mommy moments

Can you believe it’s Friday already? This week’s Mommy Moments theme is “Name Game,” the story behind the names of our kids or the meaning of our kids’ names.


After listing down a few boys’ names that I got from my Internet search, my husband and I both agreed that Justin is how we would call our baby boy. The name “Justin” is of Latin origin, which means “just, upright, righteous.” Saint Justin (second century) was a Greek philosopher who wrote of the moral values of Christianity. We like our son to grow up exactly as his name implies. We want him to be morally upright. And to tell the world that he is his daddy’s son, we added “Edward,” (from his father’s name “Eduardo”), so my son’s complete first name is “Justin Edward.”

  1. Those are cool names. I was wishing I could name my son Edward. Justin seems to have become popular in the Philippines over the last decade.

  2. I like the name justin kaya nga justine din pinangalan sa baby girl ko. Sa internet din namin nakuha ang name I just forgot the meaning, now you reminded me sa meaning of the name. Nice pick of name tetcha.

  3. That's what I want my daughter to become too – morally upright. But your son has the name to be always reminded. How cool!

  4. i love the name edward (dahil certified Twi-Mom ako).. Im thinking of giving the same name if ever i have a son in the future, Edward Anthony.

    Great choice momi.

  5. Mommy Tetch, i know justin will be a righteous person because you raise him to be that way. he has a beautiful name, one that is very well-thought of.

  6. Hi Tetcha, thanks for visiting and commenting on my site. I also like the name Justin, parang Justin Timberlake. 🙂

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
