Naming our Girl

Leah Maelle DuChene.
Where did we get the middle name, "Maelle"?
Well, we've always liked the names Mae and Ella (Micah was going to be Ella Mae Marie if a girl). Then, we heard and liked the name Maelle when Maelle Ricker won the Gold Medal in the snowboard cross event at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, becoming the first Canadian woman to win a gold medal at home in the Olympics. She pronounces it "My-elle" but we say "Mae-elle".
"Leah" goes with our other biblical names, Seth and Micah.
