Adair is my daughter's name, and it fits her to a T. Occasionally people call her Addy, which is fine, but I love "Adair" too much not to use it most of the time. She is nearly eight now, and nearly everyone who meets her comments on what a great name it is. We have only run across one other so far, a teenage girl who was astounded to meet us.
My Great Aunt Adair recently passed on to the next life. She was a lovely lady - very creative and an avid hiker. She loved to talk about the wildlife in her backyard.
