The Name Game April 08, 2008

Welcome to the name game...

We have decided to KEEP the boys given names... Bisrat (pronounced Bisrot) and Yordanos (pronounced Yourdawnos). They were given these names by their birthparents, selected for a certain meaning. These names are precious to them and to us and will be the only part of their little lives that will stay the same- this will be the only part of Ethiopia (other than their twin) that they have on a daily basis. We realize that they are not common names or may be a bit difficult to pronounce or remember- you have all worked so hard to remember who was Eli and who was Sam. We will give them Elijah and Samuel as middle names. At some point down the road they can decided to go by Eli and Sam if they choose. For now we will call them Bis and Yordi (which is what we have called them from day 1). We love their names and what they represent.
