Personal experiences with the name Almond: | Edit

My daughter's name is Almyn. We decided to change the spelling bc in the south we don't pronounce the "d" at the end of almond. People LOVE it, although many family members had a fit about naming her "after a nut" they admit now it suits her so well. Which is funny bc my name is Jade (a rock)
