When Nick and I first got married he was stuck on the name Jase for a boy, though a cool name, I didnt like it, for my boy. Not long after Nicks cousin named her boy Jase! WOOHOO! That was out.
Then came the name Thornton.... OH MAN! Its Nicks grandfathers name, I DID. NOT. WANT. to name my kid Thornton, no way no how!!! I then agreed that if we had a boy we would use his grandfathers middle name Emerson... Well our next child was a girl and we were done with two kids.... so I thought..... So we made the name a little more feminine and added the y, Emersyn. Done. Then we got a suprise baby, our 3rd girl. Still got to avoid Thornton...
Then pregnancy number four, a boy.... Had to face Thornton, but by this point I had REALLY warmed up to the name, but just not THAT much. So I searched and searched, I read through hundreds of boy names. Then I saw it! It was perfect, fits our family. So his name is:
Ive been calling him Thor! I love it so much!
Gunnar is a male first name of Nordic origin (Gunnarr in Old Norse)
The name Gunnar means fighter, soldier, and attacker, but mostly is
referred to by the Viking saying which means Brave and Bold warrior
Thornton is a male given name and surname derived from Old English, meaning "settlement walled by strong thorn hedges" or "thorny estate dweller"
So a brave bold warrior of thorny estates.... HA
I think its a good strong name, especially since he will have THREE older sisters who will be dressing him up like a princess.... :o)
