I love her name. <3
I have 3, and each of their names have been a challenge.
My first is Christopher Judah, who is called Judah. Judah has a lot of biblical symbolism as the line Jesus came from, it means 'praised' and the Lion of Judah symbol has always been beautiful to me in a Narnia kindof way. As my pregnancy progressed I realized that the tribe of Judah starting with Judah himself was always on a journey to something greater-but if often looked super messy and un-great at the time, which is exactly how God has worked in my life.
Christopher has the great meaning of Christ bearer, but it's mostly just my husbands name.
Zachary Justice, goes by Justice-his first name is really significant in any way. Justice is a shout out to the perfect Justice of Christ and a recognition that His Justice is a Justice of pure, unhindered love, not of spite and contempt as I was taught growing up.
Piper Jubilee goes by both first and middle names. (Hubby calls her Piper, I call her Jubilee)
Her name means a proclamation of triumph or jubilee. The last 6 months of her pregnancy was the most emotionally devastating time in my life, and I couldn't see that there would ever be an end when she was born. It took us days to decide on her name, and it was really hard emotionally due to several things. We wanted to name her something we believed God would do even though we couldn't see it at the time. Jubilee is also the year of rest in scripture, and over the last 15 months or so I have been in such a desperate need for rest. (Baby is 8 months old)
So now we have 3 Ju names, and I think we are done because we created a very unintentional pattern there.
