Erin Maya Murphy

I sent the following to a few of you but thought I would post it here too.

Sarah and I have settled on a name for our little girl, Erin Maya Murphy. It was an easy choice for us. Erin is an Irish name meaning peace, and we chose Maya as a derivative of Sarah's Mother's name. Sarah never met her mother. Coincidentally, the word Maya means "peace" in Sarah's native language and is spelled the same way as the common name. As further confirmation, when we looked into the meaning of Maya in other languages we found the following:
In Hindi, Maya means "God's creative power
In Greek, Maya means "Grandmother or Mother"
In Latin, Maya means "Great"
We get more excited for Erin's arrival every day.
