We've just had our second boy and he has no name. I really like Adam but my husband says it means first born and that we can't use it for a second son. First son is James aka Jamie so need something to go with that. Has anyone else called their second son Adam and had odd comments from people?
I didn't think people actually took much notice of the meaning of names so much these days. I think it's absolutely fine, I'm pretty confident you won't get people being when they find out he's second born!
Theres nothing wrong with it, I think Adam may mean Man as someone else has suggested. I know a third son called Adam, not a problem. Jacob means someone who 'pulls someones leg' or tricks them. Actually I did know a Jacob who was a bit of a wind-up merchant. Also Sarah is someone who laughs or is a princess I think.
