  1. We just thought it was a beautiful name that isn’t super common these days. Her whole name is Rachael Grace Brink which has a nice rhythm to it and everyone we’ve shared it with has said how pretty the name is, literally no one has objected. She’s a very pretty little girl so it fits. Rachael means ewe (female sheep/lamb) and is a prominent female figure in the Bible, Grace was given because I like it’s many meanings. I also intend to give other similar names if I have another daughter, Natalie Hope or Abigail Faith.
