name that means wanted/ longed for/ awaited etc....

After trying for this bub for 8 or so years i want something that will reflect the above title so i can tell LO when they ask about there name.

Any suggestions?!
I so far have Saul for a boy which means asked for but we don't like it as a first name (no offense to anyone who's bub/ hubby/ father/ brother etc... is called Saul)

I don't mind an unusual name & currently we don't know the sex so a mix of both would be good

I think Miriam "wished for child" (nn Mimi, Mira, Miri) or Evelyn "wished for child" (nn Evie) would be perfect!
