Picking a name for our son was hard.  It's a big responsibility.  They (not you!) have to live with it for the rest of their lives.  We didn't really start thinking about names until fairly late in the game (we left the hospital without finalising his name on any documents, actually!)  We needed a name that can be easily pronounced in Malay (or at least close).  Our last name didn't make it any easier.  

Ellis is the Westernized version of Elijah from the Bible.  Elijah's name in Hebrew translates as "God is Yahweh".  The Lord is my God.  Lee is my dad's middle name. 

So, there you go.  So much time and thought and prayer put into two words, that then become a name.  Glad that's over!
