Naming Ceremony Blessings

This card was made for my son's friend, whose baby was being received into the Church of the Latter Day Saints.  I'm not really familiar with the ceremony, so did a little research before I created it.  Can you guess the name of the baby?

Once again, I used the Groovi system by Claritystamp to create the image.  First I added the stained glass window and the robin, followed by the frame which I had to adjust as it is a square frame.  I then added the line blessings, the date and the flourish along the top with the hearts at each end as a finishing touch.
I coloured the line art from behind using my Distress markers; Faded Jeans for the frame, Festive Berries, Walnut Stain and Antique Linen for the Robin, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Spun Sugar for the stained glass window and Tumbled Glass and Festive Berries for the flourish across the top.
Matted onto bright blue pearlescent card and then onto white pearlescent card, I trimmed the base card along the side.  Having done that, I then needed to create a bespoke envelope; for that, I used a sheet of 12" x 12" paper by DCWV and my Big Score board by Crafter's Companion.  I added some specialist glue along the flap, which when dry can be moistened to seal the envelope.
