What's in a name? Part 2

Hello friends and family!

I was going to wait for the pictures, but got some grief from family and friends because I was withholding information about our baby girl.

So what is her name?

OLIVIA Caroline Eunsoo (smile bead) Savard

It is of Latin origin, and its meaning is "olive tree". Coined by Shakespeare as the name of a much-wooed aristocrat in his play "Twelfth Night" (1599). He may have derived the name from the olive plant, or as a feminine form of Oliver. Biblical: the olive tree is a symbol of fruitfulness, beauty, and dignity. Today, "extending an olive branch" traditionally signifies an offer of peace.

We think it's perfect for her. Hopefully after parent interviews I can manage to scan those precious pictures to post. Sorry for the delay :0)
