  1. Similar to our first daughter, we wanted a unique name special only to them and us. My oldest is Susie Rayne, Rayne is combined from my husbands first 3 letters and my last two, Irene and Raymond. For our second one, we wanted a similar name, so we took from her sisters RAE, first 2 and last letter. They are both unique and we couldn’t be happier. Lily Rae.
