  1. We chose to name our fourth child Charley. We have enjoyed choosing our children’s names and have realized how important it is to give them a name that will represent them well, all of their life. My husbands grandfather is a stand up, Godly man that has been married for 61 years, and is leaving an incredible legacy along with his wife. Together they are one of the best examples for my husband and I to follow in many areas of our life. We were honored to name our baby after him and he was over the moon excited when we told him. Our baby is their 19th great grand child. We even allowed him to choose the middle name. He chose Preston. His wife, my husbands grandmother, her dads name was Samuel Preston. My husband was named Samuel after him. So they chose Preston to tie in my husband’s name as well. So over all, his name is super special and sentimental to our family. Charley Preston!
