“Ashby was my grandfather’s name. I looked it up and I confirmed that it was dual gender and it means strength like the ash tree,” Nancy explained. “Grace is a family name in Keith’s family and we both said from when we first met each other that if we had a little girl we would want Grace as part of her name.”
“We figure with an ‘A’ name, she will have a chance to be first in line for some things — at least where they don’t go alphabetically by last name,” Nancy laughed.
Ashby will join two brothers, Nancy’s stepsons, Tyler, 11 and Carson, 7, from Keith’s previous marriage.
