How Did I Get My Name?

Your parents knew, before you were born, that you would be a boy and so...both being the computer wizards that they are...they spent hours, maybe days, searching the internet (not to mention books of baby names) trying to find a name just for you that would be unique.

Your Great Uncle Larry suggested Jean-Pierre or even Antoine (after your great great grandfather) but your mom and dad would have nothing to do with such names. They both had their own ideas and having a French name just wasn't on their minds. Mom was considering "Caleb" because it wasn't common but also wasn't weird, but Dad liked "Andrew". As it seems to sometimes happen wtih married folks, they couldn't come to an agreement betwen them.

Sometime during the Thanksgiving holiday, Great Uncle Larry suggested using both, as in, "Caleb Andrew"...sorry Caleb, it may have been the wine! Mom and Dad both liked it...so there you have it...this was to be your name. As an aside, your Great Unlce Larry also thought it would be cool to be "Cal", for short, since it is a nickname for Caleb AND your initials at the same time.

As an aside...in the year 2004 the name Caleb ranked # 33 in the list of popular baby names. From 1920-1960, your name didn't even show up in the top 200. The name Andrew ranked # 6 in 2004, has always been (since records were kept) in the top 100 and for the past decade has been in the top 10.

 
CALEB  (m) "meaning faithful, whole-hearted" (Hebrew). Caleb, a companion of Moses and Joshua, was noted for his astute powers of observation and fearlessness in the face of overwhelming odds; his devotion to God is symbolized by the "dog" in some traditions. The name was popular among the Puritans, and was introduced by them to America. ANDREW  (m) "strong" or "manly, valiant, courageous" the name is of Greek origin, and its meaning is "man, warrior". English form of the Greek name Andreas. Biblical: the first chosen of the 12 apostles. Saint Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland and Russia. The "Saint Andrew's Cross", representing Scotland, appears on the flag of the United Kingdom.
