What's in a name...Take 2

So, we named our second child 
Keating Elijah Beard
We get two responses. 
1. How do you spell that? KEATING
2. Is that a family name like Foster?

Why yes, yes it is. 
Keating is named after Mary Keating. 
Mary Keating was Fosters Grandpa McGoldrick's great grandma.
She would have been Keating and Foster's great, great, great, great grandma.
We found out the day that Keating was born that Mary's Daughter was born on Sept 20th too...and she would have been 116!

So, that is the story of why we named him Keating.

Elijah means "the Lord is my God" and since we did a family name and then a Bible name with a meaning that we love for Foster, we decided to repeat the pattern for baby number 2.

and thats the way it is.

Thanks for stoping by.
