    The way I read it was – his given name is Waylon, and they intend to call him Blackjack.
    Definitely an interesting choice.

    The way he wrot is, it seems like Blackjack is a nickname rather than a second middle name. Big Waylon would be so excited :) I love this couple! Congratulations!

    I wonder which day he was born: April 7 or 8, I assume. I’ve been waiting to see if it was a boy or a girl. Congrats.
