Welcome back!!! I hope you're able to stick around for a while :).

Those are some spectacular names and sets.

Do you know if there's a story behind Proctor Peacock? That just sounds too good to be true--like it should be the name of the star of a children's book series.

The fidelity to a theme of some of these parents is impressive. On the other hand, I'm tickled by the ones who "break" the theme partway through. Like, was Tesla a typo for Tessa that they decided to roll with, or was she born in the car, or...? On the other hand, I really want Finnley to be Flannery, for an all-female-authors literary set.

Is the Australia family from Australia, or do they just have a great fondness for the place?

And how do you pronounce Mavourneen? Also Svea?

Welcome back, sharalyn!

I knew a Tesla about my own age years ago, before the car company was founded. She joked about having a magnetic personality.

Google tells me Mavourneen is Irish, but at first glance it struck me as potentially Arabic.

Thank you!

That's too funny about Tesla!

Yep--she was your typical red-haired, green eyed with slight Irish accent. :-)

Thank you! Full time work plus family then full time plus half time plus family really did a number on me. I've been solely working one part time job for over a year, and am just now feeling more like myself again.

No story that I know. It really was amazing, and I had to hold back from asking super impertinent questions. ;-)

Nope, Tesla was what her husband suggested and she liked the sound of it! That's it!

<3 Flannery

Mah-VOOer-neen, Ss-VAY-ua (although the accent on the VAY is subtle)

I know a girl Tesla - she's 17 and named Tesla Nikole after Nikola Tesla

Rapunzel, eh? 

That name only made the 5-or-more threshold in 1959 (9 born) and 2017 (6 born). Paisley is a surprisingly good sister name without being a Princess theme, what with the floral association and internal [z] noise.

Oh, man! There are too many names to comment on!

Right? She was born in 2012.

 

I thought they were well matched and Paisley led Rapunzel a different way than Aurora would have!

Huh. I’ve met a little female Remington before and I wasn’t sure how I felt about it Just because it seems SO masculine to me. I wonder if they go by Remy.

They were calling her by her whole name (also her sister).
