About Owen


What’s in a Name?

James Owen Tweedt is named in honor of Brian’s Grandfather, James Elmer Tweedt, a self-made man who’s love for his wife and entire family is an inspiration to all.  James Owen is the first male Tweedt born in 30 years (Brian was the last), and will carry on the Tweedt name for another generation.

James is also Brian’s middle name (Brian James Tweedt), Brian’s Dad’s middle name (Terry James Tweedt), Brian’s Maternal Great-Grandfather, James A. Baggs (and his son Jim),  and Jeff Anderson’s oldest brother and Kim’s Godfather (James R. Anderson).

With all of the “James” names, family gatherings could become quite confusing.  So we will be calling James Owen Tweedt simply “Owen.”

The name “Owen”

was originally suggested to Brian by HGTV’s “Over Your Head” celebrity host, Eric Stromer.  Kim & Brian couldn’t get the name out of their heads!  Thanks Eric!

In addition, Owen’s initials of “J.O.” are also in tribute to Kim’s Grandfather, John Oscar Jenkins, a great renaissance man who left a lasting impression on everyone he met.

And for you name statisticians out there, “Owen” and “Savannah” both ranked #37 on the top 100 most popular names of 2006.  It must be fate.
