He's bonny, isn't he!
About his name:
I always wanted to name a son of mine "Jack", mostly after my Grandpa, but also because I think it's a cool name.
We couldn't name him Jack with us all being "M"'s – and played with the "M" letter exchange – to "Mack".
Smooooth, and of course, also the name of the revolutionary turtle of Dr. Seuss.
I like naming kids after revolutionary turtles.
But My One True Darling felt it needed something…more. So, in spirit of things Scotch – honoring my Grandpa Jack who has strong Scottish roots, we thought Quinn felt right.
Like a well fitting glove, it slipped right around "Mac".
Quinn, "wise counsel", born in the year of the water dragon.
His Vietnamese name is "Minh Long" – which means "bright dragon" – and it connects him with Micah, whose Vietnamese name is "Xuan Minh" – "bright spring".
We are happy you are here.
