Daphné's name

a very good friend of ours made this for Daphné when she was born (9th of January, 2015) - isn't it beautiful? :

that same friend wrote this on the back of the card :

"if Daphné is associated with the laurel, and Christiane means follower of Christ, then we are reminded that as followers of Jesus we are running a race marked out for us.  Running in such a way as to win a prize or a crown as in 1 Corinthians 9:24-25.  The wreath of which it speaks was commonly a wreath of laurel.  Knowing this, the name of this newest daughter of the King, Daphné Christiane, is essentially, 'The Prize for Following Christ.' "

thanks friend (wink) !
