Ogie and Regine Velasquez-Alcasid's Baby Nate

The world welcomes Nathaniel James “Nate” Alcasid last 8th of November, 2011. The happy couple Ogie and Regine Velasquez-Alcasid brings home the joyous baby boy last November 18.

The songwriter and songbird are as hands-on as can be with their first-born. Of course, they have waited almost a lifetime to have this moment.

Rumors has it that the baby will be named Herminio Jr. According to Ogie himself, there's nothing wrong if they will use such a name, though he admits with a smile that it is not applicable nowadays. 

When we search the name Nathaniel, this is what the books are telling. Nathaniel \n(a)-tha-niel\ as a boy's name is pronounced na-THAN-yel. It is of Hebrew origin, and the meaning of Nathaniel is "God has given". Biblical: one of the 12 apostles, who was also called Bartholomew. Used by the Puritans. Author Nathaniel Hawthorne; musician Nat "King" Cole.

Nathaniel has 15 variant forms: Nat, Natanael, Nataniel, Nate, Nathan, Nathanael, Nathaneal, Nathanial, Nathanyal, Nathanyel, Natty, Nethanel, Nethaniel, Nethanyel and Thaniel.

James \j(a)-mes\ on the other hand  as a boy's name (also used as girl's name James), is pronounced jayms. It is of Hebrew origin, and the meaning of James is "he who supplants". From Late Latin Iacomus, a variant of Iacobus, Latin form of Greek Iakobos and New Testament Greek form of the Old Testament form Jacob (Hebrew Yaakov). Biblical: one of the 12 apostles of Jesus, who possibly was also a cousin of Jesus. The King James Bible is named in reference to James I of England (16th-17th century). Spanish pronunciation of Jaime: (HYE-may), Scottish: (JAY-mee). See also Kimo and Santiago. A famous fictional character with this name is the British spy James Bond, created by author Ian Fleming. Writer James Joyce; actors James Mason, James Caviezel, James Gandolfini, Jimmy Stewart; entertainer Jimmy Durante; American Presidents Hames Buchanan, James Garfield, James Madison, James Polk, Jimmy Carter, James Monroe.

According to Ogie, “Baby Nate has no yaya. He has no nursery and just rooms in with us”.

Regine have undergone a Cesarean operation. Until she recovers, she needs her midwife to attend to her needs.

“Regine is breastfeeding the baby,” says Ogie, who has written the song “Aking Anak” for his first son.

The couple has decided to share their joy over Baby Nate’s birth to less-fortunate children during his early stage of life. Ogie and Regine turned over three new classrooms to Adiangao, Camarines Sur last Nov.11.  The building was funded from the proceeds of Ogie and Regine’s highly successful Celebrity Ukay-Ukay last April.

In behalf of Zurcaled World, we welcomes Baby Nate.
