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

Eliminate Joshua, Jaw are terrible initials, the jokes growing up could be horrendous. I love Gideon Alexander. It is strong and special in every way just like your little man. God Bless and GL

We have considered that, and the initials are not used enough for it to be a big enough deal. But thanks for mentioning it.

My youngest’s name is Joshua, however Josh Walsh sounds a bit awkward. I love the name Gideon! Ethan is a little overused

GIDEON!!!!!!! There are so many Joshua’s and Ethan’s out there. Gideon not only has a fabulous story behind it, like you mentioned, but, its also the most underused of the three, which is a good thing. I think Gideon Alexander is AWESOME. GL.
