  1. His daddys name is Everett so we named our son that as well, to keep the name going.

  2. We named him Everett after my great uncle who was the kindest man I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. It’s also a very classic name that’s strong yet gentle I think. Also the name meaning has meaning to, brave as a boar. My family ( before I got married) crest/motto has a boar on it.
