This weeks names are:
Hope & Rafferty

Hope Solo

Hope Solo

Hope is one of my favorite virtue names.  I love the meaning and the sound.  There is something sweet and wholesome about Hope. Esperanza and Imeda are two beautiful and exotic names that mean “hope”.  Hope was a favorite among Puritans.  Double barrel combinations like Hopewell, Hopestill, Hopeful were also Puritan name choices. Hope Solo is an Olympic gold medalist for the US women’s soccer team.

Rafferty Law son of Jude Law

Rafferty is derived from the old Irish surname ÓRaifeartaigh, Ó Rabhartaigh, or Ó Robhartaigh, meaning “wealthy or prosperous”.  Much more common as a last name than a first name, Rafferty has a wonderful rich & hardy Irish feel. I adore the nicknames Rafe or Raff for Rafferty. Rafferty Jellicoe Law is the handsome son of Jude Law and Sadie Frost.
