In Response to Haneke?

I dont think its weird to name your child after your cousins old housemate.  Its the name your like more than the person.  Not sure about continuing to write it in poetry though,  may be a little strange

other names with the same feel Hannah, Rebekah, Anika, Anna, Susannah, Dakota, Erika, Makayla, Kezia, Savannah, Havana, Shekinah, Keturah, Helena, Hadassah, Jessica, Makenna, Monika, Saskia, Zakiah, Shakira, Bianca, Danika, Cassandra, Tamika, Veronika, Katerina, Nikita, Nikola, Natasha, Victoria

In Response to Different Last Name

Usually it is difficult with schools and flying to have a different name to the parents and I'm not sure if the law allows it,  could you use your wife's surname.  Its easier if the child and the parents have the same surname,  Maybe you could change your name by deed poll.  All the best

August 8, 2018 05:44 PM

Congratulations and so lovely to see an update.  Wishing you all the best
