Birth announcement: Olivia Rose!

Can it be? THREE birth announcements in two days?? YES!!!

Jennie, whose consultation I posted last month, has given birth to her baby girl, and her beautiful name is … Olivia Rose!

Jennie writes,

Just wanted to let you know our newest addition arrived last Friday morning. Miss Olivia Rose has been a perfect addition to our family and we are all thrilled.

Her name (and we hope her disposition will follow suit) means peace and beauty. Thank you for your suggestion of the name Olivia. It wasn’t on our original list of names, but we both ultimately fell in love with it and we think it fits in perfectly with our other children’s names.

One of your readers noted the connection of the name Olivia with Our Lady of the Olives. I had never heard of that particular Marian devotion before, and I am so grateful she pointed it out. Once I read about it, I was sold on the name Olivia.

We chose Rose as her middle name in honor of Our Lady, the “mystical Rose.” … We pray our little Olivia Rose always stays close to Our Lady and and that in turn, she keeps her closer to her Son.

Thanks again for your help.”

How beautiful is the name Olivia Rose?? And packed with such meaning!! I’m so so so excited that Laura’s comment, connecting Olivia to Our Lady of Olives (who I’d not known of before), helped Jennie and her husband be “sold on the name Olivia”!! This blog would be nothing without all of you!!

Congratulations to Jennie and Matthew and big sibs Hannah, Abigail, and Lucas, and happy birthday Baby Olivia!!

  1. This made me so happy! I love creative ways to honor Our Lady!! I’ve been searching for a Catholic connection for Olivia too 🙂 I’m so happy there is one. Congrats to mom, dad, and big siblings!
