We named our "little surprise", Landon on May 15,2015. Our older'son, Logan, told us he had been praying for a baby brother (he didn't let us in on this until I found out I was pregnant). We're so glad we have him and I think Logan and Landon sound great together. Landon is a strong name and It'suits him perfectly! It was also the only name my husband would agree on. My father-in-law is the only person that doesn't care for that name, so he calls him Jake...

My name is Kennedy. Most people think It's spelled "Kenady" since there is a girl that has the name'similar to mine. People doesn't really call me by my name'since I'm a twin so they'd go by my last name. I'm grateful to have Kennedy as my name because It'sounds elegant (even'though I'm quite the opposite, but I'm trying to improve). Be thankful to be called Kennedy because our name is one of a kind!

Don't do it...this was a 90s trend. Now It's being viewed as a stripper type of name. The trend is just over!

Our daughter's name is Kennedy and despite her very petite size at 4 she has a huge exuberant personality. The name carries alot of expectation with it. We have found that it is growing in popularity but that it is unique and lends to broad acceptance and many people comment on the'suitability to our tot.
