Before I gave birth to my little boy last 2012, I was really having a hard time looking and searching for a perfect name for him. Like any other mom or dad, we want to have that ideal name for our precious one. It took us more than 5 months to finalize the name of our little boy. After all the research we had, we finally decide to name him DIRK LUDWIG.
Why Dirk? Why Ludwig? So here how it goes.
Dirk came from the famous Dallas Mavericks Player (Dirk Nowitzki). Not only my son’s father is an avid basketball fan, he himself is basketball player. He was a varsity player from one known Universities here in Cebu City. Last 2011 (I got pregnant July 2011), Dallas Mavericks was the 2011 NBA Finals Champion and Dirk Nowitzki was awarded as the MVP (Most Valuable Player).
Not only we want to name our son from 1 of the famous Sport Icon, Dirk also has a very meaningful meaning. The name Dirk means 'The ruler of the people.' It is of Germanic and Dutch origin. It is mostly used in Dutch and English. (Source: www.ask.com). I want my son to set a good example to others.
Ludwig came from the famous musician (composer & pianist), Ludwig van Beethoven. I am a music lover that is why I chose this as the 2nd name of our little man.
How about you mommies and daddies? What is the story behind the names of your babies?
