Our Little Guy has a Name!

Several people have asked what names we are thinking about for the baby. After a lot of back and forth and input from friends and relatives, we have decided on Cyrus Allen Sellers. We decided on Cyrus after it was suggested by Justin's godfather Boyd. Here's the official baby name definition:

It is of Persian origin. Derived via the Greek form Kyros of the name of several kings of Persia. In earlier times, it was linked with Greek "kyrios" meaning "lord". Historical: Cyrus the Great (fifth century BC) conquered Babylon at the height of its powers and founded the Persian Empire. Biblical: Cyrus is prophetically named in the book of Isaiah as the one who would overthrow Babylon and liberate the captive Israelites. Also the name of a fourth-century saint, a doctor in Alexandria. Inventor Cyrus McCormick; former Secretary of State Cyrus Vance.

Allen was Justin's father's middle name. We thought it would be nice to honor his memory and that it went well with Cyrus.

Stay tuned for more baby news!
