I never knew what Zoe meant--but it fits MY Zoe very well.

Isaac means "He Laugheth" because in the Bible, when Abraham and Sarah were finally given a son, they laughed. I love it. We sort of felt that way when I found out I was having him.

Noah...I don't know! I used to know, but I can't remember. I love name meanings.

I LOVE the meaning of my name! :D It fits me so well. I looked of the meaning of Noah's name. It means rest, or peace.

Boquinha said...

LOL! From what I know about Noah, it sounds like you should've named him Zoe, too!! :P

Thanks for the comment Charli! I'm actually eleven. (I need to change the about me thing). That's so cool you like horses! :D I haven't had to deal with things like mean girls much. My mom runs a home school group, and everybody is really nice. :)
