6 Comments

  1. My husband actually named my son, but I live the name because it’s a classic name. I also love that it’s a name in the bible, like my other son Isaiah.

  2. We choose the name Timothy because we decided to name our last baby boy we are having after my husband. My husbands name is Timothy.

  3. It’s his grandfathers name.

  4. My baby is named Timothy for two reasons. He’s named after Timothy in the Bible. I just think the name is classic and will never go out of style. His middle name is James, so he has many possibilities for nicknames, but he can also just feel comfortable going by his first name.

  5. It’s my fathers name and I love it!

  6. We wanted a name representative of being a strong spiritual leader. We named him after the Bible Character Timothy. We nicknamed him Timo because he ended up being born on Australia Day!
