"My daughter's name is Clarice.My husband and I put alot of thought into naming our daughter. We both loved the name,and because it is so uncommon these days, that's what makes Clarice so special. At the time of my daughter's birth, Ashley was the popular name of choice. I've only met one other Clarice, by chance, in a store. I love the name and I'm glad my daughter has such a beautiful name."
