  • I volunteered at a wolf place and one of the wolves was named Keeley. I loved that name and DH and I decided to give our next dog that name. Then, at one point, I was watching Phil of the Future and there was a character on there named Keely and I was shocked thinking it could actually be a person name.

    From that point on...I fell more and more in love with the name. So DD got it and we have never regretted it.

  • My son is named after my husband and father in law. If we are ever blessed with a little girl, she will be named after me and my husband's grandma.

  • Aaron Hans Karl - Aaron came from a joke my husband made about wanting to name our child Arayan (just a joke really, because he's German), Hans Karl were my father-in-law's middle names. He died 3 weeks before my son was born.
