CrossTimber is a family company that specializes in making NamePlaques, NameCards, and Name-Meaning Bookmarks in 1997. Name Gifts were started in 2005 and has since expanded to quite an online family business.
The gifts are personalized and specialize in name meaning gifts. The names are researched and then provided in graphics on gifts like bookmarks, framed pictures, mugs, and music boxes. These are very special, high-quality gifts and even multi-name gifts are available as well as family names.
What We Received
We received a 7×9 framed Name Plaque. We chose to provide our son with a name plaque with the background of an eagle because of his love for animals, his country, and specifically the Eagle. However, there are many many background available for these plaques.
The name was researched and the meaning is printed below his name. The meaning for our son Leyton was found to be Old English and to mean:
From the Farming Town and and Lush Gardens: One Who Provides for the Health of Others
We thought this was fitting because he is very much one that provides and cares for others. He has a big heart, especially for animals, and thinks that the verse will serve him in his caring for animals.
The Bible verse that was provided to correspond with his name was John 10:10. I found the translation used was a little odd in my opinion, a little awkward to read, and I’m not entirely sure which translation was used, as I couldn’t find it when using BibleGateway; however, the verse is appropriate. I might have chosen a different translation however.
The verse is John 10:10 –
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
We also received a bookmark for Leyton as well, which he thought was pretty cool.
CrossTimber has a LOT of information on their website about Name Meanings as well as how they do their research and the Bible verses that have been hand-picked to go along with the meanings of the names. They state they primarily refer to the King James Versions of the Bible verses; however, that was not the version that was used in our case. They do state that they change the version if its is confusing or another translation is better. They also will truncate verses for space. This is obviously necessary when putting on small gifts and bookmarks.
The quality of the products was great. I was very happy with the print, the frame, and the bookmark. The company customer service when ordering was easy to talk to and responded quickly. I was very impressed. Overall we are very happy with the product we received and its quality.
