Shireen allows me to post again!

We (mainly me, Shireen's coming around...given enough time, she always does) are confident that God has lead us to name this son Caleb. Yes, in reference to the Caleb from Numbers 13 & 14 and Joshua 14. You absolutely must read to have a full appreciation. He is one of my favorite men from scripture. Second only to Jesus and Job I think. But I'll not be naming any of my sons Jesus or Job unless God writes on a wall.

Anyway, Shireen and I are struggling to find a middle name to go with Caleb. We have both made suggestions to no avail. So, we need your help. Please submit your suggestions. If we use your suggestion you win...absolutely nothing. But, we'll have a name! Thanks! -Russell

SOOOOO Exciting to have a name!!! Caleb was in our top 2 for boy names last time & this time around (it was beat out by #1 which I thnk we are going to keep a surprise!!...anyway) I really like the suggestion of Caleb Russell after you, we were going to go with Caleb Ryan (after ryan of course but I thnk it sounds really good)Anyway, good luck in your quest!

I love Caleb! But haven't had enough coffee to put it with another name... I'll be thinking and keep you posted. I do however see Karen said Caleb Matthew and that has a good sound to it! :)

How exciting to be able to call this sweet baby by a name! Caleb Wright has a good sound to it... :)Caleb William Wright? Caleb Russell Wright? What's your middle name, Russ??

Hey Shireen & Russell! Congratulations on another little boy! I love thinking of baby names and Caleb is one of my all time favorite names for a boy! As for a middle name...I love Matthew like Karen and Darby said, and Caleb Alexander, Caleb Michael, Caleb Harrison, Caleb Hayes, Caleb Parker, Caleb Austin, Caleb Grayson...okay, that's probably enough! Shireen - I'm so impressed with your sewing! Eleanor and I are getting into it too - we're taking a class at the Smocking Bird!

Hey Shireen & Russell,
Congratulations on another boy. when i read Caleb, John just came to mind. Two strong Biblical names (OT & NT to boot). Just my two cents. love to y'all. I do like Emily's suggestion of Caleb Alexander also. Caleb John & Caleb Alexander just flow.
