The origin of the name, Eva

Today, I decided to search up the origin of Eva's name.

The name, Eva, is a Hebrew word.
It means 'life', 'living one', or 'breath of life'.

Little did we know when we chose Eva's name what it really meant!
We just named her Eva from the movie, Wall-E!!!
If you know Eva's story, you would understand that her birth was a gift from God to us. Nobody knew that momma Hana was pregnant, and we were not even home when Hana gave birth!

Eva is 'life' because she was Hana's gift to us before she left us for Heaven.

She is the 'living one' because we didn't give Hana the care she needed as a pregnant woman and despite all the lack of nutrition from her mother, Eva still ended up being a fat, chubby, healthy puppy and a later, beautiful girl.

Eva is our 'breath of life' and our daily happiness and joy.

Eva seems to suit her very well. It was the perfect choice.

I love that you just got it from a movie. We get asked that question a lot and I always feel kind of silly when I admit we named Shiva after a video game. :-P

By the way, I love your new header image. I don't think I noticed it before!

Loved reading this post. Eva's name definitely fits. She is definitely your breath of life!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Nope, Wall-e isn't neutered. I've researched a LOT about the health benefits and drawbacks of neutering and I believe that for male dogs, there are more health problems that can be caused by neutering than health benefits. :)
