Our son's name is Gavin. We liked it because it's not your everyday normal name, yet it's not a crazy name either. People really like his name when they hear it.

Being my first pregnancy, choosing a name for a child was hard and often my husband and I would becker over the name. I wanted something unique and well he...he wanted a John. After months to choose a name Delivery Day came and so did the finaly decision on the baby's name. After changing my son's name twice and giving the medical records a hard time, I pulled out the Baby Name Book closed my eyes and pointed to the first name that appeared. God must of spared a huge ordeal for us, cause the medical records lady was flustred by now, and I announced the name Gavin, but spelled it Gavynn. To my surprise we both loved it. Today Gavynn Tyler is 4 years old and beautiful as can be, I wouldn't change his name for the world.
