The name game

Sarah posted about the names she and Daniel chose for their kiddos and the meanings and reasons. It was fun to read, so I'm copy-catting.

I'm sure we looked up the name meanings at some point, but I can't really remember what they were. For me, it was just important to choose names that were in the family. I didn't really consider anything else.

Anna Marie

It was pretty easy once we figured out that both Matthew and I had Grandmothers named Anna Marie. Here's my Grandma Anna. Isn't she lovely? I'm working on getting nice pictures of both Annas to hang in her room.

Rita Katherine (Katie)
Katie is named after my Mom

and my Great Grandma Katie, Grandma Anna's mother.

I really really love both of their names, and that I can tell them about the women who came before them and the things they cared about and did.

That IS fun! Love how you posted pictures of the namesakes, too. :)

Happy Valentine's Day!
