  1. Before I was ever pregnant I was driving onto our street and a “name” (an arrangement of sounds really) that I’d never heard popped into my head. I thought I made it up, “Mera,” which was a good combination of several things I liked (the word merit, the names Sarah and Meredith, A-meri-ca, and it was short and uncommon). Once I looked it up I discovered that spelled Meira it became a Hebrew name (like mine) and means LIGHT or one who illuminates. I thought that was just beautiful since Jesus is the Light of the World and I couldn’t hope any more from her life, but that she would shine His joy. My husband also liked it and helped me stick to it even when others seemed confused by it. Her nursery has a wall of scripture about “light” that I painted for her. Her full name is Meira Faith (Faith for obvious reasons, but also because it is one of her Daddy’s spiritual gifts). And we’re in good company with your little one! 😉
