My Sister's Expecting!
I wasn't really sure where to put this topic, but I think you all would like to hear about this.
My second-oldest sister is expecting another girl in October! Our relationship has been pretty rocky over the years, and since we don't see eye-to-eye on a lot of things, I was a bit apprehensive about what she was thinking about for names. Since her first daughter's name is I$abelle Ro$e (while a nice name, it isn't exactly inspired or fresh), I wasn't sure what to expect. Imagine my surprise when she tells me her top contender is M!riam V!olet! She said she's gotten some negative feedback, but I told her to ignore it, because it's such a great, lovely name. Both Miriam and Violet are names that I love, but I was so pleased with her choice that I don't mind her claiming them at all. She even talked about how both Miriam and my name are Mary variants, so I'll have a little namesake! And how much she liked the flower middle name connections of her girls!
Pleasant surprises are so nice!
Come October I'll update you all on what she's decided.
