What's in a name?

Well I think this is a really great story about the name we chose for our daughter. Leah is a name that I have always liked, but when Jon and Kate plus 8 first aired on TLC I really loved watching it. One of their sextuplets is named Leah, and I just always thougth she was a doll. Jon is part Korean, so all their children are part Korean. So when we decided to adopt, Leah was just my favorite name. I have the Gosselins book "Multiple Blessings", and was just skimming thru it this morning. I came accross the part where she explains her name choices. Here is what she says about picking the name Leah: "Somewhere in the naming process I remembered something from a visit at my grandparents' church. A couple had adopted a petite Asian baby girl whom they had named Leah. I smiled a I recalled her sweet and fragile "china doll" appearance. Envisioning a tiny Leah of my own, I happily wrote the third girl's name on our final list after Jon agreed." (Kate Gosselin, p.61)


  1. Thanks for sharing! I like the name Leah a lot - it's beautiful. Have a terrific week! (Still praying the form to your mailbox)

  2. I love Leah as a name too - and I'm glad I'm not the only one who was a Gosslin fan - I watched them religiously, wondering if my boy would like like one of theirs.
