What is in a name?
When thinking of what to name your child the criteria for the perfect name seems like it could be endless. Every person I talk to seems to have different thoughts on what those criteria should be. I wish that I could write that for us it was different. I wish I could say that this was the perfect name and it just "came to us", but the truth is that picking a name for a wonderful person you have not met yet is not an easy process. There was much deliberation involved. Well, "how did this one win?" you might ask? We liked it...it matched our criteria....and when saying it out loud it was the only name that seemed right.
A little more history...
"Dayla" is Hebrew in origin. Not biblical...but a cool Hebrew name we stumbled across when looking up biblical names. It is not a common name that most people have ever heard. Yet it is easy to say when you read it and hopefully for most people, easy to spell.
Her middle name is my (Ginette's) middle name. My sister Suzanne told me when I first found out I was pregnant, that I was the 7th child in my family having the 7th grandchild. The coincidence does not stop there. The 7 grandchildren have gone in the exact same sex order as the 7 children. (so it was meant to be that our baby would be a girl!). Giving her my middle name just seemed like a neat way to pay homage to the Senasac family.
There you have it...no need to share if you don't like it...we already bought a stone and carved it in. :)
