Meaning of Imara Elizabeth

Wednesday, August 06, 2008

A couple of people have asked me how we came up with the name for the baby.  Easy, C picked it out of a name book (just like he did with K's name).  I only get to choose the middle names ;)

Imara is a Swahili girl's name meaning strong or resolute.
Elizabeth means God's oath.

I chose Elizabeth for two reasons, first it is my sister's middle name (unfortunately she doesn't like her first name and has already changed it to a variant so that wasn't an option).  Second, my sister was named after my grandmother, again Elizabeth being her middle name (Norah being her first and not a popular choice in the 70's as a name for my sister).

So now you know.
