Merritt BS: Names we used to hear (57* d) RE: BS: Names we used to hear 15 May 03

How to name children is one of those things I wasn't taught growing up.

We named our 3 kids Elena, Abram and Lilah Rebecca. With the first two we were trying mostly for variants of family names - Helen brainstormed into Elena (pronounced as in Spanish) and Abraham become Abram, an older variant (we think) of Abraham. Lilah from "night" or "dark one" in Arabic because of her dark eyes and hair, and then Rebecca for her aunt. Daycare when they were young was just a sea of Michaels, Matthews, Amandas and Stephanies.
