Where did you get the idea to name your children or child what you did? Our Oldest, Greyson Merritt, was named that simply because we liked it, lol. Then we had Piper Gwendolyn. Gwendolyn was my grand mothers name. Christian David was named after My dad, who's name is David. Then, we had Landry Faith, a name that we both just like. (those are first and middle names.) What are your kids names and where did you get them?

My daughter's name is Inara Miriam. The name Inara comes from a TV show/movie my husband and I like, TV show Firefly, movie was Serenity. The name Miriam was my grandmother's middle name, but is what everyone used to call her.
Our cat is also named after a character from the sane show/movie, River.

My son, Henry Joseph, got Henry because I always loved that name and Joseph is after his god father. My daughter, Jenna, got her name because my hubby wanted it to be a j name and that's the one I fell in love with.

My oldest is biologically my brother but I named him. We were reading a book in school and the main characters' names were Conner and Jacob so I named him Conner Jacob.

My 10 month old daughter is name Tabitha Ashley. Tabitha was my grandmother's name ajd Ashley I just pulled out of the air.

Her twin brother is Wyatt James. Wyatt I got from Charmed and James I always liked.

And depending on if this one is a girl it will be after DH mother. If it is a boy......not sure yet.
