Behind the name:

Merit

Seven years ago when we were pregnant with our son we were going through names we liked and made a list of boys names and a list of girls names. We came across the name Merit and my husband was completely sold on it and didn’t want to hear any other options for a little girl. We of course found out we were having a boy and ultimately my favorite name ( Brody ) won and my husband picked the middle name ( Ronald ) in honor of a dear friend who had passed. Over the years since having our son we had gone through some unfortunate losses and he continued to have hope that one day we would have our little girl named Merit. When the time came and we found out we were having a girl the choice was pretty easy! This child who was so desperately wanted will always know her worth and even in times where the world may cause her to doubt it she will have her name to remind her.

Elina

As far as Elina goes it was my turn to pick a middle name to honor someone and I chose to honor both my mother ( Ina ) and my grandmother ( Ellen ). I also loved the meaning “bright shining light” because after having such a hard time getting a baby to stick she became our hope in the darkness.
