  • Hmmm, I never gave the name Zachary a thought when I was really young and picking out names for my kids when I got older lol. Then one time hub and I were at a club and Zak Wylde was there, guitarist for Ozzy, and he was up on stage jamming with the band and he turned around and he had the nicest ASS in levis. I thought to myself "Zaky Wylde has a nice ASS...Hmmm...Zak, Zachary, what a nice name" and that is my son lol. My girlfriends came up with Mackenna for my daughter

  • My oldest daughter's name, Schylar, came from that old Soap Opera that used to be on called Santa Barbara. 16 years ago there were no Skylars like there are now and I also gave it a unique spelling.

    My middle daughter's name, Avalon, came from the legend of King Arthur which I've always loved.

    My son's name, Owen, also came from King Arthur, although it was spelled Owain back then.

  • I used to watch young and the restless as a teenager and liked the name Ashley, but I spelled my daughters name ASHLEA because my moms middle name is Lea ( sounds the same as lee) and then she has my middle name, Dawn. My son is Jace Gideon. I liked the name chase but my hubby didnt. Hubby is Joel so he said how about removing the Ch and putting a J...... I thought is was cool. Gideon was just a name liked since I was little. We liked it because his initials would be JG like Jerry Garcia........
