What's In A Name - Abbi Leala


I'm very up-tailed today because this is the first event I've gotten to co-sponsor. So, you wanna know about my name, huh? Well...


My name was Tabitha, but my name didn't fit in with the theme of A and L names in memory of her mommy's parents, Abe and Leah. Because she'd been calling me Tabby, Mama decided Abbi is close enough to Tabby for me to recognize. She was right. Abbi means "father is rejoicing" and is of Hebrew origins. She also likes my name because it's close to her grandfather's name.

Mama likes French middle names.She looked up the meaning of Leala on a baby names website and found that it's French and it means faithful. It's also a good name, she says, because it's close to her grandmother's name. I'm very faithful and I have lots of fun, so I think my names are just right for me, no matter what Ateret says.

Your mom was so thoughtful in naming you, Abbi. We so love that your moniker is in memory of your mommy's grandparents. That makes you even MORE special! :)

Thank you for co-hosting such a neat event.

Big hugs!

What a lovely story! We wondered about your "L" name, because its unusual, and pretty. Thanks for helping to host the event, and for the great addition of the evolution of names. Are you ready to spend your wings and go solo? Purrs!
