Baby girl has a name!

We have decided on a name!  We've been trying it out for a few months at home just to be sure we liked it.  We've been slowly telling family and friends, and her name officially came out at the baby shower this past weekend.  The name of Baby Girl is (drum roll...): 

Carsyn Alexis Malek!!!

It took us a long time to settle on her name.  I wasn't sold until I happened to be watching an episode of Sesame Street and there was this super cute little girl on there named Carson.  My top pick for a first name had been Alexis, however we both noticed how popular Alexis had become so we decided to use that as a middle name instead.  We've already started thinking of some nicknames; Carsy and Cami (initials CAM)

Carsyn is an alternate spelling of Carson, meaning "Carr's son".  The name Carr is of several derivations.  It is from the Middle English and Scottish car, carre (marsh, mossy place), from the Welsh caer (a fort), and from the Gaelic carr (rock).

The Irish and American meaning of Ryland is 'Island Meadow', the English meaning is 'land of rye'.  Seems fitting hers is 'Mossy Place'.  :)
