When I was expecting Maymoonah we were choosing possible boys names and girls names that we liked. Myself and 5 of my close friends happened to be pregnant at the same time. So 3 of us (including one of my best friends) had chosen the name Nusaybah - but didn't tell each other. But they were due before me so Nusaybah was taken.
Then my heart inclined to Maymoonah. My husband liked it but obviously wanted to have a named he had chosen. ONE day I decided I would do some reading and find out more about Maymoonah the wife of the Prophet Muhammad.
It turned out that the prophets wife maymoonah also shared the same surname as my husband 'Al Harith'. Thus my future daughter would fully share the same name as the wife of the prophet - Maymoonah Bint Al Harith.
