  1. Her full name is Eve AnnMarie, and we kept up with family tradition to biblically name our children. After having seven nephews, we prayed HARD for a girl, and she was just born June 3, 2020. She is the first granddaughter in both sides of our family, and her first name means “life.” Her middle name is comprised of:
    Ann” after the middles names of me, my mother, and my MIL.
    Marie” after my late sister-in-law, who passed away suddenly Nov 2015 shortly after giving birth to her second boy. This was when my husband and I found out we were pregnant a second time after a miscarriage a couple years prior, and we felt that this would be a way to honor her love and memory.

  2. It’s the first name that God gave to a woman. So, my husband chose this name for our daughter.

  3. I love how it’s not a very common name but yet it’s easy to say, spell, and pronounce. It fits her as a baby and will grow well with her into adulthood I think!

    We chose Eve from a list of names we liked the sound of out of the baby name book after she was born. Eve was the last name standing after crossing all the others out for one reason or another! She just looked like an Eve I guess 🙂
