When our children were born, we did not exactly bother to research what the names we were giving them meant. (Or, if we did at the time, my memory did not record it.) But yesterday, Kimmy came across a naming book in our library and decided to figure out what her full name originates from.
Kimberly Sarah turned out as “Royal Princess”. Sorta redundant, but it just proves that we weren’t concerned with meanings much, just with whether we liked the names and whether we could honor our late grand- and great-grandparents by naming the children so.
Becky then looked up Rebecca Evelyn as well.
She was surprisingly good-humored about it…
I had veto power on the kids’ Chinese names to make sure my wife didn’t same them silly when transliterated into English.
