    Ballerina Names

    Dance is a huge part of my life and something I would love to share with my daughters. My top name is Clara, which has obvious dance connections to the Nutcracker. What other names can you think of with a dance connection (it doesn't have to be ballet)? What names conjure up the image of a little ballerina, or dancer for you?

    Feel free to ask me anything about saints names
