What's In Her Name?

As you may all very well know, we named our firstborn Samantha Ysabelle.

The Samantha is of English origin and is a combination of two names: from the Hebrew name Samuel, which means "God has heard" and also the Greek word -"antha" which means "flower". We consider our daughter a prayer heard and answered thus, Samantha.

The second name Ysabelle is of French origin and is a variant of the Hebrew name Elizabeth and means "God's promise". We believe in our hearts that our daughter will grow up to be a good daughter and Christian and that she will always have us as her guide. And because she is God's gift to us, we as parents are committed to be her role models. Just as God will protect her from all harm and evil, so will we protect her from all forms of harm and evil too.

How about you Mommy? What's in your child's name? Share it with us at Mommy Moments!
