Well, I have had a few questions about Nevan's name so I thought I would just post about it.

I first heard the name after reading a story about a little Catholic family who found out they were having a baby boy with Trisomy 13 or 19...or whatever the number is and fell in love with their story as well as their little baby boy. He only lived for about an hour after birth but when the doctor lifted him up to the light to see if his heart was beating, his blood vessels had formed into the shape of a cross...

I then started to research the name and found that it is EXTREMELY uncommon. I love to have uncommon but not weird random names so I then found the meaning of the name which is "Holy, Holy little one, Little Saint, Holy little Saint and Follower of the Saint".

Josh and I prayed about the name and it just felt like it fit so we went ahead and named him Nevan.
