A Name

Brody's Great Grandfather and Grandmother
 From our ancestors come our names, but from our virtues our honors.  ~Proverb

We have decided on a name for our second son.  I must say it's a lot easier naming a child as a baby than a soon to be four year old.  We looked at his face over and over as we tried to decide.  Then a video came and we got to see a tiny bit of his personality.  As I watched him, I knew we could not give up his first name.  It's the only thing he has that is his.  We also want him to have that heritage from India. So A________ is a keeper (still keeping that part confidential).

For his middle name we are giving him a Brice heritage.   Brody's middle name is after his great grandfather.  And A's middle name will be after his great grandmother- JAMES.  They are both wonderful people to be named after, and we are proud to carry on those names.

Since "A" is very long and difficult to pronounce, we are combining the first letter of each name to make up what we will call him.  Our son's name is AJ Brice.

I smile every time I say AJ.  This Mother's Day is the sweetest one yet!  I'm a proud mother of two precious boys.


  1. I'm sure it is a perfect fit! Love that will be keeping his Indian name too.


  2. What a great combination! Very honoring to his entire history, and a beautiful way to include him in his new family heritage.
