What's in a Name

Taylor and I have spent quite some time pondering names, but once we found out we were having a boy the naming process almost seemed to solve itself. None of the names we had originally chosen seemed to fit anymore. Taylor's first name is Paul, so once we knew it was a boy we both began to fill strongly about having Paul in his name. Not only is Paul Taylor's name, but it has been in his family for generations.

The middle name came almost as easily as the first. We wanted to use a family name and we both agreed that Samuel would be the perfect choice. My Grandfather (Samuel White Forrer), holds a special place in both of our hearts and felt it would be the perfect tribute. Samuel also ties into Taylor's side of the family with his Great-Grandfather on his Mother's side.

It's amazing how such confusion with what to name our child was so quickly calmed once we knew we would be parents to a baby boy!

Meet Paul Samuel Phillips who we will call Sam :)
