Personal experiences with the name Alijah: | Edit

It's my son's name! I have twins and my kids all have A names. I love the name Elijah, but changed it to fit our A name thing. We knew of an adult Alijah before having ours and now a friend has named her son Alijah too! Name fits our son: sweet, loving, yet strong...our gentle giant.

My name is Alijah Turner and i am 14 and just think the name is unique and i am just curious about how many people share the same name with me and i am a gentle giant in my eyes i am 6'0 tall and i stand up for what is right and if i see something wrong with some one i ask them if they are ok and if i can help them get over their issue/issues and if i see bullying i stop it because it is not right well if anyone is just like me i would like to hear how.
