  1. It means “beautiful one” and having such a tough time with gender disappointment, after I emerged from the feelings, I decided to go with something that would symbolize a kind of, metamorphic sentiment change. Not too popular, but not rare either. And that’s how I came up with her name:)

  2. I selected Cali because a girl I went to school with was named Cali. I’ve never heard of that name before and she was so nice to me and was sweet as can be. I named her Cali because i hoped she would turn out to be just like her. Low and behold my girl is the sweetest, most caring, loving young woman a mom could ever ask for.

  3. It is were the father and i were born were we fell in love were weve made our life were all of our children were born including cali … We love California
