When we first found out we were expecting a sweet baby, we immediately started racking our brains for our favorite names. We knew we wanted something timeless and meaningful.
As it turns out, naming a person for their whole life feels like a lot of pressure! But without further adieu, our baby girl's name will be....
We're going to call her 'Jaqs' (pronounced like Jacks) for short rather than the more traditional, Jackie. We wanted her name to be unique but still classic. Her Grammie and I have already started referring to her as Jaqsy and Jaqsy-girl though, so I'm sure she'll have plenty of nicknames :)
And her middle name is after my paternal grandmother...
I love both of these women so much, and we wanted to honor them in this way.
I think it will be special for both of them to know that their great-granddaughter is named after them, and it is definitely sentimental to us!
Jacqueline means "may God protect." I love that. My prayer for her is that God will always protect her and that she will always look to Him for guidance and direction in her life.
Kate means "pure." Obviously she will be born without flaw, and it is my prayer that she remain pure and true to herself and our Lord throughout her life.
