  1. Taylor Francis Lockaby-Gwinn…
    We came up with Taylor be sure it is his father’s middle name. Francis was my late mother’s middle name, may she rest in paradise. It’s also her birthday today. And Lockaby is part of his father’s biological family’s name, and Gwinn is his adopted foster care parent’s last name.

    His whole name is very meaningful ?

  2. Taylor is a middle name for our oldest son. It was my maiden name
