A brother for Priya & Theo
I am very happy to announce we welcomed our son this week past and named him Florin Frederick. He joins Priya Grace and Theo Mabini
I posted during his pregnancy how I would like to use a name with a nod to the Princess Bride (my favourite book & film) and Florin was an option I was considering. I got some great feedback on that thread and Florin only continued to grow on me for reasons outside of it's Princess Bride connection. I love the meaning (flower; flourishing) and loved that the Florin was a coin minted in Australia. We are Australian and my dad did his apprenticeship at the Australian Mint so I remember him telling me stories about coins as a child.
Frederick was my grandfathers name and I wanted to honour him and my mum and Nana by using it. Plus, we thought he might then get the nickname Freddie which we wouldn't mind. He actually reminds me of my grandfather too with a big round face and dimples The meaning 'peaceful ruler' also added to its appeal.
Thank you so much for all the feedback and help I had during the choosing process. I love nameberry <3
