 I love to hear everyone's baby names and some of their special meanings or the story behind how they were named. For example, my brother Michael was so named because he flipped around in the womb and sent my mom into early labor, saving his twin's life since the cord was wrapped around Matthew's neck. When the doc told my daddy that, he started singing, "Brother lend a helping hand..." and so Michael was named.

My girls are Daisy and Lily because they're family names. I picked Daisy after my aunt and my husband picked Lily because of his grandmother and my other aunt.

So, what are your kids' names? Who picked them out and why?

Mira - I thought I made this name up out of mirror but turns out its actually a name lol

Justin - I came up with this one too, ONLY had girl names and the favorite was Morgan, well he wasnt a girl so Justin. Justin Morgan was the man who developed the Morgan horse breed.

Kara Zorel - I actually named off Kara to the hubby while searching through names, I like it but got no response so didnt write it down. Then he remembers Kara is Supergirl's name(Zo'rel being her Krypton or w/e name) So.. Kara Zorel :)

thats very nice, we actually had the biggest issue naming my son because we could only come up with A names and we didnt want my daughter to be the odd man out because my ex and I have A names.

Quoting sleepy_in_va: Emmalee Jeanne(pronounced jean)- lee and jeanne are family names. Hubby and I both picked that one.

Elijah Robert - Robert is my deceased dads first name. I came up with this nams after being set on Noah as jis first name.
