  • My DD is Abigail Devi....Abigail was the only name that DH and I could agree on but Devi is special. I wanted a D name for my brother Darrell who passed away and Devi means "Resides in Heaven" which was a perfect tribute in my eyes.

  • Well my first son is a JR. (Daniel). It's what daddy wanted. I also like that it's a Biblical name. My second son is Seth. I just wanted something different and another Biblical name. My last is Olivia, I had this name picked out since I was pregnant with Daniel. I did however try to look for another Biblical name and I didn't like them so I just stuck with my Olivia.

  • Brayden Manning

    I really wanted to use Tristan but my husband could not say it. So I started looking in the baby name books and when I saw the name Brayden I knew that was the name for my soon-to-be-here son. Manning is my maiden name.

  • My DH & I could not agree on ANY name at all! He wanted Korey & I wanted Kayson. So we did what any normal POOR couple would do! lol & we went to Barnes & Noble with paper and pens and wrote down 10 names we LOVED & the ONLY one we both wrote down was Aiden. So we had a first name and my husbands middle name is Russell, which is his dads and his grandfathers name so we decided on Aiden Russell!

  • My son's name is Aiden Grant. I really loved this name. We went through book after book and my fiance didn't want to name him after anybody we knew. This was the only name we could agree on. Now everyone we meet knows someone named Aiden.

  • Mica Elijah was named after two of my friends, Miette Elise was named after the main character in the movie City Of Lost Children (Miette) and my biological mother (Elise), Elliot Elizabeth was named because I had to name her to leave the hospital lol... and I was watching a lot of Scrubs at the time. Elliot is the name of the "pretty blonde doctor" and one of my very good friends is named Elizabeth. I'm currently pregnant, and my youngest daughters name will be October, because I really love the sound of the name, and I adore the nickname Toby.
