This is it... I've been looking for a middle name for my baby, just found out today that it's a boy. I'll probably spell it with a 'K', but, for meaning 'like the heart', it's a appropriate. He is our heart! =D

My son's name is Caeleb Josiah. I spelled his name with the extra "e" because I thought it gave just a little extra personality. Besides, growing up with the name "Tracy"--everyone always spelled it "Tracey"--I gave Caeleb the extra "e."

I have twins named Caleb and Noah. I picked these out because of the temperments they had in the womb. Caleb means bold, and man, would he kick. Noah means rest, and he would just kind of roll around. It's just funny, so I thought I would post the story.

Caleb is a name i've always loved. Cant decide over what spelling...
Anyways, im not religious, but it's cool it has a good meaning in the bible, incase he becomes religious. Kinda hard to find decent middle names to fit though, however i've found 1 syllable words often work. Any suggestions for middle names to fit?

My youngest son is Caleb Andrew and he's now 14. His brothers are Joshua Alexander and Nathan Charles. I worked hard on their names and the meanings to fit the type of men they would become. Middle names are family names. My older two boys are fathers no and my grandchildren are Ezra, Lily and Max...I love those names! Max isn't even born yet, but any day now I'll get to meet him.
