When i has ds we had 3 names in the end (Amos, Herbert and Ernest) and decided after he was born. dh really wanted Herbert, I, Amos. We went for Amos in the endgrin.
Two years later, I think that although i still like Herbert, that I prefer Herb. My girls have nature themed names, and i think Herb might be a sweet addition.
However my sons both have Hebrew names, so maybe Herb would be out of place.
What do you think of Herb?
Would probaby be

Herb Josiah Michael

although i would love to put Merlin or Cosmo in there somewhere (Cosmo could be on a fn list)

I don't like Herb tbh. I just think that this could cause teasing/problems later in life. Josiah and Michael much more appropriate (imo). You could always call him"Herb" as a kind of affectionate nickname when he is tiny?

When is he due?

'Herb might be a sweet addition'

Josiah Michael is lovely, so is Michael Josiah

I laughed at Herb when I first saw it, but it has grown on me in the 40 seconds or so since I clicked on the thread. grin
