Well I named my son Lewis because when I was a child there was a man on t.v with this name and he was so swarve and handsome! Throughout the rest of my young life I never met a single other person with that name (I’m from England) untill my grandmothers neighbour had a little boy and named him that. He was ixed race with curly black hair and the most gorgeous brown eyes full of lashes! Then as he got older he grew more and more handsome. By the time he was 18 he could easily have been a male model/film star! So when I became pregnant there was no other option for me. I had some negative comments at first but I ignored them and I’m glad I did! Ironically, about 2 years after I’d named my son Lewis, it became the 4th or 5th most popular boys name in the UK! And there was me thinking I’d named him something unusual! Still love the name every time I say it and I’m more than satisfied with my choice! By the way, my son ended up with the gorgeous brown eyes, tanned skin and dark hair, much like the people who inspired me!

Well, my 3 daughters all got their names in a certain way.
First, I made a long list of my favorite family names. Then, I took an event that happened recently and changed into a name. last I chose a name I liked as a first name. For example:
My first daughter- Sofia (chosen name) Heather (family name) Avenue (I had a road trip from my home in Texas to Los Angeles right before I got pregnant)

Second daughter- Madelyn (chosen name) Angela (family name) Bear (I went to the zoo during my pregnancy and she kicked my for the first time when we were at the bear exhibit.
Third daughters name-
Amber (chosen name) Theresa (family name) Princess (I went to London, England right before I got pregnant)

Sofia Heather Avenue
Madelyn Angela Bear
Amber Theresa Princess

I was supposed to be named Savannah (after the city in GA) after my daddy went there and loved it but sadly my mother didn’t like it and I was named Meghan after family members Margaret & Marge.

My name is Mona Abigail. My first name was suppose to be Emily (glad it wasn’t 3 other Emily’s were in my class) till my mother heard this on tv. Abigail comes from my grandmothers name which is Gail.
1rst child- Ava Katherine
My husband and I loved Ava and Katherine came from my great grandmother. Unfortunately Ava passed away at age 3 (6 years ago).
2nd child- Jack Christopher (5)
Ava loved children and told me about what she would name her first children. She loved the name Jackson Christopher, so we honored her by naming our son Jack Christopher.

3rd child- Grace Caroline (2)
Grace came from my nana’s mn. Caroline is my mother in laws name.
