A Baby Girl

Her name will be:

Anna Sophia Hasselblad

We chose this name out of a catalog of Leif's family genealogy. Anna Sophia Hasselblad was Christened: 02 JUN 1795 Jakob Och Johannes, Stockholm, Stockholm, Sweden.

It is important to us to have names that honor Leif's heritage, but also are somewhat relevant in the current generation. As soon as I saw Anna Sophia I knew that was the one.

We plan on calling her Sophie.


  1. That's really cute! I love the name Sophie! We've talked about using Sophie as a baby name before. I'm sure she's going to be so adorable!

  2. That is such a cute name! Good for you guys!

  3. Congratulations! I love the name. . . but then you know my daughter is Hannah Sofia, right?

  4. oh, and we chose it from Rob's family. He is swedish and his great grandmother (who he knew and who shared his birthday) was Sofia Elisabeth. So we have Signe Elisabeth and Hannah Sofia. Their first names were also from his ancestry. I love using family names.

  5. Ha! No I didn't know Hannah's middle name was Sofia!? That is too funny.
    Their names will be pretty similar :)
    I love using family names too. Gives a sense of purpose and deeper feeling and a link to the past.

  6. Yay! VERY cute name! I can't wait to meet her. :)
