  • The original spelling of my son's name is biblical but that's not really why I chose it. I liked it, and liked the alternate spelling I chose. His middle name is his Daddy's middle name.

  • My son is Simon Xavier. I just liked the name Simon and it has several Biblical references. Xavier is for my Uncle Francis. His middle name is Xavier.

    My daughter is Natalie Jean. I named her Natalie after my nephew Nathan who was born premature and passed away at 8wks old. Jean is after my Mom...Mary Jean.

  • My grandparents who pretty much raised me and who were also a very big part of me always called me Lily as I was growing up. I vowed that in honor of them I would name my 1st daughter Lily. Lucky hubby liked the name too and our first born is Lili Elisabeth(family name on my side)Danielle(her god-mother/hubbys cousin). Ds is named Dominic because its one of the few boys names we both liked Edgar(hubbys grandfather)Steven(hubbys name).
