What do you do with boys? vs. Ahhhh! vs. Need help!

Okay, so my name is Christine and my DH is Patrick. We have 4 daughters: Kathleen who goes by Kate (13) Isabelle (10), Lucy (6) and Evelyn (6). Well, we weren’t planning on 5 kids, but here we are. We were stunned when they told us our 5th was a boy! We are at a complete loss here. We can’t agree on a nursery theme, his name, what toys to get, clothes, etc. I am just hardwired for little girls. My husband knows what boys like, but all of those things are stuff he can’t to until at least kindergarten like sports, dirt, running etc. So, we thought we would get some outside help. What did you buy for your newborn baby boy? We have the basics: white crib, porta crib, diapers, carseat. But, what about just for boys? What clothes? What theme would be cute for his room? I like a nautical theme, but the husand thinks cars and trucks would be cooler. All my kids came early, and I am 38 weeks now. As for a name, we like Owen, Andrew, Ryan & Elliot. Anyways, I would love some advice, plus what names you like. Thank you! You are our life savers. Hopefully I will have time to get everything done before little boy gets here :) -Christine

We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?
Baby Name Genie:
Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
