I posted a consultation for Jaclyn and her husband back in April, and Jaclyn’s let me know her baby boy has arrived and been given the fantastic name … Augustine Paul!
“I wanted to touch base to let you know that our little man has arrived! After much debate, we decided on the name Augustine Paul.
As we discussed in our consultation, we strongly considered dropping the final -e to aide in pronunciation (wanting him to be aw GUS ten, vs Aw gus TEEN). However, in the end we went with the more traditional spelling. We’ve already had a few mispronunciations, but I’m not sure whether the alternate spelling would have changed that or not. As for his middle name, Paul was already a front runner both for St. Paul and as a nod to my father and grandfather. So when he was born on the feast of Sts Peter and Paul, it seemed like a no brainer 🙂
Once again, we truly appreciated your input and feel like this name suits this little guy and our family perfectly. I’ve included a few pictures of Augustine and his proud siblings, who love their “Baby Gus” to pieces!“
I loooove this baby’s name!! Augustine/Gus is one of my favorites, and how amazing that he was born on the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul — Paul as a middle name was a no brainer indeed!
Congratulations to Jaclyn and her hubs and big sibs Lillian, Olivia, Henry, and Gemma, and happy birthday Baby Augustine!!
Augustine Paul and his big sibs! (Do I spy an Annunciation Designs swaddle?? 😍 )
