    I am obsessed with baby names. And coming up with that perfect name is not easy–but it is fun! When I was looking for a name for my fourth child, I wanted something that was unusual, but not totally out there. I wanted it to have something special about it. When I came across the name, before we knew the gender, I was set, and I declared that it would be this child's name, whether it was a boy or girl.

    When choosing names, I like to read everything about the name. I check out the meanings, the origin, the popularity, and I even Google other people with the same name. I want something that just hits me. I want it to fit with us as a family. And, after all, it's something both my child and I will have to live with for a lifetime.

    I’m a more traditional mom. We chose names from our families and refuse to use nicknames or shorten our children’s names unless they choose to. However, to each their own!
