So how on earth did we name our first baby with Yelena Hayden?
First on how?! after my november 2007 pelvic ultrasound and upon hearing the words "it's a girl!".. i knew she will be named Helen. Helen from Helen of Troy, coz hubby is such a fan of epic-homer-iliad-myths-gods-godessess movie. He would tease me then that if it would be a boy, his name would be Achilles to which i strongly disagree. But then i knew in my heart i'm having a girl.. (Intuition! Intuition! hahah)
Also I was thinking of naming her Marian (Marian Rivera / Marimar), i remember rushing home earlier after office just to watch Marimar at some point during my conception of Yena. But i wanted to make it sound posh. Maarte ang ina, sorry na lang. :)
So it's Helen, mapagbigyan lang ang ama! But i made variations (dahil maarte nga ako!).. I was thinking of Yelen. What's with Y? I dunno i just like Y! But it's kinda bitin so i made arte again and decided to add some letter and finally settled with Yelena.. :D
On the next name, Hayden. Some people would associate it with Dr. Hayden Kho Jr, current flame of Dr. Vicky Belo, but it's not! He's cute though, hihi! I got the name from the hollywood star of the TV series 'Heroes' Hayden Panettiere. Why? Because i saw her on yahoo and then searched her on google and found some more pictures of her on people and hoorah.. i just fell in love with her face.. she's beautiful and i think her name would blend with my Yelena.
And now, from the combination of Helen of Troy and Hayden Panettiere..
Meet our Yelena Hayden!
