The Name

When choosing a name for the baby, we felt it had to be another "R" name, like his brother Reed.  We chose Ramsey, my mother's maiden name.  For the middle name, we wanted something with a significant meaning. When we found out Armand, his grandfather's name, meant "Strong Soldier" it seemed like the perfect choice. We want our little guy to stay strong and fight for a healthy life at home with us :) The name Ramsey means "from a wild garlic island"...I guess his name is strong on two counts!!


  1. I love the use of your mom's maiden name and his Grandpa Armand's name. That will definately add too his strength. Prayers, positive thoughts, and love from your cousin in Michigan.

  2. Dear Dennis, Lisa, Reed, and Ramsey,

    Sending you love, thoughts, and prayers from (more) cousins in Michigan. Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us.

    Love, Tanya, Kevin and Kai (cousin Marlene's family)

  3. Thanks Tanya and Family....I'm glad the prayers are spanning the country!

  4. Love the name Ramsey Lisa! Emma and I pray for you all each night before bed. I like the encouraging stories that you posted here. I read a couple and they both have good endings :-)

  5. Thanks LuAnn! That's why I posted those other blogs, who doesn't love a happy ending :)

  6. I have my great grandmother's maiden name as my middle name. I love the name! Been thinking of you all and sending loads of thoughts and prayers.

  7. My Grandma was Freda Ramsey Moural and my Aunt Judy Moural Snyder shared your story with me. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers. The Lord definitely doesn't give us more than we can handle. Our almost 2 year old was born with Spina Bifida. He never ceases to amaze us with his strength and how much he blesses us every day.

    God Bless you all

    Love Michelle Moural Lanko

  8. Michelle- so glad to hear that your son is doing well- may God continue to bless you as well!

  9. May God Bless you and your family, Armand.
    Wishing Ramsey God speed.
