Introducing Robyn Zuzu
Once we pick the name, we save it. We pray daily for our baby by name and spend the rest of our pregnancy bonding with our baby. Now that we have two babies it was a little harder. We’d decided after our first that we wanted to do two things with our children’s names.
2. We want to incorporate Christmas into the middle name.
Christmas is a very special time of year, especially for our family as we got married at Christmas time sooooo, why not?
I first came across the name while looking online at lists of Christmas names and when I realized that Zuzu came from It’s a Wonderful Life, I was in love.
Literally in love.
It’s a Wonderful Life has a special place in my husbands heart, and a growing place in mine.
So, the research started and here is what I found out.
1. Our Zuzu is not the only one, in fact one Zuzu was a popular Brazilian fashion designer.
2. It is a form of the name Susan (actually Zuzu is a nickname for “Susan” in It’s a Wonderful Life)
3. It means Lily in Slavonic
Zuzu is not only fun to say, but it has personality and as each day passed, I couldn’t imagine our baby to be named anything different.
She was Zuzu.
We struggled with the “R” name for a while, but when we started looking at meanings, everything was clear and the name Robyn Zuzu was hers.
Robyn, which means “famous” and Zuzu which means “Lily” reminds us of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
So, when you meet our Zuzu, may not only your heart be warmed by memories of Christmas, and how wonderful life is but you think about our Lord and Savior.
