  • 8 years ago we were looking for something different but not to different. We chose Michaela, I loved it and it was seldom heard. Seems like the day I came home from the hospital it was every other name I heard lol.

  • well, her middle name is my grandmother's name. her first name we were sitting around the thankgiving table and we were just talking about the elections (2008) and Sarah Palin name came up. i did not dislike the name Sarah and its not really used so I liked that fact. I had one name picked out from the beginning and noone liked it. then another one and noone liked it so everyone loved Sarah and that is what i named her. But also i love Sarah Jessica Parker so she is named after her too. its short name and it goes with the middle name and is short enough because i have a long last name.

  • My daughter was named after an actress (Scarlett Pomers) and a character from the soap opera Days of Our Lives (Abigail). I named her those names because I loved the name, not because of the character or actress. My daughter's name is Scarlett Abigail.
