Well the kids have been home for 3 months (Amaris just had her 3 month and Makai’o will have his 3 month with us next week). BUT We are finding that everyone is still mispronouncing both of their names. I guess it is simple for us since that is their names… But here’s the explanation in case you weren’t too sure.
Amaris (ah-MAR-is) not (am-air-is) or (am-er-is).
And no, it’s not the name of a flower, it means promised by God.
Her short form is Mari (mar-ee) not mary or marie.
Makai’o (ma-ka-yo) not (ma-KAY-o) or (mack-ee-o).
It’s Hawaii and it means Gift from God.
His short form is Kai’o or Kai.
And yes, there is an apostrophe in his name…
And yes that is on his official documents….
These are there names.
AMARIS NORA LYNE WILLIAMS
MAKAI’O EZRA LEVI WILLIAMS
