Baby names that mean peace

User Rating: / 11
PoorBest 

It may seem strange to consider giving an infant a name that means "peace". Children bring chaos. As soon as your pregnant belly starts poking out, passersby will delight in telling you, "Just you wait!" 

Between the sleepless nights and life being nothing like it was before, they aren't all that far off. Still, when the baby falls asleep on your chest, and the house is finally quiet, you will feel it breathing against you: peace.
