Birth announcement: Tiber Augustine!

I posted such a fun consultation for Ali and her husband back in February, and Ali’s let me know her little guy has arrived and been given the fantastic name … Tiber Augustine!

If you remember, Ali had said, ““We are charismatic Catholics so if you’re feeling creative and want to put a crazier name in the mix, that would be awesome,” and Tiber was one of my ideas — so fun that it hit the right note for them!

Congratulations to Ali and her hubs and big brothers Max and Zack, and happy birthday Baby Tiber!!

  1. I love that name so much! My husband has repeatedly shot down Tiber or Roman, even though we lived there for a year. I may just have to spring for baby #6 one day to get another shot at it 🙂

  2. […] Boy (1) Tiber Okay, moving on to boy ideas. So I totally latched onto the fact that Trish said she and her husband like last-names-as-first-names for boys, and I always include place names in that category (especially since so many last names started as place names, and so many saintly place names have a last name feel, like St. Catherine of Siena, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, etc.). And any time I know one of the parents is a convert, I immediately think of Tiber! Tiber is for the Tiber River in Rome, and many of you know that when someone converts to Catholicism a fun thing to say is that they “crossed the Tiber.” (There are even t-shirts that say “Tiber Swim Team” with the year the person entered the Church, like these.) Anyway, two of my readers have used Tiber for their boys and I love it! I think it’s so cool and so meaningful, but in kind of a stealthy way! Check them out here and here. […]
