It seems to be one of the first things you start doing when you find out you’re pregnant. You know what I mean…the search for the right name.
Todd and I started talking about baby names fairly early on in my pregnancy. We came to an easy and fast agreement on a girl’s name…that should have been our first clue we would be having a boy! It took much longer to agree to a name for this little guy – but we have finally come to an agreement and I thought it would be fun to share LBH’s actual name with everyone!
Contrary to popular belief – LBH does not stand for anything but “Little Baby Hahn”…sorry!
We have chosen the name Beckett Graham for this squirmy little dude and here’s why –
The name Beckett jumped out at me almost immediately and became one of my top 2 choices. I absolutely loved the fact that it was unique but not super trendy and common. I love knowing he (probably) won’t be one of several Beckett’s in his class or go through life known as Beckett H. We also love the connection with Thomas Becket, a historical figure who stood up for his faith in the face of great opposition and personal danger.
Graham is the middle name of a longtime friend of Todd’s, who has stood with him in good times and bad. We wanted to honor him. Also, Billy Graham’s ministry has had a profound influence on Todd, so this is a way of honoring him as well.
So – there you have it. Beckett Graham Hahn. Can’t wait to meet this little guy with a great big name.
