  1. I named my son Fisher because one day I want him to be a Fisher of men just like Jesus taught us to be. His middle name is Simon after Simon Peter – the fisherman Jesus chose as a disciple.

  2. When we were pregnant with our second, we thought it would be fun to theme all of the boys names after hunting/outdoorsy names. We started with Fletcher, and then for our third child (Team green!) I had already chosen Fisher Paul (Paul after my grandpa) for the next boy. It’s unique, but not unheard of (though maybe it is uncommon as a first name…), and it also reminds me of the Bible verse about being a “fisher of men” … so whenever I say his name it’s almost a silent prayer of what I hope for his life ?.
