I vote for the name Joshua, coz in the Bible it was Joshua who found the promise land. Congratulations to you my friend, hope you have a nice day.

Joshua The Meaning - God is my salvation. Biblical context Origin - Hebrew. Joshua was the minister of Moses and the commander of the army of Israelites. He was a brave warrior who defeated six kings and conquered thirty-one kingdoms. The book of Joshua in the Old Testament tells his story.

I think Andrew is a very cute name, I have a few friends name Andrew.. Than again i like all the names you picked out but Andrew would be a name I'd pick for my son, no wait i picked Aaron lol Thats a cute name too! I'm sure though you and your husband will come up with a really nice name that matches your son. And congratulations on your soon to be born baby!

i have just seen how the four names are tied at one a piece. hahaha purely unintentional of course. but at the end of the day, please choose a name that is both significant and endearing for you and your husband. :)

I like the name Andrew the best out of the names you have chosen. In fact, if we have another little boy, his name will be Andrew Marc. We will probably call him Drew. We want a name that we could shorten, because it seems like everyone wants to shorten our son's name, but there aren't really any good nicknames for it (Elliott). Our next baby will have a name that can be shortened. I really like the way Andrew sounds in it's complete form, too, though.

In order of how I like them... Ryan, Andrew, Joshua, David. Funny though...My brother's name is Andrew Ryan. Good luck deciding. They are all very straight forward, masculine names.

I really love the names Joshua and Ryan, they are not as common as david and Andrew, and they sound distinct, and strong. Congrats on your boy. My youngest was born September 5th. (he'll be one soon) (time goes by fast...)

This is a really tough one lol......We are due to have our 8th baby and I was hoping for a Girl but also to found out it was a boy.....All the names you have here is what I had picked lol....I would have to say I really enjoy the name David! I find with Josh so many people are picking this name again, Ryan I enjoy but used as a middle name with my last son (Timothy Ryan) and Andew is cute but they do grow up lol......Its so hard when trying to choose a name but I find that once you see your little man it will be a whole lot easier =) A Big Congratulation!!!!!! and please do keep us all posted Stacy

They are all nice names and I actually like 2, andrew, which I like because it can be shortened to andy or drew and I also like Joshua.
