  1. My husband thought of it! We are both very picky with boy names. We like older names but didn’t want anything too trendy. Sidney is the name of a WWII hero we learned about in the Ken Burns documentary about the war in the Pacific during WWII. Sidney Phillips was one of the main heros discussed. When the war was over he moved back to the states and became a successful doctor! We named our baby Sidney Phillip after him in hopes that he grows up as brave and resilient as him!

  2. Sidney is named after his great grandpa Sidney.
