Trinity Leila is my daughters name. Trinity after the movie the Matrix and Leila means dark beauty and I'm Native American so my daughter has dark hair and eyes.

If we had had a boy his name would have been Aniken after Star Wars and hunter as a middle name as both my hubby and I bowhunt.

My first child was going to be named and was after my husband.  If it was a girl, her name was going to be Richelle, nicknamed "Rikki."  My first-born is a boy so he is named Richard, nicknamed Ricky.  When he got married and they had their first child, there was no question about it, since it was a girl she is named Richelle, nicknamed "Chelle."  My second child was named after my father who had already passed away when my first was only 6 months old and so his name is Joseph (Joey).  In Lewiston, NY, not far from Buffalo where we live, is The Fatima Shrine, dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima.  Every year we visit at least once.  When the kids were small, we took them; now I go with a special group of friends.  There are statues of every saint and a fountain with lights in the form of the rosary.  I was pregnant with my third while we visited the shrine one summer.  I really felt like I was going to have "my three sons" and we didn't have a name picked out.  One of the first statues is of Saint Matthew and so my third son was named Matthew. I thought I was finished having children, but I got pregnant once more, but miscarried.  Dealing with the loss was hard, but I was prepared to be content with "my three sons" and then I got pregnant for my daughter.  During my pregnancy, one of our nieces was making her First Holy Communion and we, of course, attended the mass.  The priest called out for a "Lindsay" to come forward and that's when I decided to name my one and only daughter, Lindsay; it sounded beautiful at such a wonderful occasion. 

P.S.  Sorry so long!

We wanted a name that was easily pronounced but was able to work in my husband's country and mine. We also knew we wanted an "A" name for the first name. Aleena works and was cute and no one has mispronounced it yet :)
