I have a two years old son and his name is Yeso Izech. When my husband and I are looking for a name to our baby, it happened that we passed by into a bookshop that sells used book. When I was searching for a book in their shelves i saw a large book with the title Babies Names so i scan the pages until i found the name that i was looking for, for my baby's name. Yeso - is a Hebrew word meaning saviour. Letter Y instead of letter J because in Hebrew they don't have letter J. The second name Izech is supposed to be Isaac but then my husband said that we should change the spelling based on the sound of the word Isaac, this is the story my son's name. What about your child's name?

i don't have a child yet at the moment... so i don't have any story to tell to you yet... but when i have a child in the future, i want my child's name to be based from the Bible and have religious meaning... in fact, i and my hubby already prepare a name for our babies... both for boys or girls... that is really funny because i'm not even pregnant yet... your child's name is very beautiful and unique... take care and have a nice day...

i have three kids. my eldest daughter is named ysabelle louiseanne, so named because during those times we (me and my husband) are struggling, fighting to survive... when i had her, she was like a gift from above. her name means precious gift and fighter... and fighter, she really is... she always have a counterattack to everything... lol my second child is named zechariah daniel... it wasn't supposed to be his name, we had another name for him, but when i gave birth to him, we changed it to that, dont know why at that time... while growing up, and when he was able to speak, he says something unexpectedly and would happen in other days... zechariah and daniel are prophets in the bible. my third son and youngest and my last... is named kevin kichiro, i was suppose to go to japan before i give birth to him to seek medical help for my hearing problem but it didnt pushed through because of some documents problems... that's why he has a japanese name. kevin means gentle and kichiro means lucky child. he sure is a lucky child. i always bring him wherever i go, because i dont have a babysitter and two christmases ago, i won in all the christmas parties we attended, i was into real estate then so there were many parties to attend to from different developers... from appliances, to gift baskets, to massager... and evertyime my number and name are called, people were like, her again?

Hi Ronina, Welcome to mylot. Well, I had a name for my daughter when I were pragnent. However, The first eye I layed on her, I knew her name was already set. I wanted and called her during the pragnecy, christina, however, her name was set to Anna, and I could not change it...somehow it was already planned from above. My granfather was Johan, and when I got my son, I did not wanted another name than Johan, so his name is Johan...however when I say him after birth I knew that was correct.... I can not explain why this is...however, both of these names are family names. And for some reason someone or somewhat wanted my kids to have those names...I am Ok with it and so are the kids...

My son’s name is Pushkar which means lotus. It is also the name of a very holy place in India. We chose this name for him coz its quite uncommon and also all the males in my in-law’s family have names starting with P.

Your son has a nice name. I'm not yet married and so i dont have a baby but when my sister had two babies im the one who gave them names. The elder son, i named him Brent Gabriel because when i first read the name in a Novel i liked it. Gabriel is a biblical name after the Angel Gabriel and means god is my might. The second son is Brix Shem. I just love to hear the word Brix and Shem is the eldest son of Noah which means good looking and warm-hearted.

I think my name means wary, or cautious, or something like that. Makes sense to me, since I'm probably the most cautious person I know. LOL My husband and I aren't planning on having kids.
