Famous Person

Keeley Hawes Actress

Why my parents choose Keeley Kirstin

The reason my parents choose Keeley is they wanted a name that was different. They believe that names are to identify one person from another. On a trip to New Orleans, they walked into an Irish store and bought a book on Irish names. My father's father was Irish, so they started their search.

They did not want to find out if I was a girl or a boy, they wanted it to be a surprise. The meaning of my name in Galic is "beautiful one". My parents liked the name and the meaning.
The reason for choosing Kirstin is the derivative of christian, as in Jesus Christ.
