So I was speaking with a close friend the other day about names and what she would like to name her unborn child. She asked me how I came up with Zoë’s name and what drew us to naming our daughter that. I told her the honest truth…we thought it was cute! No deep meaning or explanation. Julian liked the name Chloe and I wasn’t feeling it, but I did liked Zoe. He confirmed it, added the diacritic (two dots) above the ‘e’, and whaaa-laaa, we had a name! However, we would later find out that Zoe is mentioned throughout the Bible with a translation meaning “ Eternal Life” and that to me was SUPER cool. I will delve deeper into why in a later post. This conversation made me think… what factors did you all take into account when you were thinking of names for your children? Any deep meaning? Did you use a name generator? Did you use the “Top 100 names of (insert year)” list? Did you always know what you wanted to name your child?
