Olivia Christine: For our first date, Paul and I went to a concert called Guitars Unplugged at BYU. I'm kind of sentimental and, since we were engaged and still at BYU a year after our first date, I wanted to go to Guitars Unplugged again. One of the guys that sang the previous year performed a song called Olivia. It was about his niece and how full of energy and bubbly she was while he was babysitting her. This song was a lullaby. I'm kind of a sucker for acoustic guitars, so I loved it! Paul bought me the CD, so we have it if anyone wants to hear our inspiration. Olivia's middle name, Christine, is my oldest sister's middle name (Megan Christine). After she passed away, I knew I wanted to use it as a middle name.
|Ewan (You-win) Jeffrey: He may have been the hardest to name. We had a name picked out from the beginning, but about three weeks before he was born, Paul decided that there was a better name out there for his little guy. So, the search for the perfect name to fit with the others began. We went through our baby-name book, websites, friend and family suggestions several times. We decided on a middle name, Jeffrey, Paul's dad's name. He is a wonderful person and we hope that Ewan looks towards him (and his other grandpa) as a good example of a husband and father. The first name was a little more difficult. I really liked Ian, but Paul didn't like it so much. He liked Owen, but I didn't like it so much. Ewan was on our list and a possibility. By the second day in the hospital and several calls from Medical Records, we settled on Ewan Jeffrey.|
