I had to do a super search to find Kaija and Kolbie

Kaija means "Pure" in Greek, Estonian and Finnish. It is also a variation of Gaia which is Greek for "Earth". Jane means "God is gracious". Neither name rank in either 2010 or 2008.

Kolbie means "Coalworker; coal village" Elizabeth is "My God is a vow". Elizabeth ranks at #25 for 2010. Kolbie also doesn't rank.

I like that we unintentionally included God in their middle names. Jane was DH's grandma and Elizabeth is my middle name.

What do your childrens names mean? There is no site that has my girls names except Kaiah but it is Kaia

"Karrara Kali" Karrara is a name Matt loved so we named her that it has no definite meaning, Kali is a goddess

"Kaiah Tara" I loved Kaia but I felt the name needed the H at the end "Kaia" is a Greek name meaning "earth" and Tara is a goddess

"Kayda Maya" Kayda again has no meaning to it I just put the name together Maya is again a goddess (=



Where do they fall on last year's top names and the year they were born? ha I bet there is only a handful of people that have there names

Liliana means Gracious lily, purity, and beauty. It isn't ranked but Lily was #7 in 2010. Josephine means God will increase. Again not ranked.

Abrielle has no meaning according to the JM search, but our name book says it means open, secure, protected. Not ranked. Georgiana is the feminine form of George which means farmer. Also not ranked.

For us we chose the girls' middle names because they were the names of influential women in European history. Josephine was Napolean's wife. Georgiana was the Duchess of Devonshire and from the Spencer family (Princess Diana's family).

Peter - Latin origin meaning rock/stone. Not on the list for 2010. It's a family name and both DH and FILs first name.
Aidan - Irish/Gaelic origin meaning help/little fire. Not on the list for 2010, but the -en spelling is #1. In 2000, it was #99 with the -en spelling not showing up at all. In 2004 it was #2 on the list and -en not showing up at all. Interesting, so somewhere between 2004 and 2006 the trend to change the spelling to -en kicked in. I think it's the more americanized spelling.
