What's in a name?

A few people have asked or remarked about the girl's names, and I've told the story enough times, sometimes the short version, sometimes the long, but I thought I'd post it down so if anyone cared to get the long version (then I can just tell people the short version and point them to my blog).

Anyway, the inspiration for the names in general comes from a Japanese influence (not in terms of having the names sound Japanese, or even that the sounds are Japanese, but in terms of having "Kana" or "Kanji", which my [bad?] definition is a symbol that represents something or someone, which can be combined to create an idea/word/thought/being/etc.) I like how, for example, my friend Hiromi, her name is made up of 2 kanji, "Hiro" meaning "big, large" and "Mi" meaning "beauty", although in Japanese, there over 50 ways of writing the name 'Hiromi' (all with very subtle different meanings), anyway, I liked that, so when we named our first daughter: KyeLee Ann it was made up of different parts (it would be like 3 Kanas Kye and Lee and Ann)...

All the girls names are derivatives of family names, the girls are:

KyeLee Ann
KyeAnne NataLee
KyeLin ChristiAnne

The "Kye" is from SKye (sometimes I think of my name as S'Kye, because it's fun to think of that way-LOL)
the Ann and Anne comes from my wife: Anniche, and her mom Ann (I added the 'e' on KyeAnne and ChristiAnne because it looks better, but no significance)
The "Lee" comes from my family, specifically my great-grandpa Lee, and others in the family like my great-aunt LyndaLee
"NataLee" is after my wife's sister Anette Natalie (and the Lee again)
the "Lin" is after other people in my family, my step-mother Linda, my great-aunt again Lynda.
"ChristiAnne" the Anne as mentioned earlier, and my wife's maiden name is Christiansen.

So basically all the children are named after people in their family (immediate family like my wife and me, my wife's maiden family-name, and extended family names like grandmothers, great grandparents, an aunt, and a great-aunt)

and the names are made up of the basic parts like this:
Ann or Anne

I think that that is the longest long version that anyone cares to read, hope you enjoyed it.
