So thank you. I love all of your readership so incredibly much and I’m grateful for all of your participation in the various series, commenting opportunities, and form submission requests

But does Rain’s rarity make the name simply too exotic or gloomy for a child? Or does Rain’s imagery keep the name a peaceful and natural choice for a baby or adult? Today, I’m taking a good look at the name Rain, including analyzing the goo
