Baby Name Meanings

I think baby name meanings are fun. So, for those who have chosen your baby's name already, what does it mean? You can put the traditional meaning, and/or just what it conveys personally to you.

The name DH and I have chosen is Donovan Everett. The baby name book I have says it means dark warrior/strong as a boar. (Love it!) On a personal note, Donovan is a little nod to DH's irish heritage, and Everett is part of a naming tradition I'm starting with my kiddos - all of them will have middle names that start with the letter E (like me). DH also likes that with our last initial being L then baby's initals will spell DEL, which was the nickname of a dear friend of his who passed on a few years ago.

We're naming our baby Ivy Jane. The meaning of Ivy is obviously the ivy plant, but it symbolizes determination and preserverence, which is special to me since she comes after a miscarriage and TTCing for a year. Jane means "God is gracious," which is appropriate since she is a very prayed-for baby. love.gif

Our older daughter is Anna Kate. Anna means "grace" and Katherine/Kate means "pure," so I say her name means "pure grace," and she lives up to it for sure smile.gif She has always been a little lady, right from birth.

With our first child, Chase Aaron, we were 18 and didn't pay attention to name meanings. Chase means "hunter" and Aaron means "lightbearer" and is my husband's middle name.

Gavin means "white hawk," and he was platinum blonde until just recently, so very appropriate. Christopher means "Christ-bearer" and is my husband's first name.
