~ Robert & Josephine ~
The first Robert and Josephine
The second Robert and Josephine
My Grandparents names were Robert and Josephine. My dad was named after my Grandpa and Robert was named after my daddy. When Rob and Nessa sent out their wedding invitation, my Aunt's all noticed Nessa's full name. Josephine Vanessa. Nessa doesn't like Josephine, she thinks it is an old ladies name. I told her to think of it the way Leonardo DiCaprio says it as he is standing behind Kate Winslet during the famous scene in the movie The Titanic. "Come Josephine my flying machine, going up she goes... up she goes"... then the first kiss. She just giggled and shook her head no, she wasn't going for it. But! she would have to see the Titanic again and check that scene out. I love that name and so does Diandra, who at one time had even planned on naming her daughter Josephine and calling her Joey for short. I think that is adorable. My family was thrilled that we had another Robert and Josephine in the family and felt like it was a good sign being that my grandparents were married for a long time. At the wedding we all mentioned it and felt like Grandpa and Grandma were pretty tickled about it. They have both passed away, although we all felt as if they we were with us.
I think that my grandma would beg to differ on that old lady name too... umm there is also Josie and The Pussy Cat Dolls!
