Naming Our Son

So, you may find the name for our Babe to be an interesting choice — one I about guarantee you've never heard. Maybe because technically it isn't a name you would ever find in a baby name book. Husband and I chose our son's name based on meaning. Together Husband and I have discussed, so many times, how we want our son's name to be something to live up to. Our son's name is Valor.

Valor Emerson

val•or [val-er]
boldness or determination in facing great danger, especially in battle; heroic courage; bravery: a metal for valor.

intrepidity, spirit, courage

Our call to war, to love the captive soul,
But to rage against the captor;
And with the sword that makes the wounded whole
And will fight with faith and valor.
When faced with trials on every side,
We know the outcome is secure,
And Christ will have the prize for which He died—
An inheritance of nations.
Lyrics from O Church Arise

Dear Valor,
I love saying your name and praying that you are full of boldness, bravery and courage! Life definitely throws curve balls, but our hope for you, is that you're a boy that is true to his name. But most of all, we want you to know Christ as your Heavenly Father and believe that He is the source of your strength. Your Daddy and I cannot wait to meet you and get to know your unique personality. We're counting down the days Little One.
