  1. I was considering Hazel for my daughter’s name before she was born. We ended up naming her Sophia, because we just liked the name. I have now learned that Sofia is a popular name for a city around the world. It also reminds me of visiting the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul Turkey in my 20’s. I love how names can invoke memories, and feelings, and connections to people and places.
