gift from God

We just miscarried our third baby. He was a surprise; we were not expecting another so soon. But it became obvious to us that this was by the will of God, and we were very thankful. When we lost him, we named him Nathaniel. When we have another boy, his middle name will be Nathaaniel, named after his big brother.

My brother's name is Nathaniel. It's so nice to know the meaning of his name. I'll tell him to be a nice brother to me because he is a gift from God.

My dad's middle name is Nathaniel so when I was born prematurely by 2 months he gave me the name Fayth Nathania. I love it since my first name is spelt uniquely while the other one emphasizes the fact that I truly am a Gift from God. My little brother's middle name is also Nathaniel.
A great name

I named my son Nathaniel John. He is 11 now and definitely a gift from God. I also like the fact that the apostle Nathaniel in the bible is the one who Jesus addressed with "in whom there is no guile" or deceit.

My Nathaniel will be 3 in August. When our son was born we did not know that in a few days he would be diagnosed with Down Syndrome nor did we know the meaning of our son's name. What a gift it was for a nurse to go out of her way to tell us that Nathaniel meant "Gift from God." Dealing with Nate's challenges on the daily basis and seeing what courage he has we know he is a "True Gift.'
Nathaniel / spelled Nathanael
written by immom2all, July 24, 2008
Nathanael is the way that it is spelled in older versions of the King James Bible. Every one tries to spell my son's name wrong. In fact they spelled it wrong in the county birth certificate books and I had to jump through hoops to get it changed.
My Nathaniel
written by Bonita , December 31, 2009
I had 2 children then miscarried my 3rd pregnancy at 7 months. Shortky there after I found out I was pregnant again. Shortly after finding out it was a boy, we decided on Nathaniel Liam. I was a victim of severe physical abuse and then ended up delivering about 7 weeks early. Not only was my "gift from God" healthy but he was a staggering 6lbs. 9 oz. about 2 months early! Only God could safe keep my baby boy from the awful start he had in womb. He is now 6 and is still the sweetest thing. So much so in that I know it is "in him" not from training. . .

On another note, I had a childhood friend named Nathaniel, and his nickname was "Thane." Always thought that was a cool nickname, but not for my baby. .
great Name
