    Which one do you like best? We have narrowed it down to these 3 that we agree on so far, unless something else jumps out at us between now and then. So far it looks like Christian is winning between the two of us, but we also like the other two. Marc is the middle name, after my dad.

    I really like the name Connor. It is my first choice for if I ever have a son. I think that maybe Christian Marc flows better than Connor Marc, though.

    Hubby told me what the meaning of Connor was the other day...strong willed. HA HA HA! I hope if we go that route we don't jinx ourselves.

    I voted for Elijah. Unfortunately, a Connor and a Christian at my school have impacted my vote, even though I like the names!

    I loved Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins in LOTR too! So, I'm influenced by all the Elijah's I know and like!

    Well My Sons name is Peyton Connor so I like Connor, but I voted for Elijah because he was going to Peyton Elijah but dh really wanted Connor so since I got to pick my first borns name completely I gave him connor But I Love Christian too, I mentioned that one for Peyton But Matt had a friend named Christian who was not so chritian so he did not want him to think we were namng our son after him.

    But I vote for Elijah I really wish I had gotten Elijah in there.

    Tell me about it! Some of my other faves I can't use because they have these stigma's attached to them. Funny how that happens when you're a teacher.:D

    I like Christian myself. Used to like Connor too, before I taught one - strong willed is putting it mildly!

    I like all the names but picked Christian. I taught a very special little boy named Christian one year and it reminds me of him/

    I like Christian & Elijah. Would the initials be like anyone's in your family if you did either one?!? Just curious that might influence your vote as well.

    I voted for Elijah. I used to love the name Christian until it was jinxed for me. If I ever have kids I wont know what to pick because of teaching! Most everything will have some sort of association with a student!

    I like the name Conner but, since the middle name is going to be Marc, I like it better with Elijah. It seems to flow a bit better and sounds "stronger" to me. Good luck with your choice. I know what it's like to choose names. When we were deciding on our girls' names, we finally had to draw the first names out of a hat literally. They are Myleigh Ann and Madeline Dixie. The middle names, like your son's, were already set so we had to argue over the first names. My husband wanted Michaela (his name is Mike) but, being a teacher and knowing a child that was named that, I just couldn't get over it.:D Ah, the perks of being a teacher and knowing so many children. :p
