I spent hours researching baby names, both for boys and for girls. Ariel and I easily agreed on the girl names but we can only agree on one boy name (which I really, really love). I guess we were really meant to have girls.

I personally wanted names that will remind us of God’s grace and faithfulness. I want our kids to grow up knowing that they are precious gifts from God, and that their names are special reminders of how special they are. So I scoured the internet looking for names that both sound good, and have special meanings. To add to the challenge, Ariel and I both wanted our kids’ names to start with the letter A, because you know, Ariel and Alby.

Without further ado, introducing our babies’ names.

Names were brushpainted and digitized by yours truly. 

Origin and meaning were typed using my handwriting that was digitized into fonts.

    Oooh! Twin girls! How exciting! Love their names. It is always very exciting to think of names for the children. My Alessandra Gianina is nicknamed Alyssa and Cerise’s full name is Cecilia Amarise. :-)

      Thanks Mia. Your girls are so big na! And I’m happy to see Cerise’s progress. Been following your posts about them since they were little. Any tips in raising girls?
