I love your naming scheme. You should get a couple more males and name one Bill Gates and the other Steve Jobs and see who turns out more dominant.
Or, name a new one DSL and see who's *really* faster, Cable or DSL!!!
Ha ha ha! Maybe noone else finds that the least bit funny... Ah, well, I'm amused by the little things.
Ashley is because she's dark grey, the color of ash, and she's a girl, so Ashley rather than Ash.
Spirit is our new baby. He came from the shelter with that name. I kept it because.... to make a long story short, my 29-yr-old brother died a few weeks before I met Spirit. When I expressed my interest in adopting him, I found someone else had "claimed" him. So I made a little prayer to my brother, and that deal fell through, and just a few hours later the shelter called to say I could have Spirit. Maybe it's corny, but I felt an instant connection to Spirit and something in his eyes just grabbed me. He came to me when I really needed some cheering up, so now I can remember my brother every time I look at him. So it's a "spiritual" reference.
