Quoting she nan igans:" See, I think that seems so weird. A name is a name. I really don't think kids "act" like certain names. ... [snip!] ... names. However, if I'd named them differently, then I wouldn't be able to imagine them with the names they currently have, haha"
I guess for me it's because I thought of names to give Lily, I had names I was so stuck on. I was stuck on Atreyu for a boy, and Kadence for a girl. I was SO stuck on that. But I saw her and then a name I mentioned once seemed more fitting. I seriously was so stuck on Kadence but she did NOT look like one. I think kids can "look" their names. I changed Lilys middle name and she never fit her original name, but she fits her name now.
