Meaning of Imara ElizabethAug 6, 2008 8:37 AM
A couple of people have asked me how we came up with the name for the baby. Easy, C picked it out of a name book (just like he did with K's name). I only get to choose the middle names ;)
Imara is a Swahili girl's name meaning strong or resolute.
Elizabeth means God's oath.
I chose Elizabeth for two reasons, first it is my sister's middle name (unfortunately she doesn't like her first name and has already changed it to a variant so that wasn't an option). Second, my sister was named after my grandmother, again Elizabeth being her middle name (Norah being her first and not a popular choice in the 70's as a name for my sister).
So now you know.
