Birth announcement: Agnes Therese Marie!

I’ll be off the blog from now until New Year’s, when I’ll post my annual Year In Review post — I hope you all have a very merry and blessed Christmas!!

Monica and I have had many namey conversations over the years, including a consultation I did for her fourth baby and birth announcements I posted for that baby and two more (here and here)! She just emailed me to let me know she’s welcomed another baby, with another amazing name — a little girl named … Agnes Therese Marie!

Monica writes,

I thought I’d share an update with you. We welcomed another little girl to our crew three weeks ago … Agnes Therese Marie! We didn’t know the gender prior to her arrival and while we were going back and forth on boy names we had been set on Agnes for a girl from the start of the pregnancy. I love her name and feel like it’s a great fit with her siblings

Cora was confirmed this summer and chose St Therese as her patron. We decided to ask her to be Agnes’s godmother, so it is extra special that Agnes and her share Therese as part of their namesakes.”

What a beautiful name for this baby girl!! And I love those special connections Cora will always share with her baby sister — being both her godmother and sharer in the patronage of such a powerful Saint. Such a blessing for both of them!!

Congratulations to Monica and her husband and big siblings Cora, Levi (with Jesus), Regina, Fulton, Edmund, and Hildegard, and happy birthday Baby Agnes!!

  1. I also have a little Agnes!! I read through one of the previous consultations and I must also add that I, too, have a deep love for the name Gertrude. I’ve never met anyone else who shares this! We have similar naming styles! 😊 Congratulations to this family and may God bless His new little lamb
