Since the first time I read the story of Delilah and Samson, I have been in love with this name. I am not pregnant now, nor do I plan on getting pregnant any time soon (I'm 17) but my boyfriend and I both adore the name. We plan on naming our first daughter Delilah. :D It will probably fit her well.
