Sadly, they justed wanted a "unique" name, so no homage. ;-)


And YES! Let's do a local PNW get together!

Gorgeous choices! We have very similar tastes in names. :-)

One option that I have been coveting, but haven't convinced hubby yet (especially since there is no baby gestating) is the nn Birdie for Bernadette.

Yes, exactly this. It was fabulous to be able to give my NICU baby his name immediately. It also prevents medical errors (there was an article about this recently).

That said, my BFF who had identical twins allowed their older daughter to decide who was who. :-)

Welcome to Baby Oscar!


I've had the same thoughts about Everett and Aurora! :-)


The ones on this side of the pond (Kitsap Peninsula) are Skyler = girls and Schuyler = boys. Although we know a couple of boy Skylers. Plus one Skyeler (I don't know why).


I'm also PNW (not far from Lucubratix -- we've had playdates together with our kiddos!).

I know 2 Lachlans under the age of 5, multiple Finns of various formal names including female Finns, the only Weston I know is in his early 30's.

I also voted for your 3rd option. It's beautiful!

My Alexander isn't shortened to Alex. Most people ask him what he prefers to be called. The nn  of the moment is "AJ". Sigh. The one nn I wasn't fond of is the one he's chosen for the summer. Oh well. I'm hoping it was like his intense desire for a mohawk at age 7. He got one, enjoyed it, and was done.

Yes, we also have high fructose sorn syrup (nasty stuff for your health), and corn syrup which can be used for baking and such also (and we have that in dark and light).

Only change to what you have above is that corn meal isn't exactly polenta (we have that too):

And Corn is a grain and a fruit in the botanical sense, not a vegetable despite what many would like to believe.

I like this quote, "All grain are fruit, but not all fruit are grains."

That would be corn starch here in the US. :-)

Boy or Girl?

July 3, 2015 08:34 AM

Yep. It suddenly hit me one day when I was introducing him for a day camp at age nine. Then I was horrified until I realized no one else had clued in and the name nerd took 9 years to clue in. ;-)

Shouldn't be a big deal. I just realized the other day that my husband and I say our daughter's full name differently. He says Ee-VAN-gel-een while I say it Eh-VAN-juh-leen.

She's 4 and doesn't care (although now I want to correct my husband all the time--thankfully he only says her full name rarely).

I know or have heard the following while out and about:

2 Caedmons

a Crawford, Ephraim, Horatio, Leopold, Sinclair, and Tavish

2 Guineveres and Halcyons

an Oona and a Xanthe.
