. Calvin seems to be the first name we're settled on, now we just have to get to work on that middle...


It does need to be a J, to match the 'naming thing' we started with the first two. BUT- there are lots of restrictions. No ending in n, like the first name, or l, the start of our last name. Otherwise he'd be Cal Jonathan or Cal Joel and it'd be done :)


James and Joseph are already taken (obviously) so no repeats. 


We're fairly traditional people, so we'd like it to be a classic name with classic spelling. Bonus points for biblical origins!


Recently I found the name 'Jedrek' and really liked that, mainly appreciating the hard K at the end, matching the starting sound of Calvin... 


I really am being picky. 


Thanks for any and all help, community. You're great. xox

If you want to make it fit with his brothers' names, you're going to need to do a more common J name. 


Calvin Jack or Calvin Jacob are probably best for you. Calvin Jeremy is another substantial option.

I do like Jeremy- we were leaning towards Jerome too. I don't know why Joshua hadn't shown up on our radar either- it's a common name and sounds pretty good too!
