Say: Hi Rafferty, nice to meet you.
Think: It's ok, just not my style.
This is my son Darrell.
Say: Hi Darrell. How are you?
Think: Darrell is not my style at all. It's a somewhat old fashioned name which is just not ready for restoration. I can only picture a Darrell as a middle-aged man and not on a little boy.
I'd like you to meet my daughter, Genevieve Odette and my son, Rowan Augustus.
Say: Hi kids, nice to meet you.
Think: I love Genevieve and Rowan! Gorgeous! I'm lukewarm on the middle names although Augustus is better than Odette.
This is my daughter Amelia. She goes by Mia.
Say: Hi there, Mia!
Think. Awww, Mya and Mia! (I was watch Princess Diaries yesterday.)
This is my nephew, Mordecai.
Think: Heavy and difficult to pronounce.
These are my daughters: Allison and Vivienne
