hello my name isThe expectation of a new baby is a time full of anticipation and excitement.

It's a time for new responsibilities, new gadgets, and a whole new person entering your life. Gracing your little girl with a name is a big decision.

It’s fun to explore a wide variety of possibilities from trendy to biblical -- romantic to gender-bending.
