Personal experiences with the name Leilani: | Edit

My beauiful daughter is called Leilani, a relatively uncommon name in Australia. People usually need to hear it twice before they say it correctly but mostly people think it is a beautiful name. She also gets called Lani which is very cute and easier on the tongue for those people who find Leilani too hard to say.
