  1. We actually had a very hard time deciding what we wanted to name our daughter. We ended up looking through baby name books and with 2 different colored pens we circled the names each my husband and I liked. when we were done the only name we both had circled was Alison. So that’s what we names our daughter. The only name out of thousands that we both liked and agreed on.
