message 1: by J (new)

J My sister is about to have a baby. She's chosen Amelia (very pretty) for a first name and wants me to find suggestions for a middle name. Something French sounding she says.

RandomAnthony J, check these out:

I like "Domininque" and "Oceane" myself.

J Announcing:

Amelia Rose
7lbs 13 oz

Yeah - Rose. I give her Oceane (my fave), Cecile, Cosette, Fleur, and a couple dozen others and she chooses Rose. Is that even French?

It is a pretty name. She and Pepe Le Pew can cancel each other out.

RandomAnthony Congrats to your sister, J. Amelia Rose is a great name. I also like that your sister waited until the last second to decide upon a name. We did the same thing with our kids. I kind of wanted to see the kids before we decided upon a name. I wish we could do the native american thing where you wait a while before you get a permanent name. Oh well. I guess that's what nicknames are for.

J I'm a huge fan of nicknames. I call my kids Dumplin', Pixie/Peanut - depends on her mood, Grouchy Girl (she usually smiles), and Chief. Big Chief hates being called Big Chief, which just makes me do it all the more. I like being called by a nickname. Certain people call me names other than what my mother intended and it just feels good. Because they've known you so long and said your name so many times they feel the need to say it in shorthand. Or because they know you in a different way than other people do. They know a part of you that others don't and so a special name is required.

Alison Hi, J.

I love this question. I can't believe I was too late. I love baby names...I picked out six myself (3 kids--6 names). Anyway...Amelia Claire would have gotten my vote. My daughter's name is Claire, and I think this is the French spelling.

However, Amelia Rose is beautiful.

Sheila J.~

Your comment on the requirement of special nicknames for loved ones made me dig up an old poem:

He called me by my name today.
Just as if
we'd only just met
and had not been together
these ten long years.

He called me by my name.
And I was struck
by the wrongness of it,
clattering over my nerves
like fingernails on a chalkboard.

It doesn't fit anymore, my name,
at least not with him, between us.
It's too formal,
it does not express
the side of me that he alone knows.

When did it happen?
When did the change take place?
I'm no longer "me"
I'm part of a "we"
that has outgrown my name.

I like Rose as a middle name. I gave it to my daughter too. :)

Sarah (songgirl7) Sheila, I like that poem. When my husband says "Sarah" he must be mad at me.

Welcome to the world, Amelia Rose!

message 12: by J (new)

J <-- The invitation for my sister's baby shower. I made them into seed packets then tore the tops off so you pulled the card with the party info out of the seed packet.

Thanks for sharing the poem, Sheila.

Ko. There is a small bear at your door. Do not answer.

J Have I said thank you? Thank you, all.
Claire is beautiful, Alison.
Seth: Albertine?
