Welcome Liliana~What’s In a Name?

I am participating in Welcome Wednesday for the first time!

I am absolutely ecstatic to be with my oldest daughter and her family for the birth of my second grandchild; Liliana. I am in San Diego and staying at the their house, holding down the fort and loving on my 2 year old grandson, Philip.

The hospital staff in charge of birth certificates came by and asked the new baby’s name. There were  5 new baby girls named Lily that day! Lily, Lilliana, Lillian, Liliana.

We think it might be le nom du jour. Like Brittany, Jessica, Emily, Tyler; you can pretty much guess how old they are by their names!

When my mother named me Cindy, 50 years ago she thought she was being very original. There are 7 Cindy’s that I know of on my block today!

Does your name plug you into an era?

Here is Philip meeting his sister for the first time.lilypic1 lilypic10 Such a beautiful baby girl!lilypic11

Hi Cindy! What a beautiful baby girl!! God bless little Liliana, and congratulations to the entire family!.. Now as for names?.. The only "tinas" I can think of at the moment is Tina Turner, the character Tina Rickles from the t.v. show "The Courtship of Eddie's Father", and Tina Louise from Gilligan's Island!.. But perhaps Tina Fey has, most recently, brought the name back up the most popular baby names list, just a few notches at least, ya think?! ~tina (0;

Hi Cindy, I'm so happy you came by to visit me today! This is one beautiful baby for sure but she had no choice........look at her Mama, Daddy and her Granny. What a wonderful family. I wish I could reach in for a hug. I'm am expecting my fifth great grandchild...a girl in April! The baby's name is pretty. I never heard it before but know Lily is popular. That would have made my mother-in-law smile. Her name was Lily Pearl. Merry Christmas Cindy. Huggles, Mollye
