So a lot of people have asked us how we came up with the name Dreyken Jade. It started back before Tarek was even born and we were thinking of names for him. Dan liked the name Drackon, I was not such a fan. We decided to go with the name Tarek instead. Well, a few days before Dreyk was born Dan said he liked the name Drakken instead of Drackon. I still was not sold than he sent me an e-mail with the name spelled Dreyken, and the comment that if we named it Dreyken Roland it would have the same initials as him (Roland is Dan's middle name and the middle name we were going to use for a boy.) I thought the name looked to girlie and Dan said we could use it for a boy or a girl. I liked it for a girl, especially spelled Dreyken, however, I was not sure on a middle name. Dan liked the name Jade and I was unable to come up with anything else that I liked better. Plus the more I heard it the more I liked it. It was a good thing she was a girl because I still don't think that I would have used it for a boy and we were at a loss as to what boy name we would have used. Dan has informed me that the name means "Lord of the Dragons". So anyway, I have to give Dan the credit for the name as he came up with it. Dan enjoys using names that "mean" something so Kalli means "Beautiful" Tarek means "Scholar" and Dreyken means "Leader".
