Well, over here it's pronounced MIE-ree. And I like the sound of that better than Vaary. But, Ange doesn't like either, so we're still done with that one. tongue.gif

Several years ago when I asked my neighbors daughter what name she would like to call her new brother she said with no hesitation "Butter Fly Catcher Rainbow baby"

Different but very catchy and memorable.....

Out of the mouths of Babes......lol

Hey, OldRaven, what names does Ange like? Have any of our suggestions met with her approval? I'm sure you guys are finding more yourselves, and I must admit to being curious about the ones you're mulling over. This is a lot of fun! No pressure on us, and we get to experiment. biggrin.gif

So what does she think??

Dreamer,
At the mention of Coira (COY-rah I assume, correct me if I'm wrong) she stirred from her trance, watching cooking yet again. So far she's asked me "It's Coira, right?" about 30 times. So, I'm pretty sure that one's going to be on the finals. smile.gif Other than that, she's extremely picky.

You know what drives me? When people act like a certain name is an insult, just because they 'knew someone' by that name who was an ingrate. So? I knew someone by that name who was a wonderful person, and I like it. You know what? I bet as soon as you named your kid that certain name, you'd have better feelings toward it. Bah! *end rant*

I like Mhairi. Always have. But I can't use that one for reasons noted above. yar

hehe well, I don't mind the name personally (it's often pronounced the way you said over here as well..). It's okay but not my favourite. But I think if people give their kids weird names they should get the pronunciation right in my eyes... =/ that's why I won't ever do it to my kid and call it Paul with first name because the german pronunciation makes me shiver.

Well, we're not out to give our kids weird names anyway. Unique, maybe. At least where we are. That's why I'm glad I got Summer Solstice out of her head. That's just too much.

Old Raven, I am so glad to hear that you are not planning any wierd names.

I knew a girl, when I was in school, whose name was April Showers. There was so many kids made fun of her because of that. sad.gif

OldRaven,

Will Ange accept Mhairi as a middle name? I like the sound of Coira Mhairi, and you'd have both of your favorites, too. At least it can't be shortened to some obnoxious nickname! My hubby was seriously considering the name William Robert if we had a son. Now I like both of those names, please understand, but I knew that the poor kid would be immediately christened "Billy Bob"(!) and never hear William except from me!! UUUGGGHHH!

What are some of the names she likes, and how do you feel about them? Remember, too, that you've got a good bit of time to work on this. Maybe she just needs to get used to the names in reference to her own child, instead of someone else.

Patience, M'Lord. laugh.gif
