Its all in a name...

Pierce Gray Eugene Hammond...sounds like a mouthful, huh? Our little boy has quite a name and a lot to live up to. He's proudly named from various family members. We'll start at the beginning...

Pierce - My grandmother's maiden name was Pierce (Emma Jean Hunt). However we call her Sweetie, a name given to her by my brother. She truly personifies the word and from my understanding, that temperament is a trait of the Pierce side of the family.

Gray - We get this name from Charles Clifford Gray (my husband Charles' grandfather). He passed a couple of years ago but he really made an impression on everyone he came in contact with. I can testify to that and I only knew him for a very short period of time. As sheriff of Deming, New Mexico, he was an amazing man and an amazing roll model to all.

Eugene - Ok, ok...I know. This one may seem a bit cruel and unusual, but this one was a must. Eugene is my dad's middle name (Ron Eugene Hunt). He is actually named after his grandfather on the Pierce side as well. Since there is a definite possibility that this will be my only child, I had to squeeze Eugene in there somewhere. I promise though, that we will reserve the name's use only for when Mr. Pierce is in SERIOUS TROUBLE!

And so you have Pierce Gray Eugene Hammond. If we would have had a little girl we would have named her Emma Grayce Hammond.
