Birth announcement: Philip Charles!

I did a private consultation for Courtney and her husband a few months ago, and I’m excited to share their baby news with you! They had a little boy and gave him the fantastic name … Philip Charles!

Courtney writes,

We really loved doing the name consultation with you — it was fun to have another person’s perspective on names and nicknames we had been thinking of. Thanks for all the great suggestions

We went into the hospital with Elizabeth Helena as our girl name. We had considered Helen but loved your suggestion of Helena for the extra “sparkle”  And Philip Charles as our boy name. We felt like Philip is easier to keep as the call name and it fits with the other boys names

We’re thrilled to introduce: Philip Charles. His name Saints are St. Philip Neri, Pope St. John Paul the Great, and St. Charles of Austria

All you Holy men and women, pray for us!

I absolutely love the names Philip and Charles, and all those patron saints!! Three of my favorites!! So wonderful!!

Congratulations to Courtney and her husband and big siblings George, Margaret, Walter, Oscar, and Matilda, and happy birthday Baby Philip!!
