I can’t seem to see these stories – a shame as ‘Titus Whitfield’ is an awesome name, and I’d love to read more!
This post seems to be disappearing! 🙁 Please fix when you can, I feel incomplete!
Is this story gone or is it just me?

What a fantastic name—so very handsome! Great story, and wonderous name!
Thanks all for your kind words, and Verity for publishing our story! This is such a fun idea. I look forward to reading future stories!
_The Tale of Titus Whitfield_ sounds like a nineteenth century novel. It’s a wonderful name, and I so enjoyed hearing how you arrived at it, THANK YOU!
I LOVE that picture !
Titus Whitfield is a fabulous name, Sara! Very, very handsome. I love that the name has meaning for you, as well as the story behind it. Thanks so much for sharing!
Verity, this was a great idea! I can’t wait to hear the rest of the name stories! 🙂
Thanks for sharing, Sara!
Titus is THE favorite around our house, has been for a few years, though didn’t feel right on our nearly-one-year-old son… He became Eben instead. But I am always delighted to hear of a Titus, and the combination is really handsome. My husband says we’re done, but I just have a feeling we’ve got a Titus in our future sometime too… 🙂

Great story! You had to go allll the way to T, huh? Haha! But it was worth it! It’s funny how when you hear the name, you just know.
Charlotte Vera says
The name is absolutely fantastic — classic and sophisticated while at the same time quirky and unique. It’s also decidedly masculine. Thank you so much for sharing your story with us!

Great story and I really like your son’s name. Titus is unusual yet familiar. 🙂

What a wonderful story! Thank you so much for sharing, Sara! I love how subtle of a connection you created for your husband; it seems so special because it’s not blatantly in-your-face. It’s something intimate between the two of you and your little one, and I think that’s amazing. Titus Whitfield is to-die-for.
Fantastic! Thank you Sara for sharing and Verity for publishing! I think Titus is a wonderful name and the middle is very cool in how it honors your husband.
This (reading others’ name stories) is fun!
YAY ! The stories are finally here 😉
Lovely name for what sounds like a lovely family. Whitfield is an inspired choice
That was a pleasure to read 🙂
