What’s in a name?

When I found out I was pregnant (a year and a half ago!); I was swirling around with ideas…..what would we call our little one?

We scoured the internet for names, we knew we wanted something semi-Italian, especially if we were having a boy – he definitely needed a strong Italian name.

After many months, and many arguments (“No we are NOT naming our son Vincenzo”) – we finally settled on Luca for a boy, and Sophia for a girl.

For as long as I can remember, I always knew if I had a girl I would name her Sophia Bella. I loved the way it sounded together, it was perfect and classy. On February 17th, 2010 we found out we were having a girl, much to my surprise (and excitement as well)! Sophia it was!! After we wiped away the tears, and got in the car to drive home – the H turned to me and said “I’d really like her middle name to be Josephine, after my mom”. After speaking to the H’s sister (and my bff) to make sure she was ok with it – which she happily was!

Deal. It was done, I loved it and I thought what better way to honor the most amazing woman, I've ever had the pleasure of knowing, than to name our daughter after her.

The H kept saying to me “If you really want Bella its ok, I wont be upset” – how could I change my mind at that point? It was perfect. And now that she’s here, I couldn’t even imagine it any other way.

Sophia Josephine………… Think it suits her just swell.
