What's In A Name?

Aaron and I are not quite settled on a middle name for Natalie. Before her spina bifida diagnosis we were pretty sure what we wanted, but now we're not so sure. I have been searching around to find names that mean strength, strong, victorious, etc. but have not really found anything that we really like. Today I was thinking about women from the bible. There are many stories of women who overcame adversity or had great faith and trust in God. I'm sure there are also some great women in history that would provide a nice strong name.

Anyone want to help me brainstorm names? Go ahead and throw out ideas of some strong names that go well with Natalie. I'd love to hear them!


  1. Elizabeth - Consecrated To God

    Grace - Grace Of God

    Sarai - My Princess

    Rachel - Innocent Lamb

    I began praying for Natalie and her parents as soon as I found out she was on the way. I marvel at how the Lord is leading you to the right doctors and hospital. Thank you for sharing your joys and sorrows with us as you prepare for motherhood. Bless you all! Cindy Jones

  2. Elise, Alise, Elisa, Elizabeth -- All mean God's promise. I think it suits Natalie well. :-)
