On February 10th, 2011 at 5:42pm, Pacific Time, Marie Makulilo has delivered our cute little Makulilo named BENEDIKT FULBRIGHT MAKULILO. Benedikt has 8.8lbs (weight) and 21 inches (length)
The logic behind the names (Benedikt Fulbright Makulilo)
The name Benedikt (with letter "K" instead of "C" because of Kiswahili and Germany spelling of Benedikt), which comes from the Latin word meaning "the blessed", in honour of both Saint Bendict of Nursia and Pope Benedict XVI. And the name Fulbright is in honour of the prestigious FULBRIGHT scholarship. Fulbright Scholarship is the scholarship which has been named after William James Fulbright, and it has lot of meaning in realizing my dreams today, and MAKULILO is the honor of unsung hero Boniface Makulilo, my father
Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement.
The Makulilos (Marie, Ernest and Benedikt)
