Leilani's name and middle name is very dear to me. I picked her names out by their meanings. Leilani means child of Heaven: Heavenly blossom, Chessa means at peace, Anne means He has favored me. Leilani reminds me that she is a child of Heaven and belongs there. I know Chessa isn't very pretty but to me it gives me some kind of hope that she is at peace. Anne let's me know God has favored her and spared her from this cruel world.

Julianna's middle name comes from my close friend who had passed the day before she was born. Also the song Jolene, I was just lucky it went together.


Well with my first two children the middle names already were picked out because they are named after someone, first and middle name. With Kailani, Vanessa comes from my cousin. Whom I've been looking for, for ten years. It was a promise when I found her my child would have her name. That's the story of how my children's middle name's came to be.
