Ergo 22 | my Indian name

[I’m not sure how to use “ergo” in this post…ERGO, I’ve used this sentence.]

I am one who, even now, can be called “daddy’s little girl”…maybe that would be my Indian name…if I were Indian, of course. Tears came to my eyes this morning when I opened this email from my daddy.

And Cathi would say: Carry me Daddy

Deuteronomy 33:12
“Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him,
for he shields him all day long,
and the one the LORD loves rests between his shoulders.”

  1. AWWW! I had an Indian name once. I can’t remember what it was or what it meant….I will have to try to remember. Anyway, I worked at this Outdoor Wilderness program and we used alot of the Native American culture in our program. it was really cool.

  2. I think I just fell in love with your dad.

    I love when my dad calls and says, “Hey, how’s my babydoll today?” I immediately feel wrapped up and secure.

  3. wow…ramsey, i’m glad your indian name had so much unforgettable impact 😉 I would have loved to experience that though! I can do the rain dance like no other!!!

    sara…i know…he calls me his little jewish princess, and i melt…there’s a safety there that is incomparable to anything else, but it also has given me such a special picture of the Father’s love.

  4. I know isn’t that terrible. It had something to do with taking care of children although they threatened to give me a name that meant something like “she who talks too much and laughs too loudly.”!

  5. Tam… it makes me sad you didn’t have a dad around too. I’d be happy to share mine with you now; he’d hug you and give you a nickname before I’d have the chance to introduce you. (He nicknamed me Gitz and I thought that was my name long before I knew my real one.)

  6. I remember my dad used to put me on his shoulders and sing, ” Happy Trails”….so this reminds me of that:)

    Ergo, I think this verse goes without saying…ya know:)
    sort of a correlation between the two!!!

    Love ya!

  7. taminator…i’m thinking that has to be the most appropriate name for you! [makes me miss laughing w/ you…i need to go watch our video again…that’ll make me feel better].

    sara – i love it that you’re willing to share your daddy! that’s awesome…I’m way too selfish for that one! 😉 Oh, and i had your name as “glitz”…fixed it – all is well.

    lil’ang – that story makes me smile! and your ergo statement makes me cut up laughing! If one of my students responded to me like that…I’d be in a 5 minute moment of bewilderment!

  8. I didn’t notice the mistake… but that’s funny!!! I can be a little glitzy at times, but I’m afraid sitting here in my pjs at 1 in the afternoon wouldn’t really fit that bill. 🙂

  9. Not have been the most popular member of my family I won’t repeat what have been called. 🙂

    I found a list of Indian names on “”.

    Ergo – your father would be “Alo” which means “spirit guide; he who looks up”. A very wise man.

    Mine would be Beshkno, which means “bald eagle” in Potawatomi. At least the bald part is right. 🙂

  10. Hey, girlie… I tried to leave a comment on your hubby’s blog but it said it had trouble processing it? Anyway, just wanted to tell him he did a great job with his talk that you posted. He was definitely a vessel for something greater.
