I think I started reading The Rhodes Log blog when the mama, Kate, posted her and her husband Jacob’s love story ages ago, and in a very short+intense time I read through all the rest of her posts, and have continued to check in — I have such a love for observing others living simple, natural lifestyles (probably because I’m really bad at it myself), and building things themselves, and the lifestyles of such as the Mennonites, and I get all of that on Kate’s blog.
They’re also really great namers, having named their first two:
So of course I was so excited when they announced they were expecting Baby Number Three! And thanks to the wonder of the internet, I can share with you all that the baby has arrived — a boy! — and he’s called … Roman John!
Roman John! I love it! Roman is one of those names I’ve had on my list for a long time, even though I just really don’t think it sounds great with our last name. And I know how some people think about alliteration and the somewhat-rhymey but I just have to say that I think Roman Rhodes is one of those hunky-and-handsome combos — like old Hollywood, like Charlie Chaplin and Greta Garbo. Or Robert Redford! And also like “roamin’ roads,” which totally fits the vibe I get from them. I love names with all sorts of layers! Nice job, Mom and Dad!
