What's in a Name?

Eliana
Origin: Hebrew
Meaning: God has answered
Chosen: Mostly because we liked how it sounded and we liked the meaning. It can be shortened to Ellie.

Leiveka
Origin: Scandinavian
Meaning: Beloved
Chosen: It's the feminine form of Leif. Leif's middle name is Wendal, after his mom, Wenda. We decided to carry on the tradition by giving Eliana a middle name after her father.
