So, what’s in a name? Here’s my take on our only, precious girl.
Raelyn Michelle Miller (“Rae Rae”)
The first name, Raelyn, is one Jenn saw on TV and never forgot. We both like Raegan/Reagan but hated the President, so that was straight out.
Add to this the fact that Miller is pretty pedestrian and Raelyn was a clear winner.
Drawback: Some folks mess up the a/e order (Realyn) and still others go a little too phoenetic (Raylyn). Still, not bad for first-time parents. Go us!
Michelle is a nod to one of my favorite Beatles songs. Can you blame me?
We try to use “Rae Rae” or just “Rae” as a nickname, but the kid always refers to herself by ALL THREE NAMES and never anything foreshortened.
I’m not tagging anyone else, but this was fun. Thanks, Alecia!
