Kedesha Williams and Orville Anderson have named their second child Argentina Marley Anderson.

Baby Argentina was born at the Mandeville Hospital on October 16, 2018.

"Her mom says she don't want a common name for the baby and she was a fan of Argentina," Orville said.

"She is always calling the name, and the name sounds sweet from the mouth so she just say, 'yuh know what, I am going to name the baby Argentina'."

The child's middle name came about as a result of her parents' admiration for Bob Marley's music.

"We are always listening to Bob Marley and we know that every lyric is conscious," the father added.

The baby was christened on April 7 at the Sanguinetti New Testament Church of God in Clarendon.

"Parents, grandparents and godparents all have a responsibility to ensure that their children grow up in the fear of God," said Bishop Donald Dawson, as he presided over the christening ceremony.

"We have reached the stage where children are not being corrected whenever they do anything wrong. Most of the indiscipline in the schools is as a result of children lacking individual training in the home," he said.

"It starts from the home. Sometimes when children go to school it appears as if many of them do not have any parents. When some of them return home from school they have to take care of their siblings. Where are the parents? Some parents leave their children on their own, locked up in the house and go to dance."

Dawson said that if the society is to be better, residents will have to go back to the foundation of good Christian teachings and principles in the home. The pastor instructed the parents to, among other things, provide a Christian home and a godly environment for the baby, and seek to lead her in the love of God.

During his prayer for the baby, Dawson called on God to cover her under the blood of Jesus, bind every force that is not His, and protect her from every evil spirits.

"I pray God that you will cut every grandfather and grandmother curse. I ask that you will rest your hands upon her and allow your deliverance power to be upon her. Protect her in the basic school, the primary school, high school, college and university, so that she will be what you want her to be in life," prayed Dawson.
