Baby L’s Name

“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches,
and loving favor rather than silver and gold. “
Proverbs 22:1
I promised you the big name reveal was around the corner and here it is:
Henry Patton L.

Our son will have a strong, traditional, manly name. Henry is a German name that means “Ruler of the home”…and that I am sure he will be! Henry also happened to be the middle name of my fraternal grandfather and my maternal great-grandfather. Patton is the middle name of Randall’s maternal grandfather and he goes by this name. He is the only one still living of our son’s namesake and he teared up when we told him our son would have his Great-Grandaddy’s middle name.
Naming a child is a tough task and I am so pleased we have both agreed on such a precious name for our little one. I can’t wait to meet our little Henry and call him by name!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.

  1. I'm a super big fan of the name Henry! Anytime I meet a little Henry I get all excited because I like the name so much. A family name is important. We gave both of our children family names in a round about way. Hannah's middle name is Lorrel – a combination of LORRaine and EthEL, Travis's grandmothers. Janson is named for his grandmothers – both Janets – and his middle name is his father's first. It's a lovely legacy to pass on.
