Just echoing that Mimi is quickly becoming the "it" grandma moniker, as well as that on the flip side, it does sound like just that, a nickname for a baby girl. Mireia is a gorgeous name, and I read it right. If anything, go with Reia. Plenty of names take plenty of people a few tries to get. And Willa definitely begs for spanish difficulty. Seems less, YOU than Mireia anyway.

Well I already seconded my top five (Blue Ivy, Sandy, Mitt, Grey, Psy), but I'll also say Katniss and Tebow hit the NOTY nail on the head.

Mom to 2 "B" boys, I'm in that same what-to-do-with-a-third boat. Well, what to do if the third is a boy I should say. We have a girls name we have not gotten to use, twice now, that we still love and it's got enough of a sound and stylistic matching quality with the boys, but I think we're leaning towards another B name if we have another boy. I like the coordinating style and togetherness reasons for (fairness doesn't so much come into play), and agree there is too much of a good thing (esp in the e.g. provided about 3 names that all start not just with the letter K but the sound "Kay") but I don't believe our potential set would overwhelm or sound too cutesy or singsongy. My husbnd and I do not have matching initials, nor do either of our names begin with B. And, perhaps funny enough with the individuality argument, our names were a dime a dozen growing up so we've chosen fairly unique/less popular names for our boys. Not Don, Dan and David like their great uncles;)

I love the "recipe" start with an androgynous (sur)name and then play with the spelling, etc, lol! Probably funniest since I just set foot in a Justice store for the first time yesterday shopping for my niece! I do love this too since my husband and I like the root Bryn due to personal meaning so we've liked Brynlee for years now, if we're ever to have a girl. With 2 boys now we're keeping Brynlee on the table, but have recently discussed Brynner if we were to wind up with a third boy:)

In Response to Tough Baby Name Trivia

Robert the Bruce was also a Medieval King of Scotland for 20+ years. Lead the Scots War of Independence against the British. Only got that and Christopher - good trivia LW!

In Response to Name Spotlight: Bree

I know a five month old Bria named for a family surname. Mothers maiden name was Italian but I speculate her maternal grandmother Bria could have been Irish or Italian.

So funny re: Bruce! My dad is the one Bruce in a long line of Roberts, both namesakes after Robert the Bruce, but he has always hated it because of Beth's point at comment 12. He's always thought of it as a feminine name and whenever it's brought up he says it with a lisp. 'Think that it pretty generational though - in my 30s and don't know any Bruce's and never have heard it mocked that way other than by my father himself.
