Naming our first two children

In this column from 1989 I tell about naming Rob and Rebecca.

Rachel pops in with a question which leads to an answer that might make you giggle.

FYI: When we named Russell I thought he’d have the nickname Rusty, but no red hair for him–red hair skipped a generation as Russell’s son has the hair I wished for his daddy–Russell’s middle name is Charles which comes from my Dad is also Bob’s grandfather’s name.

Not to leave out our fourth child: Rachel Jo, the baby of the family, was named after my Grandma Jo.
