Does the meaning of your kids name match them/their personality?

Aylie (Aili) - the Finnish variant of Helen which means light. She's definitely a bright light in our lives, though her features aren't as light as her sisters.

Layla - dark beauty/night. She's quite fair and was born in the afternoon. Apparently my girls should've switched names (Aylie has darker features and was born at night!).

Rhett - means the speaker. He's only 4.5 months but the kid babbles like none other, so accurate so far!

Luke means "from Lucania" so no it really doesn't match.

Lauren means "from Laurentum" so it doesn't match either. It can also mean Laurel, which doesn't work either.

My kids' name don't have very interesting meanings.

lol... Seamus means "supplanter". It's the Irish form of James. I'm not sure what "supplanter" means, so I looked it up:

  /səˈplænt, -ˈplɑnt/
–verb (used with object)
1. to take the place of (another), as through force, scheming, strategy, or the like.
2. to replace (one thing) by something else.

lol, I don't think that's a word I'd use to describe him.


Conan and Rhiannon (names for this bean when we find out what we're having), have nicer meanings. Conan means "little hound" or "little wolf" (maybe he'll like dogs or wolves? lol), Rhiannon comes from the old Celtic name Rigantona, which means "great queen". She's the Welsh goddess of fertility and the moon. Not sure if our daughter will fit that until she's grown though, lol. THOUGH, the goddess Rhiannon is known to ride a white horse, so maybe our daughter will like horses? Who knows, lol.

Gabrielle - God is my strength

... I don't really pay any attention to this meaning, because we aren't religious & I don't believe in god..... But she is a strong kiddo!
