Hey Rachel! (Gemma Hudson's my sister - asking the question on behalf of me, btw).
Wow! If the name came to you in a dream, then that's a meaningful sign I think :)
My hubby and I had our first date at a restaurant in a hotel called Rydges Plaza, so I like the name for nostalgic reasons... but... we'd want to have my hubby's first name as his middle, and it just doesn't fit. So will have to choose a different first name.
I like Ridge Jaxon, Ridge Alexander, Ridge Samson, Ridge Jacob and Ridge Austin.
I also like the nn Ry :)
