Thank you, I appreciate your compliment. Most people usually think they're way too "out there", but that's just matter of opinion I guess.
Amaya is a name both of us have liked for a good while, and the name Jade came from a show on Discovery Health where there were conjoined twins and they ended up making it. One of them was named Jade and she really was a fighter, and we both agreed that it's a beautiful name.
Atreyu is a name from The Neverending Story (you might have heard of the book/movie..it's old). My father used to read it to me when I was little, and the character Atreyu became my hero. As soon as I mentioned the name, daddy loved it, and Elijah is a bible name he really liked. We debated between Antonio for a middle name (since it's daddy's middle name), but he didn't like the sound of it. Those are the stories behind our choices of names.
