what's in a name?

We put so much thought into deciding what our baby's name would be. Along with the name that we picked, also comes a prayer that he would mirror the good and positive things behind the meaning.

Darrell (origin: French) means beloved. This is also the same meaning behind his Dad's name (David). With this name, we pray that Darrell would be a man after God's own heart. We pray that he would gain a lot of favor from God and from men.

Caleb (origin: Hebrew) means faithful and bold. It also means servant of the Lord. Caleb is a Bible character with lots of great stories. He was a leader of Israel after Joshua had died. He was one of the 12 spies sent out to look at the promised land. He was bold, courageous, consecrated to God, vigorous and faithful in old age and invincible because he drove out the giants from his inheritance.

Hebron still belongs to the descendants of Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite because he wholeheartedly followed the Lord, the God of Israel. - Joshua 14:14

But my servant Caleb has a different attitude than the others have. He has remained loyal to me, so I will bring him into the land he explored. His descendants will possess their full share of that land. - Number 14:24
