Baby Girl Has a Name!

We are so excited to share with you our baby girl's name...

Elyana Joyce

Elyana (pronounced el-ee-AH-nah) means "God has answered" and her little life is such an answer to prayer and we have experienced so many answered prayers lately.

Joyce is Joe's grandmother's name. She really is amazing and I am so excited that baby girl is going to be carrying her name. It also means "Joy" or "Rejoicing"

I like that name a lot! Funny coincidence that you picked Joyce for a middle name. I was just talking with Jason about girls names last week (not that we are expecting, we are not) and I bought up the name Joyce as middle name. 2 thumbs up!
