The Babies Name!

Did you see it in my post yesterday?

I think we have finally come to an agreement on what we will name this little guy!

Let me start with the fact that this is NO small feat!

My husband - whom I love to death- just kills me when it comes to names.

I had a list of 30 names all beginning with T where we could keep Tao as his nickname

and wait

His name he threw out - wait for it, wait for it,


REally? he is a dwarf - you can NOT name a child who you KNOW is a dwarf - Goliath!

More names, more arguing, more stress on my part - names are a huge thing for me.

I was sure we were supposed to use a Biblical name

Hmmm, Solomon - I liked Solomon all day long - until Mr wonderful came home from work LOL!

FInally, he threw out the name Griffin,

Hmmm, I thought - let me google it.

I like the nickname +
It sounds pretty good +
It fits with our other kids' names - I think +
 and then I found this

"The griffin's dual nature led it to be associated with Jesus Christ, God and man, king of heaven and earth. The eagle half of the griffin signified Christ's divinity and the lion half represented His humanity. Because no one could block the path of a griffin, this creature was especially associated with that passage in the Gospel which records Christ's marvelous passage through the crowd at Nazareth who were determined to throw Him off a cliff. [Luke 4:28-30] During the Middle Ages, griffins were symbols of Christ's resurrection. The strength of the lion and the wisdom of the eagle combined in the griffin symbolized the strength and wisdom of God."


and the nickname!

Ugh as for a middle name - I'm thinking maybe we will just stick with Griffen ZiTao and skip the divorce LOL!


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the name!

    With our two Chinese* blessings we stuck with the "nickname" given to our boy through Love Without Boundaries...His sponsor had named him Dalton and we loved it. With our daughter my husband picked the name and refused to Analina it is...but with the one we're expecting we're going with my name pick if its a girl (at least he'd better!)

    Really like the name and the meaning! So much fun! Where are ya'll in the process now? We're just waiting on the TA! Praying for any day now!

  2. love the name, love his sweet face and love those little legs with the french fries on them!!! I'm super jealous as I would love to adopt again but ....hubby is a NO! I want another child with dwarfism SOOOOO bad!! Maybe God will change his heart.

    happy for you guys!

  3. LOVE Griffen....Griffin Taomega sounds great ;)
    So excited for you.
    We LOVE Kunming....for many reasons!
    "our" little one is there...but we aren't sure God is saying YES at this moment.
    But when her papers are ready I'm going to ask your help in advocating for her!!!
