The naming process for me is a deeply spiritual experience. Zak, Eliot and Eliannah have special stories as to why their name was picked and each name has a special meaning. I can tell you exactly what book of the Bible I was studying when I was pregnant as their names are based on something I was learning from that specific passage.
But.. it's not all about me, Phillip still has a say. He likes "normal" names that don't necessarily mean anything special but fly under the radar of bizarre. I like names that have a special meaning but in some cases are off the beaten track so to speak. Here is a list of our most recent "rejects"
1. Zandaleigh: (no meaning)
2. Rachael : ewe
3. Semeicha:happy, joyfull
5. Ushriya:blessed by Jehovah
6. Ahuviya: loved by God
7. Ranen: to sing, to be joyful
8. Rebeccah: to tie
9. Nadim: drinking partner
10. Girard: strength of the spear
Can you guess which pick are mine?
