"My son was named after my 17 year old neice who passed away
in May 2003. My sister and I were visiting my neice's grave. I said a prayer out loud to my neice asking her for "A sign for a good boys name. Immediately, after saying the prayer my sister (my neice's mother)and I both said the name "REID" without even looking at one or another
or my neice Donna's head stone. The words just came out.
It was the most peacefull feeling in the world.

"People often ask whether it's spelled "Reid" or "Reed" and whether it's a family name or not. We named our son Reid because it was a strong, simple name." Apr. 24, 2006:
"I didn't like it when I was younger (too many obvious name calling opportunities), but after I found out I was named after my Grandmother's maiden name (who I was extremely close to!) it began to grow on me. I like it now." Dec. 20, 2005:
