My son was born 5 days ago (Boxing Day) and within a few hours, he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma (a cancerous tumor that begins in nerve tissue)... We would love for him to have a name with meaning, we do love the name Max and like the meaning behind that, so need some big help on middle names... I would like it slightly unusual, thank you smile

Sorry to hear of your DS diagnosis.

Ethan, Ekon and Jedrik all mean strong.

I would possibly just use the name Jed.

Jed Maxwell Surname has a nice sound to it.

Hi Lushh I'm so sorry about your son's diagnosis. I think a meaningful name is a great idea.

www.sheknows.com/parenting/articles/822603/boy-names-with-great-meanings has some pretty interesting usual suggestions

My personal favorite are

Lorcan - 'Little, Fierce'
Wyatt - 'Little Warrior'
Hagan - 'Strong Defense'
Remo - 'The strong one'
Cadmar - 'Brave Warrior'
Harding - 'Brave, Resilient'

Congratulations on the birth of your gorgeous little boy and I'm so sorry for his heart breaking diagnosis.
For his name. What about Gabriel. It's very fitting for a Christmas baby and it means strong man of God.
Love to you all. May God be with your little man xflowers
