I know I picked my daughters name very intentionally.  Her first name means "princess" with 4 big brothers she is the princess.  And her middle name means "Gods precious gift", I had 4 miscarriages before I was able to conceive and carry her to term so she is God's precious gift to me.

Interesting that Aina is female child born with umbilical cord wrapped around neck as my daughter is Arianna - so close - and that is how she was born of course by C-section.
