Hello, I am fairly new here and I always wonder how people come up with their baby's names. For instance, my daughter's name is Nadia Kathleen. Nadia means hope and after dealing infertility for 6 years (IVF baby), she was our hope. Kathleen is after my husband's grandmother. So, how did you pick your baby's names?

My daughter's name is Claire Noelle. We got the name Claire from the tv show Heros. We liked the nickname Claire-Bear. I thought of Noelle while they were getting me ready for the c-section. I just thought it was appropriate since she was born on Christmas Day!!

Abdullah means "servant of God" in Arabic. My husand is Egyptian, I am American, and we are both Islam there is a famous saying that states that the name Abdullah is the best name for male children. We call him "Aboudi" which is the common nickname for the name Abdullah.

My daughter is Lyla Doll Thomas. We had 2 girls names already picked out, when I misheard my husband in the car one day. I thought he said Lyla. He said no, and started laughing at me. Then I said that it was a pretty name, and he agreed. Doll is my maiden name, and it is really cute! After we decided on Lyla, we came to find out that it was the name of my husband's great-grandmother. How cool is that?

My sons name, Joseph Arthur, just popped into my head one day well before my partner and I even thought about having kids but then we started saying what a cute name Joey would be and goofy things like that. But the name stuck around until we had our little boy! Now the reality is Joseph Arthur is my partners dad's name, Arthur is my dad and brother, Joseph is also both our grandfather's names so it really had to be!
Funny note - we didn't know the sex beforehand so the two names we had picked were Joseph and Sarah - who would have thought they'd be our VP picks.
