Callie Ann Pierce
We are excited to announce our little girl's name! It took us much longer to decide on a name this time, but we finally did it! We had been keeping a running list of girl names that we liked, and just slowly eliminated them over the last few months. Callie was a name we liked all along, and the one we just kept going back to. But we wanted to really make sure before we made it "public." After still considering other names, and going through the entire baby name book, Callie was still our favorite!
We did not have our hearts set on choosing a "C" name - just because Caeden's is a "C" name. I think we actually only had two "C" names on our list. But this just ended up being our favorite, and we thought Caeden and Callie did sound really cute together!
The middle name is Ann is Ashley's middle name, and Ashley's mom's middle name. Again, I wasn't determined that we HAD to use "Ann" as a middle name, but since it went so well with "Callie," we thought it was perfect!
Callie literally means "beautiful or lovely." The biblical meaning is "Fortress."
"But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble." Psalm 59:16
Ann literally means "grace, favor". The biblical meaning is "Graceful." One place expanded saying it meant "He (God) has favored me." "Then that person can pray to God and find favor with him, they will see God’s face and shout for joy; he will restore them to full well-being." Job 33:26
Our sweet Callie,
We are looking so forward to meeting you! We know you will be beautiful and lovely in God's eyes, and pray that you truly depend on GOD as your forever fortress! We pray God's grace over you, and that you might pass that grace onto others. May God truly show you his favor, so you may see His face and shout for joy! We already love you so much and can't wait to hold you in our arms!!!
