Our daughter, Th0masina Ade1e, arrived early this morning, after a long induction with a dramatic end (2 cm to baby in exactly 2 hours, with the anesthesiologist walking in the door right as she arrived). She's quite little but formidable and her long-and-formidable name seems to fit perfectly. The Spouse is using "Tamsin", big brothers are using "Tommie" and "Tamina", one grandparent has declared her intent to call the baby "Sina", and I'm enjoying all four syllables. We're really getting the most out of the name's flexibility! And, the family members who knew the Great Aunt her middle name is after have been very deeply touched, and we're looking forward to sharing stories of her namesake with our little girl. So, all in all, we're really pleased with the baby and name, as both are doing wonderfully. Thanks to everyone on the BNW community for helping name this girl over the years!
