And her name is...

Obviously, Ryan and I have had a lot of time to talk about names for Baby Miller. We have a couple boy names and a couple girl names that we both really like. But once we got matched and met Q, the names we had in mind didn't seem to fit. We realized that we wanted the name to really mean something special, not just sound nice. So I spent some time looking up names and meanings, and showed my new list to Ryan to see if anything stood out to him. One did. Hands down, no questions asked. A name that is meaningful, feminine and unique. We fell in love with it. 

The first name means "my God has answered me". I mean, could it be any more fitting??? This little one is the answer to our prayers, and the prayers of so many others who have come alongside us. 

The middle name is characteristic of our whole journey of waiting. But also carries weight as the reassurance that I have in the Lord that He loves me and is using all things for my good and His glory.

Ready? Her name is Elliana Hope Miller. :)


Well...it could be Elianna, Eliana, or Elliana. lol. We're currently debating our spelling options so that we pick the one that makes the most sense. It's pronounced eh-lee-au-nuh. Feel free to give feedback on which spelling you like best! :)

  3. Adorable name. I personally feel like Eliana makes me pronounce it the way you want it pronounced. But all the ways are cute for spelling.
