Gail and Zoe Mabalane
In case you didn’t know, there’s a really special meaning behind Zoe’s name. Gail explained this in an interview with Living and Loving.
She said: “We believe that we become what we think of ourselves and what we think of ourselves really starts with a name. Many people are affected by the names they were called in school, for example, so we wanted to choose a name that would bring light into our lives and our daughter’s life every day.
“The name Zoe means the abundant life. This is the life God intended and desires for us to have as his children. Zoe’s second name is Leano, which means plan. So, her full name means: “The abundant life is God’s plan”. How beautiful is that?
