jonathan scot ramsey

matthew was almost named jonathan, and 4 years later we still like the name, so we decided to name him after the collective jonathan's in our life... good name.

scot is my middle name. my parents have informed me that the one 't' is in deference to our scottish heritage. i don't have much evidence of this scottish heritage, but i like the idea of it. someday i will return to visit my people. a lot of scottish folks settled in western nc because it reminded them of the highlands of scotland. there's actually a town (a stretch to call it a town) named 'ramsey' out there. we visited once. no one was around.

i'm actually 50% croatian, so we considered my grandma's maiden name, kutuzovich, but jonathan kutuzovich ramsey doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

so here he is... with the rest of the clan (get it... scottish... clan?)...

Yes! I won!!! I won!!! I really liked Scot as a middle name. Sweetness. Jeff, you are a funny guy. Maybe that's why my husband likes you so much.

like the name. My friend is pregnant and married a guy and his name is "Scot" with one T. And they are naming their son Scot as well. :) I told them I had only ever heard of that name once with one T and that was you ;) He is adorable!!

Congrats Ramsey Clan all the way from Indiana! Glad to hear all is well with your family!

We came across your blog from the Wenger's blog.

Kendal, yes it is weird.

Jeff, could have done without the last picture there. Thanks for being on the spot to catch precious moments such as that though. If I ever have major surgery I'll call you in to document.

Lastly, Congratulations. I am honored to have a child named after me. Only there is no "athan" on my name, so if you could go ahead and kick that off there, that would be great. Thanks!

Jeff, sorry to say that no money was involved. I just won bragging rights; that's all.

Congratulations! I'm glad I got to see Bobbie Jo with child for the last day :) He is beautiful and so is his name! Jonathan is honored. I hope the sprinkle goes well today and you get some diapers, etc :)
