He will be named.

It was an ordeal, a process—sometimes a fight, but we finally landed on the perfect names for each of our children.  

I do remember in the process of throwing names around, there was a deep responsibility to our children.  After all, this name would become an important part of who each of them would be.  They would be known by the name we gave them for the rest of their lives.  

As we announced the names of each of our children, we knew there were no do-overs or second changes, and then right before our eyes--our sons and  daughter became their names.     

God the Father, for whatever reason landed on the name, Jesus, and WOW, Jesus certainly became His name too.  In Isaiah 9:6, there is a list of names that describe who He is.

 ...He will be called
Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God,
Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace.

Wonderful Counselor means His ear is open to hear our problems and He will guide us into all truth.  Yes, Jesus is a Wonderful Counselor.

Mighty God means He's all powerful, able to do above and beyond anything we could ask or think.  Yes, Jesus is a Mighty God.

Everlasting Father means He is with us always.  He's nothing like an earthly father.  An earthly father can be absent, cruel and utterly fail--not Jesus, He is our Everlasting Father.

Prince of Peace means that in the anguish of life's trials He can step into our situations and bring a peace that passes all human understanding.  Yes, Jesus is our Prince of Peace.

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace and just like that, He has become His name.
