Oh my goodness Emma! That's just beautiful. My boyfriend and I love it and I got all teary eyed when I read it this morning. I was going to reply immediately, but I've been out with two of my goddaughters all day. It's so lovely, I am going to write it down for her baby book, and the other one I am going to paint on the wall between the unicorn and faeries. Obviously, after this little poem we're going with Aphrodite. Thank you so much my darling! From the both of us.
These are the three we've come up with this far. Boyfriend really want a normal name in there (like Tabitha). Opinions and suggestions?
Aphrodite Illyria Wren
Aphrodite Tabitha Wren

Or first middle thoughts:

Aphrodite Isolda Wren
Aphrodite Aurora Wren (too R-heavy, though?)
Aphrodite Elisa Wren
Aphrodite Roselda Wren
Aphrodite Callista Wren
Aphrodite Verona Wren
Aphrodite Evanna Wren
Aphrodite Vivia Wren
Aphrodite Sophronia Wren
Aphrodite Aella Wren (Aella means "whirlwind" in Greek- sounds fitting for Roo!)
Aphrodite Morgana Wren
Aphrodite Nephele Wren
I put my favorites for you in bold.
BTW- Emma, that poem is so sweet! I love it.

Sleeping in your white lace nighty
Snowflake-delicate but mighty
Aren't you happy Mama's flighty?
But for that you'd be a Beatrice
Or Diana like the huntress
Theodora ancient empress
Cleopatra the seductress
Niniane the enchantress
Rosalind the duke's fair daughter
Always loyal. But your laughter
Had a wildness, had a blueness
Aphrodite? Something to this
Shining, joyful, seafoam name
Aphrodite free of shame
Blessings on your scallop shell
Little Roo I wish you well."
Coming out of lurkdom on this thread to tell Emmabobemma that this is AMAZING. AMAZING.
Otillie, my personal name style is very different than yours and I never thought I would say this to anyone, but Oh, I PRAY that you do call little Roo "Aphrodite." How could she be anything but, now?**Proud mama to Owen McCabe and Eloise Mairead aka "Lola Mae" **

I took an extended break from NB for finals and moving across the country and the first thing (well, ok, third thing) I stumble across when I log back in is this! I realize I am very late to the party, but I can't resist throwing in my two cents:
Wow. So much drama. Roo is lucky to have a mama who puts so much thought into her name!
And Emma, that was absolutely fantastic! Love the "blessings on your scallop shell." You're very talented. (Also, next time I feel indecisive about something I'm going to write a poem about each option.)
Otter, can I just say Aphrodite is gorgeous and seems to be perfect, and when Roo asks you why you chose her name, you are going to have the best story to tell her!
Of your combos, Aphrodite Illyria Wren is the clear winner for me. I love how Wren balances out the melodic sing-songyness of Aphrodite and Illyria.
