We wanted a Biblical first name for our child. Our choices are:
Thomas Lobrecht Allen
Abigail Elizabeth Allen
We haven't decided if Abigail will be an Abigail or an Abby, but we are leaning towards Abby.
We chose Thomas because it is my dad's name. It is also the name of Jory's uncle who Jory thought so much of. We chose to call the baby Tommy as that is the name of a friend of ours who shows us daily how to glorify God in all situations.
Lobrecht is Papa's John's last name. Since he does not have any children bearing his last name Jory wanted to honor him this way.
Abigail is just a pretty Biblical name we both like. It means 'A Father's Joy' and I love that. Elizabeth was my grandmother's middle name. I very much wanted to honor her and my husband shot down the idea of naming a daughter Shirley...Elizabeth is also my middle name and my mom's name and Jory's grandmother's name, so it is wonderful on both sides. It means 'Consecrated to God' and I love that!
