Big Families, Adoptions, and Unique Names

I have always loved being from a large family. Now, when I say large I mean I am the oldest of four kids, I don't mean large in the 9 kids under the age of 12 large. I mean larger than the 2.09 kids that is the current American family average. But, that being said, I love all the different dynamics that each of my siblings and I bring to the family. Most of my good friends growing up are from large families, Annie is from a family of 5.Something else that I have always loved the idea of is adoption. Annie and I went to a Steven Curtis Chapman concert a few years ago and had the chance to learn a lot about his organization to promote and encourage adoption, Shaohannah's Hope. What an incredible opportunity to bring a child from a challenging or unwanted circumstance into a loving family and give that child the love and life that they would never have known existed if they had stayed in the world in which they were born into. The other thing that I have always considered myself a connoisseur of is names. I love meeting people with unique names that have a terrific story behind them. Names that are as original as the person whom they are attached to. And these days, uniqueness has been taken to some pretty far reaching extremes by celebrities and by Jane and John Does alike. So what do you get when you combine my love for large families, adoption, and unique names? The family of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Yesterday, she gave birth to twins, number 5 and number 6 in their amazingly fast growing family. The named the boy Knox Leon and their daughter Vivienne Marcheline. This adds to their roster of sons Maddox, 6; Pax, 4, and daughter Zahara, 3; Shiloh, 2. There is no doubt in my mind that that might be the most unique set of six names from the most unique set of circumstances ever. Congrats to the Pitt/Jolie family for setting an example of how you can impact the world with your success and create a new and better world for others. But my only question is, with their sons, Maddox, Pax, and Knox - doesn't that sound more like a group of recently cured afflictions than the names at the bottom of a Christmas card?
