It's always tricky finding the right baby name for your soon-to-be-angel-on-earth, isn't it? You don't want something everyone else has, yet you don't want something too bizarre, you don't want them to be made fun of (like "Sandy Beach" or "Candy Cane" -- no joke, I actually know people with these names!), & you don't want people mispronouncing or misspelling it all the time.
