  1. My little guys name is West, middle name Ryan after daddy. I wanted daddy to help choose babies name and I love it! At first I was a little apprehensive bc its directional but thought about it longer, looked up a name meaning behind it and loved it. First I looked up name traits of myself which were pretty spot on. Next was dads name traits and surprisingly his were spot on also, sometimes those name traits meaning things just recycle words and name meaning. Next was West’s and it was the perfect combination of myself and Dads name character traits :). We are happy with his name and he’s amazing. PLUS, him and I share the same W initials.
