We didn't tell the name before because we knew it was different. Sometimes people will look confused or call her Hannah or Joanna and we will correct them. I would say 9 out of 10 people who hear the name comment how much they love it. Congrats on your baby girl!

Sarah Says:


Hi Elizabeth! My husband and I both love this name but everyone who hears it gets a weird look on their face. Did you have many people who didn't like it before your daughter was born? Did they just get over it? But most strangers like it?
