Birth announcement: Taavi Ross!

I posted a consultation for Shannon, from the blog We, A Great Parade, and her husband back in April, and she’s let me know her baby has arrived, a handsome little boy with the handsomely eye-catching name … Taavi Ross!

Shannon writes,

Hi Kate! Wanted to let you know that we welcomed our son on May 20th! (We barely missed a shared birthday on the 19th!) 9 lb 6 oz and 21 inches long. It was a peaceful and quick labor, and we are so thankful for his little presence in our family.

His name is Taavi Ross Evans!

Taavi (pronounced tah-vee) is a derivative of David and means “beloved”. It was a name we found after you and I did the consultation, so not one I had mentioned to you. My husband and I love the sound, the meaning, and the nod to both the poet-king and the bishop Saint who is also the patron of poets! Ross is a family name on my husband’s side.

Big brothers Alyosha and Moses are adorably proud.

Thanks for all your and your readers’ help brainstorming! It was such a fun and helpful experience!

I love all the meaning behind this little guy’s name! And I’m always so intrigued by Finnish names, it is SO cool to see a family use one.

Congratulations to the whole family, and happy birthday Baby Taavi!!
