What's In A Name?

Haven Jane Friske!  That's her name!!!  I think we officially decided on our "babymoon" trip but I didn't want to say anything until we found out if it was a girl!  So what's in a name?

Haven is my grandmother's maiden name.  I love you Gran!  I absolutely LOVE it.  I love the special significance it has, I love how it sounds with Friske, I love everything about it!  It's perfect!  And Jane is my middle name so we are passing that down as well.  If she had been a boy, we were going to pass down Russell's middle name (William) as the middle name, so we decided to follow suit in naming our baby girl. And I love how it sounds with Haven!  I have already started buying "H" things!  So fun!  We can't wait until sweet Haven Jane Friske arrives in June!
