I have always been curious when I hear a child’s name as to whether or not there is a story behind it, if they were named after someone and/or how their parents came to choose that name.
I have a little girl called Cassandra Riley, she is named after one of my best friends and the other two chose her middle name as we didn’t like the sounds of their 3 names altogether. Naming them after my friends started as a joke, my husband is one of 6 boys, his brother has had 2 boys, over 80% of his family is male I think so when we talked about children my husband said we are going to have a boy but if we have a girl I’ll let you name her anything you want, I’ll even let you name her after the girls (I had spoken how I loved the name Cassandra) if you wanted. He was so convinced and his family too that we would have a boy right up until the ultrasound but I always knew ^_^.
If you have a story or even if you didn’t and would just like to share the name you chose I’d love to hear it (you can also tell the story without the name as well =) )
