  1. Anders is a family name on my husbands side. It’s a multi generation name. I wasn’t sold on it when he first brought it up at the beginning of my pregnancy. It started to slowly grow on me though! A couple days before he was born my husband got an email from family search (a family history website) that said “learn about your 6th great grandfather Anders”. I felt like that was a sign–it fits his little face and personality so well. We love our Anders boy!

  2. Scandinavian means strong and manly bro of peter apostle of christ
