(Note: I am NOT pregnant, nor are we trying yet. This post is stemming from just a random conversation with Johnny)
I don’t remember how it came up, but somehow a name that I suggested when I was pregnant with Roey popped into our conversation.
I loved the name. I thought it was cool and I’d never heard of it before. (I didn’t check the meaning)
John nixed the name immediately when I brought it up, but now he says he likes it – go figure – but for a girl.
Somehow we started a baby name conversation, and Caia or Caya or Cahya came into play for our next child…if it’s a girl. (cross your fingers for me) I looked up Caya and couldn’t find anything on it’s meaning except when spelled Cahya which is a boy’s name for “Light” in Indonesian.
I started looking up other girl names that I liked and really loved Malia, but would never name my daughter that because it begins with Mal which means bad. There are a few names John and I liked before settling on Rohan but we had to nix them because of the meaning. We wanted something strong or that resonated well with us.
Rohan means “to ascend” in sanskrit and we loved the meaning and that the name was so old.
We want our next child’s name to have a meaning we love as well.
Does the meaning of a name matter to you?
As I was searching for the “hi my name is” image at the top of this post, I found this pic:
Which then reminded me of this song:
That I’m so loving these days…..and John even likes it too (he won’t admit it though)
