Nieves Blanca Dufurrena

The word “nieves” is Spanish for snow (or, of the snow, in some translations), and also was the name of Sean’s paternal grandmother – Nieves Inez Legarza Dufurrena.

We are giving our daughter the name Nieves in honor of Sean’s family and Basque heritage, as well as Leigh Ann’s late-grandmother, Doris Lear Underwood.

Here is the trailer for the 2013 film “Blancanieves” – the Snow White of Spain. It’s a beautiful silent film that tells the classic fairytale with a few twists.
