Hi all! Today is Fun Facts About Names Day a day where people are encouraged to learn about the meaning of their names and the history behind them.
When Dakota first joined our family his name was “Tanner.” Now, there is nothing wrong with that name, but to me, it just didn’t suit Dakota. I had liked the name “Dakota” for years and when I looked up the meaning, it said “Trusted Friend.” (that was the American Indian meaning and I am too lazy to look up what tribe it was). That was it for me. I promptly named him Dakota.
As for me…the name “Caren” means “Pure” and it says it is a “Swedish baby name.” I have also seen the name attached to “Catherine” since my parents spelled my name in a non-traditional form. The question is “Pure” WHAT? (That is a rhetorical question, no need to answer! lol)
So, what does YOUR pet’s name mean? What does YOUR name mean?
Also, we would like to thank those who stopped over to Dakota’s blog to wish him a Happy Birthday. We try extremely hard to always acknowledge our friend’s birthdays by leaving a comment on their blog, and we do it whenever we are aware of a birthday, so we DEEPLY THANK those who took the time to stop by. Dakota received some nice photos/cards that we are sharing in the form of collages.
Once again we thank you all so very much!! We have another thank you planned for Friday, (hopefully!) of something special that Dakota received in the mail.
To us, a 10th birthday is a pretty big deal, (for that matter, ANY pet’s birthday is a big deal!) so once again thanks to those who visited Dakota’s blog on his special day.
