It's All In The Name

One of the most exciting times in any couple's life is when they find out that they are going to have a baby. There are many things that must be done to prepare for the birth of a new baby, but none is more important than choosing a name for the baby. A baby's name is chosen very carefully because the baby will live with that name for the rest of his or her life. When a couple is choosing a name for their baby, they will sometimes go to a bookstore or a library and get a book like, or go online and look up meanings and names. Many names have a special meaning I looked up a few popular names to see what, or go they mean.
Lilly – Purity
Karen and Kathryn – Pure One
Kendall – Valley of the Spring
Tucker – all heart, brave
Abigail – Father’s Joy
Jackson – Son of Jack
Breanna – noble/strong
Mason – stone maker
Heather- flowering plant
Brandy – burnt wine
Harley – farm by the rocks
Marie - Beloved
Charlotte - Free Woman
Margaret - Pearl
Debbie - Bee
When Mary and Joseph found out that they were going to have a baby, they didn't go to the bookstore and get a book to help them choose a name for Mary's baby. In fact, they didn't choose the baby's name at all! God chose it for them! God sent an angel to tell Mary what to name her baby. The angel said to Mary, "You will have a son, and you will call his name Jesus" You see, the name Jesus means "the Lord saves." Was it important for Mary's baby to be named Jesus? Yes it was, because the Bible tells us that there is no other name that can save us from our sin. (Acts 4:12)
