A while back my husband attempted suicide. It was a long road to healing for him and our marriage, now we’re thinking about having a second child.
I’d like the child to have a name that reflects what happened. If it’s a girl we decided on grace but we’re stuck on the boy name. Any suggestions for boy names meaning survivor, strong, brave, miracle, blessing etc.
middle name will be Michael as it’s a family name. Last name starts with W

I like Liam which means strong/protector or you could maybe use Benedict or Bennett both mean blessed?
That's all I can think of off the top of my head as I've always found boy's names hard!
