Until today, I thought my kids’ names were pretty cool…


but, now, somewhere out there is a kid named Govinda.  And that kid gets the awesome name award. 

Synnove, Kjell and Broder can’t even come close to Govinda. 

How can anyone compete with Govinda?  Especially when the meaning of the name is:

One who is good at finding cows.

Dang!  I wish I had come across Govinda 5, 8 or 11 years ago. 


About Sandie

A little background: A mother of 3, two boys and a girl. Married young to a good man. No longer young, but he is still a good man. Grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, lived several years in small town Alaska, spent a couple years in the city of Madison, currently residing not too far from down town Anchorage. Drink a crazy amount of coffee. Fiercely loyal to my friends. Truly rabid in my defense of family. Beyond thankful that my God loves me enough to allow me to doubt and question.

  1. We still laugh about “Oranjello” and “Lemonjello.” We cite you as the source on that one. But boy, wouldn’t folks have a field day with THIS name!

    When I was pregnant, we would pick obscure names from Genesis or Chronicles and scare everyone with the thought that this baby might be called “Arphaxad” or “Hazelelponi.” The looks on their faces was priceless. And they were visibly relieved when the child was born and given a “normal” name.

    For some reason, nobody asked what baby names we’d picked out when I was pregnant with the third . . . . . hee hee!
