Alex and I have decided on Lydia Louise Rossow for her name. Lydia was a woman in the Bible who showed great trust, faith and servanthood to God. She was a "dealer of the purple cloth" which meant she was probably a wealthy business woman since purple cloth denoted royalty and was very expensive. She was later (and more importantly) better known for her servanthood and hospitality, allowing Paul and many other followers of Christ to stay in her home. Read more about Lydia here... http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art40534.asp. Louise is my mom's middle name...another woman of faith whose values we can only hope filter down to our Lydia. Louise was given to my mom after one of my grandmother's best friends, Billye Louise Tooman.
