What’s in a name?

And as today is “day 8,” I can share that his name is Noah Matan Bobby mylastname-Nardaslastname.  Noah, after Narda’s father, Norman, z”l, and Matan after my paternal grandmother, Muriel, z”l.  Bobby is the name his birthmother gave him.  Matan also means gift, in Hebrew.  And we are truly blessed with this gift.
