Kyrie Elise Ann, 9lbs., 1oz., 21 inches, October 10, 10:30p.m.
Kyrie, eleison. Christe, eleison. Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.
The words Kyrie, eleison, a transliteration of the Greek Κύριε, ἐλέησον, translated “Lord, have mercy” have been a part of church liturgy for centuries. We chose this theme as a whole for our daughter’s name if she was a girl, with Kyrie Elise Ann as normal-ish names, but sounding and looking much like Kyrie eleison.
