SEOUL, Nov. 17 (Yonhap) -- United States Amb. to South Korea Mark Lippert on Thursday announced the birth of his second child who was given a Korean middle name meaning "clean and hopeful."
"We are delighted to announce the arrival of our daughter who was born ... on Monday night. Everything went smoothly and both Mom and baby are happy, healthy and doing well," Lippert said in his blog (http://lippertsinkorea.blogspot.com).
Lippert introduced the baby girl's name as Caroline Saehee Lippert, with the two-syllable Korean name based on Chinese characters.
"The name Saehee means to live a clean and hopeful life," he said, citing a professional Korean name picker.
"Thank you so much for your support, and we look forward to sharing more about Saehee in the near future!" the ambassador said.
In January last year, Lippert also fathered William Sejun in Seoul, his first child who was also given a Korean middle name.
