How do you know what to name a baby without ever meeting them? Well, if you are anything like me, you make lists, you cross off names, re-write them, and then cross them off again. Next, you text the hubster name after name after name every night until he finally agrees upon one that you like too. And, then you start using it when referring to the baby in order to feel it out, hear how it rolls off the tip of your tongue, and make sure it is THE NAME!
And, of course since all of our littles names are unique and packed full of meaning this was a daunting task finding the perfect name for our boy! So, why Holden Enzo you ask?
Well, considering that we were having a BOY, it was important to us to give him a uncommon name, automotive in nature, that sounded strong. After a ton of research, lists full of lots of names, and a bunch of discussing with the hubster we finally agreed upon Holden Enzo.
Holden is an automotive manufacturer in Australia, as well as the name of the main character in J. D. Salinger's novel "The Catcher in the Rye."
Enzo is the first name of the founder for Ferrari, and seeing how Holden was called "Ferrari Corvette" throughout my entire pregnancy, it was only fitting that his middle name be Enzo.
Amazingly so, the minute the doctor placed my sweet boy on my chest, and I said his name out loud to him for the first time, I knew that it was perfectly fitting for our little man!
