You’ve probably already read about why I named my first girl Shisha.
When I got Shayna – her name was April – and although Shisha died in April, the name really meant nothing to me and didn’t seem to suit her either. I wanted to continue my trend of a Hebrew name, but didn’t think Sheeva (7) was right. Again “schvatza” would probably be out, too. LOL
Well – she is beautiful. How perfect is “Shayna” – it means beautiful (German / Yiddish), as in the Yiddish saying “Shayna Punim” – Beautiful Face.
Quite often I find myself calling her “Shayna Shay” – Beautiful Shay’
