I was reading over at Joy in the Burbs and she asked why we chose our children's names.
We called the first son Stephen James Leslie, first Stephen was for my ex-husband's favourite pop star Stevie Wonder but for me it was after a favourite cousin of mine. James was my maiden name and since my dad's name was Tudor I did not want to use that for my sons middle name, and lastly Leslie for my husband's father.
The second son was called David Alan, David because it was a good biblical name and Alan after my husband
The third son I wanted to call Michael, for no good reason really, but my husband liked Jesse, so we ended up calling him Jesse Michael,
