My husband & I went through all kinds of names but in the end we had chosen Joaquin. The meaning of the name fit perfect for our son because God had granted a son. He is now 17 months and we could not have picked a more perfect named. He is such a sweet beautiful boy w/lots of energy & very intelligent! Not to mention how everyone loves his name. We have not given him a nickname b/c to our surprise, everyone has been able to pronounce his name correctly. I love this name!" May. 8, 2009:

"The name is very difficult to place and it is a very individual name. For my wife and I it was from a friend of mine from Ecuador...he was a kind soul and an excellent person. We held the name close to our heart and waited to see if our son met what we thought 'Joaquin' meant. Six weeks early and very spanish in looks Joaquin was IT! That said pronuciation and spelling are difficult until we move to Mexico or Spain...best to all." Mar. 16, 2007:

"Not knowing I were pregnant, and almost give him up for adoption, not knowing the gender and had no name. At birth it was love at first sight. My only boy, and I named him Joaquin.At 2 yrs 7mnths he became a hit and run victim. On our way to Hospital, he died in my arms...however, doctors tried their best, with no heartbeat or sign of life, and miraculously after approx 25 min. they had a very weak pulse and heartbeat.Now, when searching the origen and meaning of the name, I do understand why my little boy had to have that name. He were literally lifted and established by Jehovah. Praise God." Feb. 2, 2018:
