It was a little more complicated than it seems to, since we wanted to find a name that was meaningful too. My sister-in-law had suggested Alexander. Since we got married in the town of Alexandria in St. Alexander's cathedral, we thought it was perfect, however, not for the first name. We searched on the internet, in books everywhere and discounted names like Kermit, Doctor, Lucifer.... we kept coming back to Ethan. And then, while watching a French T.V. program about babies, I heard the name Nathan. I didn't know this name existed in French, and then we thought hey why not? Once we found out that it meant "gift from God" and he would be born in December, it was confirmed. Our little Christmas gift from God...and therefore we have officially chosen the baby's name!
It is such a relief to not have to keep calling him baby, or him, but now we can actually start calling him by his name! We are so excited... and now all that is left is to meet little Nathan in just 11 short weeks!
