If it’s a GIRL: Tatum Marisann Reed
If it’s a BOY: Dylan Andrew Reed
Neither one of us believes in names without significant meaning. We chose Adam as a tribute to Adam Sontag and his middle name, Harrison, is the first name of Will’s deceased father. Tatum is a moniker that Will and I have always loved. Bonus points for the fact that Tatum O’Neal is someone whom I admire greatly. Marisann is a combination of my best friend– my soul sister– Maris [who also named her daughter after me!] and Ann, a maternal family name from Will’s side. Doesn’t it sound so unique and French-y? 😉
Everyone knows I’m a lover of the written word. I am also passionate about music. So Dylan serves as a perfect way to fuse my penchant for the poet Dylan Thomas with the timeless songs of musician Bob Dylan. Andrew was Will’s original middle name– it was changed from William Andrew Elder to William Anthony Reed for reasons too complex to discuss here– and we believe it’s important to recognize that a change of name on a piece of paper doesn’t change who you are.
Tatum Marisann or Dylan Andrew…..we can’t wait to meet you! Mommy, Daddy, and Adam already love you so very much. ❤
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
