On April 4, 2015 @ 9:50pm, weighing 7lbs 3oz and 19 inches long, we welcomed our daughter! We went into labour with 2 girl names and 2 boy names as we didn’t know what we were having. It was important for us to choose names that had meaning – mainly names with family significance. We also like timeless/classic names that you could picture on a small child, a teenager, and an adult holding a position like Judge.
I personally don’t like that a lot of son’s are named after their father or grandfathers but daughters are rarely named after their mother or grandmothers. When it came to picking a girl’s name, we wondered how we could honour both of our mother’s with her name. After much thought, we were able to creatively name her after her grandmothers. We like that she’s the only one in the family with her name and yet, it was inspired by family significance. We’re glad that the inspiration behind her name came from our mothers. For if it weren’t for their influence we wouldn’t be the people we are today.
Now on to you: do you have a “behind the name” story for your child? Would love to hear it!
