It's a BOY!!!

We're having a manchild! I thought about posting a picture to prove it, but thought better of broadcasting my son's "equipment" across the Internet :-) Our tentative due date is Aug 6th. Here's a more modest pic: Posted by Picasa

Congrats on the boy Mihelis! You have to name him John.

Congrats, Mihelis! I am actually partial to the name Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.

I love the suggestions, keep 'em coming. It's pretty likely John will be in there somewhere. Sorry Russell, but your suggestion is probably going to be low on the list :-o Here's some of the current options:
Noah
Connor
Clay
Jeremiah
Andrew (Drew)
If he had been a girl it was definite: Sophia Joy. Needless to say, we've gone back to the drawing board.

Just name him "Big Daddy" -- then there will be no doubt who's in charge.

Congratulations! We are so happy for you both! I'm so glad that you are having the children first so that you can make the mistakes and we don't have to :o) Just kidding; i'm sure you'll do a great job. Just whatever you do, if we have a girl, keep your boy AWAY from her :o)

p.s. I think that Connor, clay and Jeremiah are great... only because we personally like Noah :o) But, don't feel like you can't use it if you're dying to, I mean it is your child after all!

That's exciting Mihelis. A buddy of mine a DBTS just named his son Carson. Congratulations.

Congrats. How about Rudolph Bultmann Mihelis?

NWMihelis said...

Eaaaaasy Bruno! :-)

I think you should name him after a hard-core Reformed Theologian -- Meredith Kline. Enough said.

Congratulations! I excitedly showed Phil how I stumbled onto your blog & that you were having a boy--he immediately said "are they naming him Calvin?" I personally think it works wonderfully with the name John!

Thanks Julie! Good to hear from you. Calvin is a possible middle name, though we don't want to be too overt :-) However John is the front runner for a middle name. The benefit to John is if you allow for sensus plenior, it can refer to (and in descending order of important theologians) John Piper, John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, John Owen, John Bunyan....you get the idea. It even covers Biblical referents like the Apostle John and John the Baptist. :-)

PS, If we go with Connor his name will actually be Concurrence (ie the reformed doctrine of Providence/Sovereignty) but we'll still call him Connor. However, I think Noah is currently the frontrunner for first name.
