Jillian Harris Baby Names




Jillian Harris

A Complete List of Our Favourite Baby Names

Over the last few weeks I’ve had a few people messaging me to see if I would share our list of favourite baby names! At first I hesitated as I wanted to keep the list private juuuuuust in case we had another but after some more thought, I think it’s safe to say that our little family is complete and I don’t THINK Justin and I will be trying for a third!

So, with that being said … I’m sharing my list of favourite boys and girls names with you below!!! You’ll notice that some names are on BOTH lists simply because I loved them for both genders!!

Ps. If you want to take a trip back in time, check out Leo’s Birth Story, here, or, Annie’s Birth Story, here!!! Also, if you’re about to be a new parent and need a little extra help, check out the books below for some more inspo!

  1. Anna says:

    I recently heard the name Ellison and fell in love!! Or William because it’s a classic and how cute would a little boy with glasses be with the name William?? Xoxo

  2. Kelly says:

    Dalainey, Addyson, Kenadee and Brystol for Girl

    Hudson for boy

  3. Meaghan says:

    We named our daughter Austyn – we love it but have definitely had mixed feelings from others. A lot of other names we liked are on your list though!

    • Jeannie says:

      Back in the day (lol) when my children were born, we picked the popular names of Ashley and Christopher. Now they both have their own little ones and I love their names….James, Holden, Emma and Camden. Camden can be a boy or girl. Our’s is a little boy. I also love the name Sarah. It is a classic and was my grandmothers name. I love all the names on your list. Never say never!! 🙂

    • Sonja Moore says:

      Our daughter’s name is Elida Lexi named after her two maternal great-grandmothers.

    • Austin says:

      My name is Austin (girl) and I have always loved that there were never any like me! I had a few kids growing up that teased me for having a boy name but for the most part it was all good reviews.

      My daughter’s name is Paige Austin 🙂

    • Chelsea says:

      My boys are Finn Wilder and Van Davy!

    • Ruth Clemence says:

      We named our little girl Ivy Brooklyn and my little boy Fox Kingston.

    • Vanessa says:

      We named our twins Penelope and Oliver and my oldest is Valentina. I love them all. If I had another boy it would be Theodore and Teddy for short.

    • Christine says:

      My son’s middle name is Emerson, which I love. He is named for his grandfather and I think it would be a lovely name for a girl too.

    • Amy says:

      My Daughter is Georgia and it’s my very favorite name obviously !
      I also love Beatrice for a girl?
      Theodore ( Theo for a boy)?

    • AC says:

      My daughter’s name is Hudson Rose. 10 years old and bold. When ppl meet “her” / her hear the name ~it’s LOVE. We had the mix feelings while expecting her. My advice for mamas/papas to be- Do you! be happy! Everyone else will jump on boar. The people grow to their name❤️

    • Kristen says:

      Love these ! We named our son Beckett and daughter Willa – but had a few of the ones you listed on our list. We loved Elodie, Maeve, Lily, Rowen and Isla for a girl and Foster, Nash, Niall and Bodhi for a boy

    • Amanda says:

      Annie Rose was on my list if we had a third but, safe to say with a 11 year old and 9 year old now….that isn’t happening! I still have my list though! It makes me smile – it is such a special thing to name someone!

    • Ashley says:

      We also had lots of names on our list that could be either a boy or a girl name! Ended up having a boy, and naming him Keean! ?

    • Austin says:

      Hi Meaghan – My name is Austin and I am a girl! My parents constantly got questioned, and people always think I’m a boy over email and I’ve heard a lot of rude jokes, buuuut I love my name and love hearing of other girls with my name (I have only ever met one other)! So good pick!! 🙂

    • L says:

      Girl: Sass, Élodie, Valérie, Renée, Margo, Alexi, Madelyn
      Boy: Wilson, David, Xavier, Theodore, Flash

    • Danielle says:

      We named our sons Kydon Max Power, and Xander Teague Franklin.

      Ezra, Colston, and Jude were on our boy list

      Aylah, Lennon, Noah and Elliot were on our girl list!!

    • Pj says:

      We live in Finland so there is so different names in here, BUT some names are international ones. But I have 2 sons and they both have really Finnish names. But when I was pregnant and thinking about babynames I do think intrrnational names as well and in our list there was Oliver, Teo (or Theo), Oscar and Eliel (last one I think is Finnish name but I think it goes…)

      If I had a daughter her name would be Anni. Like Annie but no -e. Anni Elisabeth. Elisabeth was my grandmothers name, but she was called Liisa (with two ii’s, in Finland we pronaunced names like you write it)

    • Steph says:

      We have an Austyn too!!!

    • We have a Vivienne Josephine and an Ashton David, aka Viv and Ash ?

    • Sarah says:

      ? Ireland ?. Would you pronounce it like the country Ireland? I love love love it!

      Your girls name are so sweet as well, seem to be a mix between traditional and Unique names. My favourite for a baby girl is Adaline❤️. If I had a girl she was going to be Adaline. No more kids for me so I would love to see the name used.

    • Jayci says:

      My daughter is also Austyn, she’s 5. ❤️ We call her Aussy hehe! We also have a daughter named Lucca who’s 1.

      Boys- Sean, Rae, Roman, Liam, Michael, Daniel, David, Christian, Patrick, Shane, John, Justin, Tyler

    • Katie says:

      I have a Hudson & Nash ❤️

      Love Stella and Lennon for a girl- hoping for a third someday and first girl!

  4. Vania says:

    I don’t have kids and don’t plan on having them but I love lists, so if I had them the trick would be finding names that can be written and pronounced easily both in English and Portuguese. Options would be Olivia, Stella, Bianca, Maya, Sophia, Victoria for girls, Lucas, Nicholas, Noah, Benjamin, Oliver for boys… I do like Bruno, but my niece is already named Bruna.

  5. Dana says:

    I have a miller but for a boy ? I love it too

  6. Sarah says:

    Just named our little girl Clara June.

    My top boy names were Reid, Clarke and Brody and for a girl I also liked Ivy, Reese, Hannah, Elliot, Scotia and Cedar

  8. Melanie says:

    My daughters are Leslie and Addison and my son’s are Brycin and Vance.

    I originally wanted to name Leslie ‘ Spencer Rose’ but I was the only one that like it.
    I found deciding on a boys name was extremely hard and even thought about using my 1st son’s middle name (Deen) for my 2nd son.

  9. Kerri says:

    You must have really loved Bruno because it’s on the boys list twice! 🙂

  10. Kyla says:

  12. Ashley Severson says:

    My babies made your list! Sweet baby Harper is 4 months old (I think 4 days younger than Annie!) and sweet baby Finn is 4 years old next month! We had a lot of the same names on our lists! Another FAV is Theo! If we are blessed with another babe, he/she will be named Theo. Thanks for sharing! Xx

  20. Julieaanna Dorothy is going to be if I have a girl ❤️ Also love that Thompson is a name now hehe

  21. Josi says:

    Mine change frequently but right now I like Gibson, Eli and Grey for a boy. Shay, Thea and Piper for a girl.

    My daughter’s name is Falin (pronounced like Jimmy Fallon’s name) and my son is Owen. ?

  22. Kelly says:

    We went with Grace and Hannah for girls and Walker for our son. Old and classic. Love the names you picked!

  23. Kristen Munger says:

    Lovely! My daughter’s name is Stella Brooke. We named her after her Great Grandma Stella. ❣️

  24. Laura says:

    We just named our son Ivan (family didn’t love the choice), born December 5, 2018. Our other boys name was Holden. And since the gender of our baby was a surprise, our girl names were Hazel, Ruby, or Annie.

  25. MJ says:

    We named our daughter Tallulah! I absolutely love it.

  26. Julia says:

    Girl: Eloise, Alice, Charlotte, Annie, Lucie, Amelia
    Boy: Llewyn, Lennon, Nolan, Felix, Louis, Elliot
    It has to sound good in French and in English, not as easy as it sounds to find names we both liked 🙂
    Loved your list!!

  27. Maude says:

    I love Stella! It was my grandmother’s name. We named our little girl Ophelie and if we have a boy in the future, Leo has always been my top 1

  28. Coco Amery says:

    Atlas, Elliot and Ellis are my faves for a boy. Sienna, Harper and Ava for a girl. It’s realy hard to pick a name when you really have to.

  33. Michelle H says:

    I Lol’d at the beer brand names . Too good.

  34. Melanie says:

    My husband and I have 2 tiny humans now and there names are Wyatt and Vivian. We left both of the genders a surprise for us and everyone else when I was pregnant which was a very special gift for everyone but for me mostly because no one can take away the beautiful reaction I got from my husband when they were born. That being said when Wyatt was born that was the only name we had for boy or girl so glad he was a boy since we know if we would use it for a girl. When Vivian was born going into the hospital I had Freya for a girl (which my husband really didn’t like ) so we had to come up with something else and Nicholas for a boy. Just before we went in the delivery room we changed gear all together and went with Vivian or Serena for a girl and had nothing for a boy that we could both agree on, thankfully she was a girl and looked like a Vivian.

  35. Sabrina says:

    I love the names Leo, Cruz and Lincoln for boys and Olivia and Spencer for girls! <3

  36. Brandy says:

    We named our daughter Georgia but call her Georgie all the time. I was surprised at how many people openly told us they didn’t like it. Thankfully WE love it.

  37. Kristi says:

    Love Elodie! It’s going on my list

  38. Brittany says:

    I have 4 boys… Mason, Hayden, Jack and Wilder ❤️ Glad 3/4 made your list!

  40. Marlessa says:

    We recently named our baby girl Finley! We thought it could go either way!

  41. Allison says:

    Evangeline and Roman are our kids names and I still heart them!!!!

  42. Karen says:

    I love Elodie for a girl and Bryce and Damien for a boy.
    My husband is French so we want bilingual names.

  43. Danielle says:

    My girls names were always Stella and Sienna. But alas, I had two boys: Westley and Finley (Wes and Fin) and I love their names SO much! You and I have Similar taste in names.

    A lot of these names are just great! I’ve always liked our son’s name… Layne Mackey. Other boy names we were thinking about were Aries or Ares, and Silas. If we were going to have a girl, we were thinking of Aurora or Willa.

  51. Marissa says:

    My daughter’s name is Ellie!

  52. Zoë says:

    You have Bruno twice on your boy list! Turner was on my list for a boy name as well, love it but my husband wouldn’t go for it! I also loved the name Conley for a girl. I have 3 kids, 1 boy and 2 girls, and their names are Apollo, Nova and Odelle :).

  53. Diana says:

    Both my kids names are on your list! Amelia and Hudson! We call our daughter Milly for short.. and Huddy for our son.

  54. Amber says:

    I’m due in May and we don’t know what we are having! I have a lot of favs! My boyfriend is pretty picky! We have narrowed our names down to Amelyia for our girl and Camdyn for our boy! You have quite a few I like on your lists too!

  61. Natisa says:

    I have a Henry Mason and Theo Everett ❤️ Picking names is hard, but when you find the right one. It just clicks like it was meant to be. We love Isla, Eloise, and Alice for girls names.

  62. Nicky says:

    My maiden name is Cruz so we have decided to use Cruz as our boys first name and love it.. people keep on saying we should also consider it for a girls name since we are not finding out the sex before birth but I am not sold on it yet.
    I love Harper and Cameron for a girl!

  63. Katie says:

    You have Bruno twice under boys 😉

  64. Erin says:

    Named our little girl Wren and we couldn’t love it more! ?

  65. Kristy says:

    How did you have so many you liked and agreed upon? Not sure what’s worse, too many to choose from or taking awhile to find just one!

  66. Michelke says:

    Awe! I love your list. My boy is Harrison. I have two girls, Hadleigh and Hayden.

  67. Nicole Braganza says:

    Love your list of names!!! We were lucky enough to have 3 boys and we named them
    Easton William Fraser
    Mavic Wentworth Crosby
    Ryder Wyatt Xavier

  68. Melanie says:

    Cute names! My boys are Harrison and Hudson! Both made your list. If we had a girl we would’ve named her Hazel 🙂

  69. Lauren says:

    Ireland, Blue, & Harper for a boy? Interesting… I know several girls names Ireland ??‍♀️ love all the others though, most are on our list as well ?? We really love Willow for a girl too

  70. Nicole says:

    Seamus and Aiofe (pronounced E-fah) ♥️

  71. Hailey says:

    Aw my daughters name is Elodie and I get so excited when others have it on their list, I was worried it was too unique, but it absolutely fits her perfectly. Now expecting our second, we are loving Emme and Maren, but just can’t commit yet, it’s too hard!

  77. Erica says:

    Bruno is on the list twice! Does that mean you REALLY like that name? 🙂

  78. Nadya says:

    Our first born is Theoren (Theo) Frederick 😉

    I think your kids perfectly reflect the names you chose and it would be hard to picture any of these other names for them. I feel the same with my boys. Btw, what is Annie’s full name? It’s always nice to hear the story about how they’re named too.

  79. Laura says:

    My oldest is Jack Presley xoxoxo

  80. Brittany says:

    My girls are Veronica and Felicity. I’m still obsessed with their names, although I’m aware that I’m very biased. Lol
    I picked them because they are uncommon but not strange. In my opinion! 🙂

  81. Clynne says:

    I named my daughter Harlow

  82. Crystal says:

    I have 3 daughters – Charlotte, Sophia and Stella (my grandma’s name), so 2/3 made your list, not bad! I think if we would have had a boy we would have went with Jack. We found it much harder to come up with boy names!

  83. Crystal says:

    We have 2 boys and there wasn’t a long list of names picked out. The first time expecting we chose Leo too, and Ellis if it would have been a girl. The second time around we still loved Ellis so much that we decided on it for either boy or girl.

  84. Leesha says:

    We have a baby girl named Elsie Rose ❤️ Have loved this name since I was a little girl!

  85. Lindsay says:

    Just read your list and noticed two of my three babies were on your list….Henley and Lennon both girls:)

    I saw many names on your list that were on mine too.

  86. Evelyn says:

    Well… I am a bit biased BUt the name “Mason” is a beauty name! ?

  87. Heidi says:

    I really wanted to name my daughter Elliot (nicknamed Ellie), but my husband wasn’t on board. I also love Archer for a girl and if I’m lucky enough to have another little girl in my life that will be her name 🙂 Archer Rose. My boy name has always been Levi. Still haven’t had a chance to use it! I also love the name Grey, Fox and Stone.

  88. Sarah says:

    My daughter was born last March and we named her Presley Rae. Her name was the only one my husband and I agreed on. Of course two boys came before her (Madden Nathaniel, and Ezra Benson) so we thought we would never get to use it!

  89. Carly says:

    Evie and Sadie for a girl
    River and Caden for a boy

  90. Denise says:

    Named my daughter Kamryn!!! Loved Cameron but loved how we spelt it!!

  91. Cait says:

    Aw my 4 month old is named Elodie and we call her Ellie for short!

  92. Lynsey says:

    My daughter is Aynsley (Ainslie) and boys are Drew and Calum.

  93. Kayla says:

    Love those picks!

    We have a:

    Noah Christopher
    Benett Rhys
    Leo Jack
    Max Elliot

    It was so hard to name 4 boys!

  94. Lauren says:

    These are all of my favorites so far! Allegra

  95. Lisa says:

    Boy- Harris, Nolan, Harley. Girl- Paige, Sydney, Emma, Molly, Brooke.

  96. Roberta says:

    My kids are named Lucy & Jack. Your first pictures of your son patting your daughter’s head reminds me of them. They are only a year apart and as one-year old Lucy liked to check on her baby brother, I directed her to softly touch his head. She did it a lot and it became her habit. When Jack was five, she was still petting his head as a show of affection but by then he was over it. It was so funny. I still catch her doing it on occasion.

  97. Kate says:

    Great lists! We considered many of these for our son born January 15. We chose Rowan ?

  98. Emily says:

    We are planning to name our baby girl Hannah.

  99. Kim says:

    So funny! We named our oldest daughter Amelia, who is now 7 yrs old, and our other daughter, Elodie who turns 5 yrs old next month. We didn’t really hear those names a lot then, but are starting to hear them both more now in 2019. We still love both names!

  100. Sherell says:

    Sutter and Emmett- haha those are my boys names ?

  101. Brigitte says:

    That’s a good list. Our daughter’s name is Aliannah and our son’s name is Loyer (pronounced Lawyer). Also loved the name Joelle for a girl and Brexton for a boy.

  102. Megan says:

    Our daughters name is Rhyan (pronounced Ryan). Some people love it and others hate it.

    Love Grey and Greyson for a boy.

  103. Shay says:

    I love your lists! My sons full name is in your boys list! So cool as neither seem very popular. My sons name is Oakley Fredrick. Thanks for sharing your life with us!

  104. Melanie says:

    My boys are pretty close in age to both of your kids Jillian. My oldest son’s name is Remington and we call him Remy. And our younger son’s name is Ryder.

    If we were to have a girl, I love the names Isla or Hadley.

    I am a huge fan of older names and love, love, love Mabel for a girl but got a tonne of no’s from the peanut gallery. ( I’ve loved it since I saw it on an episode of Mad About You and it stands for Mothers Always Bring Extra Love)

  105. Kati says:

    Both my dogs names or on your list-

    Charlotte La Ruff is “Lottie” and Nash- we well we have our one sinner Grey.

  106. Mel says:

    My last was a surprise! And if she was a boy she would have been a Miller!

    A couple names that have always !! Been on my girl list that I didn’t use 🙁 are Bree, Winifred ‘Winnie’ or ‘Freddie’ and Scarlett !

  107. Jen says:

    Our two year old is named Nash. We love it! Our new baby girl is named Nilaya ( a Hindu name).

  108. Louise says:

    Girl- Ellenore, Grace, Bryn, Ayla
    Boy- Julian, James, Tripp, Jay

  109. Stephanie says:

    Scarlett, Margaret, Dylan…

    I can’t think of boy names haha! Maybe Steven, after my dad and brother.

  110. Candice says:

    We have a Cash, Mila, Lucy and Remington ❤️

  111. Ashley says:

    We named our daughter Layla Gray. I love how the two names balance each other. Layla is super feminine and Gray adds some masculinity. We were also considering Blake for her as well (it’s my middle name.)

  112. Katie says:

    We had our fourth baby boy last week and named him Cash Perry. ?? Leo was one of my top names just because your Leo is too stinking cute!!

  113. Debi says:

    I totally agree with the article. Kids are being pushed to hard. They just need to learn to be social first, not reading in preschool, math facts in kindergarten !

  114. Janis says:

    My daughters are 25 and 23. We named them Carlysle Joy and Grayson Kaye.

  115. Mandi says:

    My babies are Daisy and August and I love their names ♥️

  116. Kristen says:

    I have always loved Abby for a girl. Had my baby in November and finally got to use it! Abigail she is 🙂

  117. Kelly says:

    We recently had a boy, Wilder was on our list but for some reason did like the ending “er” we ended up going with Indy.

  118. Andrea Dorow says:

    Love the names! I have a Stella (6) and a Cruz (3)

  119. Melissa says:

    We named our daughter Mildred and she goes by Milly! I also loved Hank for a boy.

  124. Hayley says:

    My most favourite however, I used for my son,

    Sebastian Luc

  125. Lola says:

    My little girl’s name is Samya Noemi, I really love it..
    I love Ruth too and names for boys I like : Fineas, Caleb, Liam.

  126. Debbie Sigfusson says:

    Love Rianna – my daughters’ name which was very uncommon when she was born – 39 years ago
    I love different names, alot I really like on your lists: recently had a Gus and Lennon (girl) born to family and close friends. The trend of boys names for girls is rather neat.

  127. Jodie says:

    Our daughter’s name is Brynley Faith. The other 3 names we were deciding between were Aubree, Emerson and Berkleigh.

    For a boy we were thinking Blake, Cooper or Colton.

  128. Sabrina says:

    Lauren for a girl, Mirco for a boy! With a last name like Pasutto, an Italian name (that can be easily said in English) would have been a nice match, too. Leo and Annie are great choices! (Glad you didn’t choose Blue or Cash…sorry!) ? ❤️

  129. Shawna says:

    Wynter, jorja, Selena, Elizabeth, charlotte, Ava

    Miles, Liam, jamie, Jack, Lucas, Adrian

    My favourites are Noelle, Luca-Bella, Genicah, Cayleigh, Callum, Josh, Caeden, Giselle

  138. Kristina Perry says:

    Partial to Perry of course haha even for a girl first name! Ellie is precious too. I always loved the name Savannah for a girl because I love the nickname Savy but once I’m married my last name will be Austin and she can’t have TWO city names lol. So many factors to consider! Leo and and Annie’s names are so cute and suit them perfectly!

  150. Michelle Dehnke says:

    Well I have to go with my 3 kids names of course!
    Owen William
    Grace Marie
    James Allen
    We did not know the sex for any of them. Boys names were HARD! Owen was either going to be Brody or Owen of Sofie for a girl.
    Grace was going to be James for a boy (or Samuel if I had my way)
    And James was going to be Lauren if he was a girl. I also love the name Aiden for a boy. 2❤

  151. Diana says:

    My all time favourite girl name is Ella and when I found that I was pregnant and found out that we will be having a girl I was so happy to name my daughter Ella!

  152. Beth says:

    My husband and Inare expecting our first baby in July. We have a boy name picked out but we are having a hard time with a girls name. We both did love Henley from your list. We also liked Oakley as that was my husbands grandfathers name. Thank you for sharing, Jillian.

  153. Jade says:

    For my oldest his name was Ryder for boy and Lux for girl. We named him Nash
    For my middle Easton for a boy and Rhyer Ann for a girl. We named her Ayla Ann!
    For my youngest Emery for a girl and Easton, Wyatt or Rhyer for a boy. We named him Ryatt and was born in the same day as Leo!

    Clara, Amelia, Catherine for a girl
    Sebastian, William, Oliver for a boy

  155. Samantha says:

    We had girl names picked right away, but couldn’t agree on a boys name. We found out we are having twin boys, now the challenge is on to find two names we agree on lol! Thanks for sharing your favourites! I love the name Hudson for a boy.

  156. Katie says:

    We named our daughter Isla-August born this last November! Seemed fancy to do two first names but we just love it!!

    I love your lists for both girl and boys! We have similar taste in names I see. I have a two sons named Finley (Finn) and Harrison.

  160. Jessica says:

    Great lists Jillian!
    We named our son Grayson and our daughter Brinley. I found it was much harder to pick boy names.

  161. Isabelle says:

    Alice for a girl! We loved Noah for a boy but my husband’s brother named his son Noah so… we have no name so far if we have a boy!

  162. Barbie says:

    I have two sons, Michael Louis and Nicholas Francis. Their first names are my two most favorites boy’s names, (Nicholas is also my Grandfather’s middle name) and their middle names are after their two grandfathers. If I had a third son, I would have named him Joseph Vincent. Joseph, for my Dad, Francis Joseph (he went by Joe his whole life) who passed away ten years ago, and Vincent, for my husband.

    I don’t have any daughters, although I always has hoped we would have one. But our two girl’s names were Maria Elena (for his Grandmom, Mary, and my Grandmom, Helen) and Anna Rose (for his Grandmom Anna and my Grandmom Rose). I was very close to both of my grandmothers. I would have loved to have been able to honor them. Elena Rose would have been after them both. ♥️

  163. Kelly wiebe says:

  167. Jody says:

    I was convinced you would name your daughter Margo. Part of your mom’s name with the “o” ending to match Leo. I thought I was so clever but I was wrong and Annie is super cute!

  173. Tara says:

    26 years ago I named my daughter Emilah Rose. I’ve never had a regret and she loves it!

  174. Leigh-Anne says:

    Named my daughter Charleigh Quinn and had she been a boy she would have been named Jack….and although there were others, I don’t remember any other names! ??‍♀️

    P.s. – was it coincidence that in your list of boys names there is “Jack, Leo, Dawson” consecutively? -> Leo played Jack Dawson. ?

  175. Tara says:

    I have 3 teenage sons that are now 20, 18 and 16. Their names are…
    Luke Benjamin
    Jack Ryan
    Jaeger Jay
    (pronounced jagger NOT yager ?) he constantly has people pronounce it with the y sound so he affectionately got the nickname “jaegermeister” ?

  213. Summer says:

    Best way to name your baby is to walk in the room and introduce yourself as that name. First and last and shake hands with your partner as you do it. “Hello, I’m Blue Harris” Umm sorry, I don’t think so. The vast majority of your baby’s life is spent as an adult. I’m thinking Blue would have rather been named Grey!? LOL. Names matter. I don’t mind unusual names. But, All the weird spellings and non-names, your kid spends their life correcting pronunciation & spelling. Why? I’ll never understand it.

    We just had a little girl and we named her Crue. I had the name Crew picked for a boy since. And we didn’t know what we were having and well when she came out I just couldn’t imagine saying any other name. So we changed the spelling to make it a little more femine ?. Her big sisters name is Wren. We thought they sounded great together. Wren and Crue ??. Ps a little back story of the name “Cru” original spelling from the 80’s movie Rad hahaha. I always thought he was Soo cool.

Do your children have middle names? PS: I love how user friendly the new site is and I’ve loved you since the Bach!

  237. Tara says:
