    My dad knew a little girl with my name, I believe it was a daughter of a coworker, and my mom liked it too so it was my name long before I was born. They gave me a filler middle name just because it flowed well.
    Current faves:

    Melanie Anne, Caroline Olivia, William Gregory, Benjamin Patrick

    Surely they must've spun it a couple of times? I mean, India and Aspen are some of the more common place names. If not, I wonder what they would have done had their fingers landed on Middelfart, Denmark or Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch, Wales.

    Yeah, they just spun until they got ones that worked with their last name and was easy to pronounce.

My mom said if she had know how popular it was they would've chose something different. Willow was #853.
    I've had Willow Jean as a possible option for a few years now. Though I'm starting to move away from Willow as a first name, Jean remains an option for the middle spot. It's also a family name for me, my Grandmother's name was Jean and then it became my sister's middle name. Also, my name is Hannah! Lol..just thought this was too weird.

    My parents decided to wait until I was born to find out my sex. If I was a boy I would have been Jonathan/Eric Robert. But since I was a girl they had to go back to the drawing board . My dad picked the name Rebecca because he liked it. The other option would have been Ashley. Thank goodness my name is Rebecca! My middle name is Lynn after his sister who is my godmother.
