My little girl will be 2 next month, and recenlty I've started calling her by her full name when she's up to no good...in my best stern voice :D Well...anyway, people have just started noticing she has a middle name, it never seemed to come up when she was born, we were both very ill when she was born so people didn't make such a fuss over things like names...
...well her name is Layla Autumn & EVERYONE questions her middle name. So, here goes:
Layla came from the song Layla. My partner & I are both massive Eric Clapton fans & we thought the name was beautiful & you don't hear it too often, so we called her Layla.
Autumn came from when we were picking baby names...we couldn't agree on anything for ages, he liked Rose, I liked Summer...I said Rose was too old fashioned, he said Summer was too common (common as in popular, not trashy!) so I said, well if not Summer let's have Autumn then. And it stuck...plus she was born in September so it just seemed perfect :D
Has anyone else got a story to their kids name? Or do does anyone ever have to explain their kids name?
