El Nombre

Ok, soooo it took a while for us to pick this time around but the name is

Elliot Hayden Jennings

We obviously love the old-fashioned literary names, huh? First Henry James now a Mr. Elliot...

Elliot means The Lord is my God according to the name website we used for research. With Henry, we didn't really consider name meaning too much but he has certainly lived into his name meaning..."king of the house." We also are inspired by Jim Elliot & I love Elisabeth Elliot's writings. Passion and Purity was one of my favorite books in high school. Hayden means "hedged valley" which we've totally taken and hope to mean that he'll be hedged in by God's love.

I actually really like the name Hayden alone but, not knowing how many kids we'll have, it feels like we're setting ourselves up to do all H names then and that could be challenging.

Remember, no negative comments on the name, please. It's a done deal. Unless the baby comes out looking like a Sam or Billy or something. Then, we'll reassess.

Oh- I really love it. Elliot is one of my favorite names! Oliver Elliot was one of our choices for Fraz. Elliot is my brother's middle name. Also makes me think of E.T. And that's an awesome movie. Can't wait to see this little guy!! Henry and Elliot. Classy, you guys, truly classy. :)

OMG! I canNOT believe you are naming your baby Elliot with only 1 t at the end of it. JK....I love the name (with only 1 t). I can hear you now calling your boys, "Henry! Elliot! Stop trying to ride Powers!"
