I bet you guys are just dying to know.  lol.

Her name is Zorabella Jazlyn.  So far people have been calling her “Zorabella”, “Zora”, and “Zoe”.  In slightly less usage are the nicknames “Jazzy” and “Bella”.   I guess we will see, in time, which nickname is the one the most used.  For now, I will use “Zora” as her nickname.

Zorabella means “Beautiful Light of Dawn”.  She was born within minutes of dawn breaking in the morning.  Zora has Arabic/Slavic origin, Bella has Italian origns.  Zorah was a town in Judah belonging to the tribe of Dan & the birthplace of Samson.  Bella means “Beautiful”, Zorah means “Light of Dawn” or “Aura of Dawn”, depending on where you find the definition.  The name is also based on a family name “Zora Belle”  (used as a first name and middle name in that case). 

Jazlynn has American & English origins.  The English origin meaning is ” Modern variant of Jasmine; combination of Jocelyn and the musical term jazz”  The American meaning is:  “combination of Jasmine and Lynn”   However, the meaning for us is much deeper.  The females on my mom’s side of the family have variants of “Lynn” as their middle names, and the “JAZ” at the front of the name has long been a nickname for me online (pre-dating “Jennifer_Z by years)  and stands for “Jennifer And Zach” 

She was named on Christmas Day.  Her first Christmas Present.
