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.
