What’s In a Name?



Hubby and I have been set on baby names for a while now. Baby Harvey will be named after two of the most influential women in my life, my two grandmothers. They have both (in very different ways) molded me into who I am today. I hope that my daughter takes after these ladies who are truly Proverbs 31 beautiful women inside and out.

But a few days ago I started wondering what Baby Harvey’s name would actually mean, and what that would say about her character. Here is what I found:

Adeline Faye

Adeline (German origin) means Noble

Faye (English origin) means Confidence, Trust, or Belief

What a beautiful thought!!

Here is a bit more that was said on the site just for fun (we will see how accurate it turns out to be!)

“People with this name are excited by change, adventure, and excitement. They are dynamic, visionary and versatile, able to make constructive use of freedom. They fight being restricted by rules and conventions. They tend to be optimistic, energetic, intelligent, and to make friends easily. They may be changeable, restless, untidy, and rebellious.” (sheknows.com)


In related news: My visit to the ultrasound yesterday showed the baby measuring consistently a 1.5 weeks bigger in all areas of her body and therefore they needed to move my due date up to the end of November. So, I went from being 20 weeks pregnant to 21 weeks pregnant right there in that doctor’s office. Wow! This pregnancy is flying by!

  1. Grayson is measuring a little over a week bigger too. But my doctor doesn’t change due dates. They say they base it on baby’s age, not weight. But it could mean that he might arrive a little early. Though they said size doesn’t really determine how early babies come. I’m hoping to come a little early though…just so I don’t have to worry about being induced for being late. But that’s SO exciting that your due date is a little sooner! 🙂 I’m sure you’re dying to meet Addie like I’m dying to meet Grayson!
