Choosing a Name

He will actually go by Asher. We have been warned about the dangers of calling a child by his middle name but decided to learn our lesson the hard way.

Chosen by:
Mommy and Daddy (maybe a little more Mommy than Daddy)

We actually chose the name years ago. We found it, loved it and decided to keep it under our hats until we had the chance to use it. I have loved it this whole time. Ben wavered when we got pregnant but came back around just in time!

It is special because:
Benjamin (Biblical name meaning son of my right hand) is after Daddy. Asher is also a Biblical name and means “Happy and Joyful”. Asher and Ben will also have the same Monogram.

Other names we considered:
James, Henry, Grayson, Whitt, Sam and Quinn

I LOVE the name!! I think it's perfect and I love that he's named after his daddy! If we have a boy, we've decided to call him by his middle name as well. We can learn the hard way together!! : )

Don't worry about the middle name 'thing'. Taylor goes by his middle name and it is not a problem.
