The Name

Natali Amelia Winnell Byrd....quite the name eh? Two middle names? Well I had two middle names growing up so I figured my daughter should as well.

Natali - we agreed on this name a few months ago. I got the spelling from Natali Del Conte who is a technology news reporter for CBS and CNet TV.

Amelia - I love flying. Kelli loves the name. Thus Amelia after Amelia Erhart.

Winnell - my dear mothers name. My mom passed away 10 years ago, the day after I came home from college. I was very close to my mother. Growing up my mom started and ran her own adoption agency. She loved babies. I am very much a product of my mother in more ways than the obvious.

Byrd - Seems to fit as this is the last name Kelli and I use.

  1. Your FABULOUS wife and her sister also both have names that end in I when 'standard' spellings of both their names usually do not end in I.

    Natali sent me a text saying she wants you to update
