Boy's name

Hi All. Have 2 DS and am expecting DC3. Not going to find out gender so am trying to find both boy's and girl's names. Our existing sons have unusual biblical names so ideally would like another biblical name. So far we are considering:

Samuel Arthur - DS1 loves the name Samuel and I like it too, just a bit gingerbread because it's a lot more used that DS1 and DS2 name and would hate DS 3 to feel less special.

Abraham Thomas - like this, but is it too weird?

Thanks and please be honest.

Sorry meant that Samuel was more widely used. Don't know what phone did there.

Love Abraham - classic and not overused.

Sam is ok but very widely used already.

I don't think Abraham is weird at all. Once you start using it over and over, it takes on a new light I think. All depends on weather you shorten names or not. I don't like shortening names myself, but that's me. Samuel is also good, but you shouldn't be afraid of using Abraham if that's what you like. Good luck!

I think Abraham is a great name - well known, not weird at all. Personally I find it nicer than Samuel (Sam) which is a little dull in comparison, sorry.

Friend called her baby Ezra for much the same reasons as you. Aaron was the other name she considered.

Abraham I like it - not sure with the Thomas though

What about


I would give so girl unusual biblical names but tbh I don't like the very unusual ones (and I sruggle to like the 'normal' nes eg Ruth) But Ester is nice as is Sarah

Ooh, if our DC2 (due Oct) is a boy he will be Thomas Abraham!

So definitely like Abraham Thomas! Bram as a nickname esp good, but Abe ok too.

Thanks all. That's a lot more positive than I feared. We won't decide for definite until DS 3 is born but Abraham may be on shortlist.
