What’s in a Name?
July 22, 2010 § Leave a comment
The word “name,” in it’s adjective form, is defined as “a word or a combination of words by which a person, place, or thing, a body or class, or any object of thought is designated, called, or known.” Simple enough….until you’re suddenly the one responsible for giving it. The name a parent chooses for their child will be a lifelong factor in that child’s story — a first impression, an identity, or potentially a source of material for playground malice. Yikes….Suddenly 9 months doesn’t seem that long, does it? Whatever the name, and whatever the reason for selecting it, new parents are extremely proud of their choice — as they should be. This excitement inspired my “alphabet block style” series….which I offer to clients as a part of their session package. It’s my little way of not only taking note of a sweet newborn face, but also of the distinction that has been lovingly chosen for them.
