As for the name, they settled on Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin, and there's an enduring reason behind the title. Isaac was Graham's idea, something that he was always sure of. Explaining his motive in Ashley's Pretty Big Deal podcast, Ervin said,
My sister Kia and I would have discussions about, 'Oh, one day, when we have kids. I brainstormed my own name for my future son, and I knew it was gonna be Isaac.
Menelik, meaning 'son of the wise' in African, was a little souvenir that the twosome picked-up on from a trip to Ethiopia. Whereas Giovanni came as a suggestion from a friend and also reflected the names of his and Graham's grandfathers, who were both named John, the English equivalent of that name.
