  • "I am a kindergarten teacher, so there a lot of names I hear a lot. I wanted to use a name that is not common , but pretty for my daughter. I too had thought of the Shirley MacLaine character in Terms of Endearment. I thought she was a strong, independent, classy, and beautiful. The meaning of the name is beautiful and positive. I couldn't think of a better name for my child. She is 14 months old, and I still love the name. I wouldn't change it for anything." Oct. 4, 2009: Report as inappropriate

Let's keep our fingers crossed that "dad" likes it too :)" Feb. 22, 2008: Report as inappropriate
