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

Elizabeth in Montana
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.
