  1. We chose Lael because we wanted a name that was unique yet not too odd. We also loved the meaning of it: belonging to God. After a lot of prayer we felt like the Lord really confirmed that this is who this little one was.
    I love that I have only met one Lael in my entire life besides our baby girl.
    One thing I didn’t anticipate was that many people wouldn’t know how to pronounce it! So we have to help others know how to say it! Sounds like “Noel” but with a “Lay” instead 😉
