  • Karia--I was in high school then and was looking through our yearbook. It was the name of one of the seniors graduating and I really liked it.

    Gavin--I love Gavin Degraw and it's short and simple.

    Kayla--Hebrew orgin and name of an old friend I missed.

    Lydia--1st name I heard that I didn't immediately hate. Didn't think about a girl's name, thought I was having a boy.

  • My husband and I talked about names early when we were dating - we chose the name we had always "dreamed" of. She has 2 middle names - one that is a family name in both our families, one was chosen by her birthmom (she's adopted)

  • we didn't have a name for a girl and didn't know the sex of the baby. we went through thousands of girl names that we just didn't love. my husband looked at our baby girl in the hospital crib and said what about ashlyn which was one of the names we considered. i agreed and it really suits her. almost like god told my husband that is what her name should be. ashlyn rose pratt. i love it.
