I fell in love with the name Godiva and the meaning...God's gift. My daughter is really a gift from God. She is intelligent and smart and sooo pretty. She always want to take care of mummy and can't stand to see mummy in pain or anger.
She will make a great queen in the future.someone said to me...don't be surprised to see her having her own horse...lolz. I think it's still for good,I don't care what people think about the old Godiva who rode on a horse but my Godiva is an excellent girl and am proud to call her that..my gift from God. Her teachers said she is the eye of the class, helping out and carries everyone along.
Many people like to nickname her Diva.
She's just wonderful...
