WHY WE NAMED HER ADELAIDE ESME........

Adelaide.......
From the Germanic name Adalheidis which was composed of the elements adal "noble" and heid "kind, sort, type"

--there are a few different places in the Bible (proverbs 31; book of Ruth) that speak of women of "noble" character. Our prayer and hope for our daughter is that she will grow into a woman of noble godly character.

Esme.......
Means "esteemed" or "loved" in Old French

--Esme has the same meaning as Amy...esteemed, loved or beloved. We thought that was cool.


So.....there you have it!!
