  • “To me Allie could be a nickname for Alyssa . It reminds me of Leah from Teen Mom naming her daughter Aleeah.”
  • “I would use: Layla, Kenna, Bradley, Willow, and Hazel. Criminal: Cambree and Kolter.”
  • “Jadon. The spelling drives me nuts. I keep thinking of a pair of wrinkled old German men conversing.”
