Our Favorite Knock Knock Jokes Of All Time

When my son Matteo was around 4 years old my husband started teaching him knock-knock jokes. He giggled and giggled and they laughed and it became an everyday joke fest. There were knock-knock jokes in the car, at dinner, at bedtime and anytime he wanted to play. We also invented a bunch of silly made up jokes.

When it came time to find a name for my banner company, I started a list and started brainstorming with my husband. All of a sudden he yelled out Knock Knock Banners! We both loved it and loved how it tied in to our family.

Knock Knock Jokes

We found my step-daughter’s book The Clown Arounds Go On Vacation by Joanna Cole but when we started reading it to our son we didn’t realize it had knock-knock jokes in the story.

All About The Name Jarah

Jarah is a name I have never heard of but I’m happy to share some fun facts and his story with you. His grandmother surprised him with his very own personalized race car door banner for his birthday. His name is now proudly displayed on his bedroom door :)

According to sheknows.com Jarah is a Hebrew boy’s name and in Hebrew it means he gives sweetness. It is pronounced JAY-rah and other variations are Jarrah & Jeriah. Thinkbabynames.com states that Jarah is not a popular first name in the US or outside of the US but you will see below where his parent’s inspiration to name their baby came from. It is quite a unique and special name to them.

Jarah

Mom and Dad’s Story:

There was a great long list of girl's names in a document on Jarah’s parent’s computer; next to it was a much shorter list of boy's names. Mom was pregnant and they both didn't want to know the sex of the baby, so they had to decide on two options. When they finally chose, they kept it quiet and waited for the baby to show up. It was a boy, and the name they picked suited him - Jarah.

The name came to them from a U2 song, One Tree Hill, where Jara refers to a South American freedom fighter; they even named their ferret after him. They liked the sound of it and when they started taking it more seriously, as a baby name, it really grew on them.Race Car Door Banner

The name is Hebrew and comes from Chronicles. It means 'he brings sweetness' or 'honeycomb' or 'sweet like honey.' It means even more because one of their favorite songs is Sweetness by Jimmy Eat World.

Jarah's name has layered meanings to his parents and they are so happy they gave him a unique, ancient and beautiful name.

This is Jarah’s story and we would love to hear yours. Did you name your son Jarah or any variation of the name? Was your child named after a family member? What was your process in selecting your child’s name? We would love to hear your "how I named my baby" story.

What’s in a Name?

Victoria Lady Bug Door BannerWe hope you enjoyed our most recent “What’s in a Name” blog post about Vanessa.

Victoria loves her Lady Bug door banner and here is her story. Her parents found it so easy to find their daughters name. As they sat waiting for their very first ultrasound the name just came to Victoria’s Mom. She had never considered the name before but when it did enter her mind she knew it was 'the name'. She mentioned it to Victoria’s Dad as they waited and he loved it as much as her. From then on they referred to her belly as Victoria. When Victoria was about 18 months she had trouble saying her name and decided that everyone would call her Tia. This stuck and now the family refers to her as Tia. She is now 4 and has no trouble saying her name and insists that everyone else calls her Victoria.
According to thinkbabynames.com Victoria is pronounced vic-TOR-ee-ah and is of Latin origin. The meaning of Vanessa is victory and was a goddess who smiled on the ancient Roman people for centuries. Victoria has 31 different variations. Vittoria is an Italian form, Viktoria is Czech and Victoire is French.

Some famous people named Victoria are:

Victoria Justice, American actress
Victoria "Tori" Spelling, American actress
Victoria Woodhull, American suffragist
Victoria Ruffo, Mexican actress
Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice
Victoria Principal, American actress
Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, who will eventually be Queen
Queen Victoria was the Monarch of Great Britain and Ireland from June 1837 until her Death.

This is Victoria’s story and we would love to hear yours. Did you name your child Victoria or any variation of the name?

Was your child named after a family member? Celebrity? What was your process in selecting your child’s name? We would love to hear your "how I named my baby" story.

Stay tuned for another blog post of one of the names on our clients banner.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Around mid-term Or’s mother took a much needed nap in the afternoon. She had a dream that her baby wanted her to call her Or so she called her husband and it was decided. It’s incredible when a dream turns into reality.

According to behindthename.com Or can be for a girl or boy and means ‘light’ in Hebrew. Other variations are Ora and Orah.

Or is a unique name which is mostly used in Israel. Do you know anyone famous with the name Or?

We hope you enjoyed our first “What’s in a Name” blog post last week. Josie and Jacob are brother and sister and their birthdays are a month apart. They each got as a gift their own birthday banners for their rooms. Josie loves her birthday princess banner and Jacob has fun showing off his soccer birthday banner to his friends.

What’s in a name?

Welcome to my first blog post in my series on the origins of children's names. The concept of my company began with wanting our son Matteo's name displayed on everything we bought for his room and around the house. Before going to China, we thoroughly researched names and narrowed the list down to a few. I was going through the list with my sister and niece and they came up with other names as well. One of them happened to be Matteo which we immediately adored! As my husband and I were heading to China, we couldn't wait to meet Matteo and teach him his new name. We loved it and could hardly wait to have Matteo's name proudly displayed in his room.

According to BabyNamesWorld.com one of the origins and meanings of the name Matteo is described as gift of God and originated from Italy. It's pronounced “mah TEH oh”. Other similar names are Mateo and Mathew.

Other famous people through history with the name Matteo (from Wikipedia) :

Matteo Bandello, Italian novelist
Matteo Bisiani, Italian archer
Matteo Maria Boiardo, Italian Renaissance poet
Matteo Carcassi, famous guitarist and composer
Matteo Ferrari, Italian football player who currently plays for Montreal Impact
Matteo Goffriller, renowned 18th-century Italian cello maker
Matteo Messina Denaro, Italian criminal. Is on the top 10 most wanted list of the world
Matteo Perez d'Aleccio, Italian painter of devotional, historical and maritime subjects
Matteo Renzi, Italian Prime Minister
Matteo Ricci, Italian Catholic missionary in China
Matteo Sereni, Italian football goalkeeper
Matteo Stefanini, Italian rower
Matteo Tosatto, Italian cyclist who rides for Quick Step-Innergetic in the UCI ProTour
Matteo Vittucci, Italian-American dancer, known professionally as Matteo

This is our story and we would love to hear yours. Did you name your child Matteo or any variation of the name? It’s a popular name these days!

Was your child named after a family member? Celebrity? What was your process to select the name? We would love to hear your "how I named my baby" story.
