Eliza Bella Marie!!

Yes, a couple of people guessed it today. Good thing because my little secret keepers broke down again and spilled it to someone else... behind my back of all things. :)

Eliza means several things: (French) consecrated to God, (English) my God is bountiful, God of plenty, (Hebrew) oath of God, and, my favorite, God is satisfaction.

Bella, means beautiful, and Marie, wished for child.

Marie is one of my middle names and Andrew's Aunt's name. I also found out it is the real name of one of my Great Grandmothers, she went by Mary Angel but was named Marie Angelique, and the middle name of my other Great Grandmother, Signe Marie. It is also the middle name of my Aunt Patti. How special to have such a wonderful family name, even more than I originally thought.

Well, it was fun while it lasted but I was starting to feel guilty about the leaks so I'm glad it's just out there now. Thanks for playing - especially Andrew's sisters who out guessed everyone!!

Well now that the game is over are you still going to tell us the other clues? You said that I would think #5 was funny. Did it have something to do with 'My Fair Lady'?

Ruthe,
I'll try to get to it. It's a video clue. :)
