How did you all arrive on the name for your LO? Any family names or special meanings?

DD's name comes from the Longfellow poem "The Children's Hour" Here is a recitation:

Longfellow Reads Longfellow: The Children's Hour - YouTube

It is about Longfellow's eternal love for his children. In the full version of the poem he mentions "the Bishop of Bingen in his mouse tower on the Rhine". Bingen is not far from where we live and we thought it fitting that an American poet mentioned the area where we live in his poem about the children he loved. Also, Longfellow is probably my favorite poet and this is one of my favorite poems.

Her middle name is after a relative on my side.
