What’s in a name?

Some of you may know that the first and middle names we’ve chosen for baby boy have the initials “J.E.”
My husband Jody (Eldon), his dad (Jerry Eldon) and his grandpa (Judd Elwood) all have the same initials as well, though each have different names (i.e. no juniors).

At first we weren’t sure if we were going to carry on the tradition because we couldn’t find a “J” name that we both really liked. As time went on, however, we found one that we both agree on, and, after we told it to Ava and she started calling the baby by it (though she calls him “baby brother” the majority of the time), it pretty much stuck. :)

Any guesses (both first and middle name)? We told some friends a while back that we were naming him “Jedi” and one of them has been calling him that ever since. ;) Maybe I will have a prize if anyone can successfully guess. :) Though I will not be revealing the name (or winner) until he is born.


Just a heads-up that I will likely be writing about my thoughts/opinions regarding circumcision in the next few days. Since we are having a boy this time around, whether or not to circumcize is something we obviously had to consider (though we both pretty much already knew our son would remain intact). However, I wanted to do some research on it and the things I read and saw only strengthened my decision to leave my son’s penis intact. So I’ll be sharing some of that in the days ahead.
