Piper Annabelle Snow is my daughter, born 9/16/09. She was named after the genus of plants, Piper. Piper methysticum, Kava kava and Piper nigrum, black pepper are two well known plants of this genus. My husband and I are plant lovers and lovers of all things green. Therefore we wanted our daughter to be named for some of our beloved plants. Her name is spunky, spicy and unique, just like her. We would brainstorm names for our daughter on long walks while I was pregnant, names like Bryonia, Aralia, Linden, and Angelica were thrown into the mix. And when we thought of Piper it was a done deal.
