Name my sister's baby!/ Yay for girls!

Hello everyone.  I'm finally recovered from my horrible day yesterday.  I zoned out in front of the tv, ignored my family, ate pizza and wallowed in my flop-sweat pretzel smell last night.  Today I got up and showered and scrubbed that awful day out of my (pit)hair and I'm not looking back.  Today is looking much more promising because I'm working half a day in a fifth grade class that I really like and there is a student teacher. 

Then this afternoon I'm driving up to International Falls so I can be there when my new niece is born tomorrow morning!  I can't wait.  I asked Beth what she was planning on naming her new baby and she won't tell me.  She just keeps saying Gargamel, but I hope that's not really it.  Sam thinks she should name her Astird, and I said, "Do you mean Astrid?" but he says no, he means Astird.  You know how the name you give your child determines to some extent the success they will have?  I don't think the names Astird or Gargamel are very high on the success list.  What do you guys think she should name the baby?  You tell me in the comments and if she chooses one of the names you pick, I will send you a prize!  I will post pics tomorrow.

And I would like everyone to check out this post written yesterday from Milk and Cake.  She said everything I think, in a better way than I ever could.  Awesome!


  1. I have always wanted to name a girl, if I ever had one (too late now)



  2. they should name that baby puddin'! i just like to say that word, though. if i'd ever had my own babies, i would have named a boy Romero (after George of the Zombies) and if i'd had a girl, she would have been Surfer Rosa (after the pixies album). both of my kids are relieved that someone else named them, naturally.

    also! thanks for your nice comment. it feels good to know i'm not the only one out here thinking that sort of thing!

  3. Ooh. Milk and Cake gave me my name suggestion: Pixie!

  4. I always wanted a girl named Poppy!
    Shut it!! I like the name!

  5. Pilar.






    Suniverse. Wait. Too much?

  6. OMG I picked up a hitchhiker the other day and her daughter was named Montserrat.

    Also we threw a baby shower for a Nicaraguan woman who named her baby Maybelline.

    but my for reals suggestions are:

    Juniper Kady
    Clover Kady
    Kady Kady

    I LOVE Pixie. Honest.

    I'd also like to suggest:
    Hermoine, Flannery, Anastasia, Petra, Vesper, or Anne

    I spelled Hermione wrong, and I was kidding about 'Anne'.

  9. They named her Millie which accurately conveys her quiet old-world dignity.

    Dana, Hermione reminded me of when Beth was first reading the Harry Potter books and she had never seen that name before and was talking to me about something and called her "Herm-wan" and when I laughed she argued with me that that is really how it should be pronounced.


I would love your comments.
