John’s sister-in-law revealed that Nathaniel means “gift of God.”

Sarah also explained the meaning behind Wilberforce, referred to as the “bright fortress.”

The newborn baby is “named for William Wilberforce, who fought for justice and truth and saw the abolition of slavery in his day (and in recognition of the fall of Roe v Wade).”

In one of the photos, Nathaniel slept in his mother’s arms while he posed with the rest of his family.

She captioned the post, “I could watch little babies sleep all day.”

Sarah is married to John-Clay and has three sons: Eric (seven), Samuel (six) and Joseph (four).

Abbie, 30, is married to John-David, 32.

A fourth reviewer added, “Wilberforce equals Wilbermass times Wilberacceleration.”
