I have the week of the 22nd off, and would love to get together! I'll send you off an email!

And thank you. We're talking adoption at this point, and amusingly while perusing all the different sites, I was drawn to photos of one little girl (although she is in the pending adoption category currently). Upon reading her profile, I learned that her name is Evangeline. LOL!

I've had women of all ages including teens and men under about 60 not know it's a real name. Men over 60 seem to have read Longfellow. ;-)

So it depends on whether I give their full name or nicknames. NNs get us, "Oh! You must like Pokemon" with DD (She's Evie pronounced the same) this has gotten worse in the last month or so.

Full names get us, "What strong names!", "What long names!" with the additional, "Did you make that up?" or "How do you spell that?" for DD.

Oh Congratulations! We may be finished ourselves which makes me very sad. 

We need to meet up again when you are feeling recovered!

Oh! This angers me so much! I'm so very sorry! ((hugs))

Two of my daughter's dolls that she named on her own are on this list! Rosalina and Arayah. We still don't know exactly where she picked them up.

Temple Butte was an important place to them, and they decided to "fancy up" Temple. I don't think Mom is aware of Charlotte's Web yet. I was half hoping the little sister was Fern.

My coworker who is in a similar situation just named their little boy Leondro. Unfortunately, the English pronunciation is Lee-ondro while the Mexican side pronounces it Lay-ondro (proper pronunciation). If you are okay with that, then it's a great name to cross the divide.

I was called by everyone else's name fairly regularly, including the dog and a fish one time. I think my mother's difficulty was enhanced by the fact that we all started with "S". Yes, even the pets...
