  1. We chose the name Van because it represented his fathers ancestry. They were Dutch and the story goes that the “Van” was dropped at some point during immigrating. Also we wanted a boys name that we did not have an associations with re: other people with the same name we had known. I love that the name is simple yet strong. It’s unique and sort of mysterious. It is also an automobile driven by soccer moms and dads! I hope he’s resilient to any mini-van teasing since he’s likely to be short like mom and dad.
