Kory’s name is very meaningful, we didn’t just stumble upon it one day in a baby name book and think ‘oh that’s a nice name!’ (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!) But after discussing names, we only had the one name in mind for a boy, it’s the same name we kept coming back to, the only name we could agree on, the only one that seemed to ‘stick’ with us and it’s the same name that I’m going to tell you about.
As soon as we found out we were having a baby boy we already knew what we wanted to name him and he had the same name all throughout the pregnancy and was named Kory George Lonsdale on the 08/08/2016. The day he was born. And so I thought it would be nice to share with you the reason behind his name.
Kory George Lonsdale, our first born baby boy. His first name ‘Kory’ is a combination of my name and his dads names together.
Kirsti & Rory = Kory
His middle name ‘George’ is my great grandads name who I was very close to growing up before he passed away. He was a great man, very kind and I have very fond memories of him.
Despite being born in August, Kory was only meant to be due in mid September. He was born 6 weeks early, weighing 4lb 7oz after my waters had spontaneously started leaking. Him being born early took us completely by surprise, I had a very straight forward pregnancy with no complications so him making an early appearance was a shock and a bit of a mystery to us all… As a result of him being born earlier than planned in August meant that he now shared the same birth month as his great great grandad George who he happens to be named after, which also means that they both share the same star sign too. They are both Leo’s.
‘Lonsdale’ is Kory’s dads last name. We are getting married in 2020 and I can’t wait for the day until we all share the same name.
And so that’s the story of Kory’s name. I’ve always liked names with a meaning behind them and Kory’s name is definitely special to us.
What did you name your child? Is there a reason behind their name?
I’d love to know!
