  1. Loved it

  2. My husband had a dream that we named her Alyssa but I wanted a different spelling Like Alyssah. I only dislike that it’s too common! And Alyssa was born 15 weeks early and we never had a chance to really have a sec to rethink of the spelling or anything it happened too fast

  3. I wanted all vowel names! I also wanted for girls same but different. My kids are
    Alyssa
    Olivia
    Isaiah
    Elaina
