Name Tags

Thanks to Nanay Belen this tag, I like this tag because I also want to share with you friends my reasons for choosing my kids’ names

—START TAG—

OUR KID’S NAMES: List all of your kids’ names, or even just one. It's up to you. Write down the story or the reason why you chose it. If you’re expecting or planning to have more kids and already have a name for them …. list them down too.

My first princess’ (we call our daughters princess) name is JULIANNE RUTH. She was born months after my father died, his name was Julian which means Youthful and since I’m the favorite and look alike child of my father we’re happy to name our first child after my father so the sound of my father’s name will always ring around the house. Her second name Ruth which means A Companion, Friendshipwas derived from the Old Testament character Ruth because I admire the strong character of this woman who was a loyal daughter-in-law of Naomi. We believe that the characters of the person you named after will reflect in your kid somehow. Now Ruth has a very strong character, not easily intimidated and can decide on her own.

My second princess’ name is GENESIS ANNE. Noticed that they both have Anne in their names – Anne which means Gracious. Genesis means the Beginning and knows why we used it? After Ruth’s delivery we encountered little hardships because we spent big amount when I was suddenly subjected to caesarean delivery. When I found that I was pregnant with my second child we were blessed with many spiritual and financial blessings as the oldies call it ‘lucky’. We took it not as a lucky thing but rather a ‘beginning of grace and blessing’. She grew up as the nicest kid in my family, always charming and nice.

My third child and the only prince is JOSHUA ISAAC , the youngest and the most active in all levels, in speech and in action. He’s the promised son just like Isaac to Abraham, because we didn’t know that we’re going to have a son. Our close friend in the church dreamed about me having a baby boy in my lap months before I got pregnant. We were glad when we heard it and believe that God will do his promise of giving us a son. Isaac also means ‘He Will Laugh’. His first name Joshua which means ‘Jesus Saves’ was a very strong character in the bible, the right hand of Moses and the mighty warrior who took over his leadership when he was taken by God. He’s the blessed leader in which God made the SUN STAND STILL when they fought with the big army. This brave soldier was blessed with many miracles in the field of fighting for the land of the chosen people of God. Now Josh grew up as a kid who always laughs and always tells us that he wants to be a soldier, we tell him that he’ll be a soldier of God just like Joshua, a modern day Joshua who will fight life with the words of God

I am passing this tag to Cecile, Geng, JennyR, Yen and Emzkie.
