"I named my daughter Nile after visiting the river nile in eygpt. I learnt a lot about the history of the river nile and it is the main source of water (as it rarely rains). The nile was used for transport, survival i.e. drinking, watering crops, logistics etc. Which in turn brought wealth and prosperity to the aincient egyptians. Most people love the name and they do remember her name because of the river. when I say her name some people say "NAYALL". I just correct them and say the river nile." Aug. 3, 2008:
