Am searching for inspiration for a friend who has just had a surprise boy! Any ideas?

Google gives me:
REUBEN. Hebrew meaning 'Behold a Son'
BENNETT. Latin meaning 'Little Blessed One'
NATHANIEL. Hebrew meaning 'Gift of God'
MATTHEW. Hebrew meaning 'Gift of God'
THEODORE. Greek meaning 'Gift of God'

Mostly religious based. How about 'Miracle' as a middle name? grin

Peleh and Nissan are boys' names which mean miracle! Can't find any which mean surprise.

There are some nice names with a "gift" related meaning, such as Matthias, Jonathan, Solomon, Theodore.

Thanks

She could name him Jesus and always pronounce it like an exclamation.

We chose Felix in similar circumstances. It means happy (felicity) and can also mean fate.

Though not religious, we chose one of the 'gift of god' names above, as he really did feel a miracle to us. A gift anyway. smile

You could call him "Oh Shit!" but he might resent you for it when he's older.

Spanish for miracle is "milagro" which doesn't sound too bad- as a middle name?
