It's official.

We're now taking baby boy name suggestions. Because of course, I had my girl name all figured out. =) This little one likes to move- a lot! He was sucking his thumb for the camera during part of the ultrasound too. If he keeps that up after his birth he will be our first thumb sucker. So, although he's baby #7 in the line-up, I think we're in for a few surprises anyway. That's part of what makes babies so special. They are all individuals and so unique!
We'll be anxious to meet him in person.
As soon as he puts on a bit more weight. =)

Congratulations! I had a feeling it was a boy, but then again, I almost always guess boy when someone announces their pregnancy and lately I'm always wrong. :-P Good to hear he's so active and doing so well!

I've wanted a son named Aaron since I was twelve (who knows why I decided then that it was the perfect name, but it sure did stick). Alas, God blessed me with three girls (and I wouldn't change it for the world!). I know you seem to prefer less traditional names, but just thought I'd throw it out there! I'm sure whatever name you choose will be perfect for your little thumb-sucker!

My daughter was going to name her baby Elias if it was a boy. I love that name. I think I told you in a previous comment they are going with Nora Rose for their little girl.

You come up with beautiful unusual names. I can't wait to hear what you pick.

Congratulations Ferlaak's, on another sweet boy! How exciting!!! Let's see...as far as names go, I am more the old fashioned, strong masculine boy name kind of person -- my sons are Joseph, Gregory and Thomas :) so I think those are nice names ;) I wish you all the best.

Kelley said...

I am 31 weeks pregnant. We were going to use the name Maddox for a boy. We found out several weeks ago that the baby is a girl. So I will have 2 little girls.

Christi said...

Congrats on another little boy! I'd suggest Landon. It's not traditional but a nice strong name. Or there is Aiden, but that's become more popular recently. And I'm also partial to Evan because that's my little boy's name. :)

Congratulations, Family Ferlaak!
I often read your blog, and I'm always inspired by you, especially by the things you share about motherhood!
English is not my first language, but I've always liked the name Gregory.

I liked the suggestion of Asher...I also like Cade and Tate.

Red Door said...

Congratulations on another boy!! I thought for sure this one was going to be a girl. We have this cute little boy in a playgroup we frequent and his name is TOBIN. So that's my vote for this Ferlaak baby! (It means God is Good in Hebrew.) I also like Cullen.

Lucky little Crew gets a brother so close in age... that is awesome. Congratulations again on the newest little one!!

Evan Michael :)

Cathy said...

We have 2 girls (Madi and Ella) and one son named Leo. We liked it because it was a family name, simple and can't be shortened. I think you must like similar with Brock and Crew! If I had another boy I would use the names Jack, Charlie or Oscar.

Deb said...

Congrats on another little boy! Working in an inner city hospital, I have lots of baby names, but probably none that I would print! I do like the names "Riley" and "Ingram". Whatever you choose, he will be a blessed little boy!

Helen said...

I vote for Tobin as well. The meaning is beautiful, and so relevant for your outlook on life. Congratulations!

Veronica said...

My three sons are named: Timothy, Zachery and Jeremy....but I always wanted to name a son Adam...a strong name that is not used all that much anymore (I am a teacher and I get to use LOTS of names)...this year...I would never name a son Zane!!

Deb said...

Logan :)

Emmy said...

My newest favorite for a boy right now is Ryker. Congratulations!

kasey said...

Congrats! My favorite little boy name is Caden (that's because I have a little Caden, we also call him Cade! :) ) I also like the names Tucker, Cohen, Brycen, and
Ryder to name a few! :) I wish I was having another baby! I have 2 girls and a boy! My little guy needs a brother! sigh!

Wish I Might said...

God Bless!

Thank you again for your blog.

Cullen - my current fav name!!

Anonymous said...

Ha! My 11 year old son's name is Cullen. It was a family name.... long before Edward! :)

Crazy Family said...

First time commenter... long time follower here:) I just prefer to lurk!

We chose Finley for our second son and later found out that it means "fair-haired soldier". It has proven to be a strong and appropriate name for him. Have you ever met a Finn you didn't like???

Kim said...

My friend just had a baby named "Gage" and he is beautiful!
I also love the name Westin.
Congrats on you baby - I love following your journey!

Tracey said...

My sons are exactly 2 years apart to the day. We chose John Christian (nicknamed Jace), and Jackson Creed. As a name, Creed means "believer", which I loved. Congrats on the boy! They're wild and ornery, but I love mine to pieces! :)

Long time lurker here, but I just had to put in a word for my favorite boy name: JACK!

It means: God is gracious. My son is Jack Cooper (8), he goes by Cooper but I like to call him Jacky Jack or Jacky J or Jax. Jack is after my Grandfather. It is very traditional, but I love that name!

Then there's Luke, Blake and Will.

Congratulations, I know you will pick the perfect name for him...can't wait to meet him in photos!

My two boys names are Corbin and Bryson but if we have another his name will be Charles... we will call him Charlie. It's a family name and I just love that!

Janna K said...

Congratulations on having another boy! :) How exciting! :)

I have a friend with a son named Grant and I LOVE that name! I think Tristan is a cool name for a boy too.

Just my two cents. I know you'll pick an awesome name! All of your kids have such cool names! :)

God bless!!!

My favorite boy name is Hosea. I guess that is because that is my son's name :) Naming babies is so much fun, but also so much responsibility!

Casey Moore said...

If I could make a suggestion, it would be Jace Gabriel. I think it is strong but soft at the same time. I love all of your children's names. They are unique but not unusual. Very fitting from what I read about them and see in your blog.
Congratulations on another baby boy!! I have one girl and one boy, and I love both of them with all my heart. They are VERY different (as I know you already know) but I love so many different things about each one.
Congrats again! Can't wait to hear your decision!

Beck said...

A friend has three sons whose names jumped out IMMEDIATELY, if we hadn't already chosen a boy name: Bright and Brave. (Brave Ransom is his full name... isn't that fantastic?!)

Kelly said...

I commented when you announced last time you were expecting Crew so I will again. I love the name of Atticus Sebastian.

Anonymous said...

I love the name Creed, but I think that Tobin, which I also love would be a great addition to your family.

Amy said...

Congratulations! I will chime in as a long-time lurker, first time poster. . . you have so many great names already suggested! Our family names all start with A, meaning I like patterns, so I suggest a name that begins with a D since you already have Brock and Crew. . .Dean, Dane, Drew(ooh, it rhymes!)or Dax. Glad all is well!

Anonymous said...

I love your children's names and I think the next boy should be Chance, goes well with Crew and Chip.

The McKays said...

i've been reading your blog for awhile, but not sure if I've ever commented. congrats on your new baby-to-be!

our son's name is Curren. We love it. :) we also love the name Finn for a boy.

Chandra said...

Congratulations on a baby boy! I seem to like 4 letter names ;0) Gage, Kale, Finn, Becket (Beck),and Levi.
