I'm sure some of you are curious as to why or where we came up with the name Phoebe Faith. There really isn't much behind it, it means bright faith, of which we both have. When it came to naming Phoebe there was no question, no battle no indecision. Her name was set for her before we even knew she existed. Do any of you remember the dream I often mention, the one where the day before we found out we were pregnant God came to me in that dream, told me I was pregnant, told me it was a girl and that her name was to be Phoebe Faith. Our daughter was named by God and I think that is the most special, most awesomest (making up my own word) way for you to be named. Not many people can say they were named by God. That is something very special she will always have.
I had never even thought of the name Phoebe, it was no where on my radar, though we were considering Faith for a middle name. We did know prior our next baby's nickname would be Bee and it fits so perfectly with her name. Stephen wasn't settled on it at first but I told him you can't go against God. You can't deny him this name. The dream was so clear, a promise from God and I trusted him and would honor that trust by naming her what he wanted her to be named. She's not named after anyone, no special ties to the meaning of her name, she was just named by God. That's all that there is too it, short blog because it was straight forward in naming her. We never even had to consider girl names, I just said that to make everyone think we still didn't know, though I still do love some of those names..maybe one day. But plain and simple, Phoebe was given her name by God when we still didn't even know she was apart of our life yet.
