    And also a last name ๐Ÿ™‚

    For Unusual names my Daughter has a very Unusual and Unique name.
    Due to her misinterpretation in her Gender my Mom put Together
    Khansdyn-Lehualani. Pronounced CA-NS-DEN LAY-HUA-LA-KNEE.
    Lehualanis kind of common but khansdyn is just letters from family
    Memebers names put together. Just a thought ๐Ÿ™‚
