Ethan Alexander vs. Gideon Alexander vs. Joshua Alexander

My pregnancy has been difficult and dangerous from the beginning. We weren’t supposed to be able to have kids. It’s a miracle I got pregnant, and a miracle we survived the first trimester, but this has not been an easy road, and we’re facing our last 3 weeks with new concerns as well as relief that it’s almost over. His middle name is Alexander, after my husband. For a first name, we’re torn between Ethan (which means "Strong" / "enduring"), Gideon (after the Biblical Gideon whose army won a battle despite all odds being stacked against them), and Joshua (for the Biblical story of faith despite adversity). Which do you think is best? -Alex & Jenny Walsh

Terra in Oklahoma
It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
