A Minor Miracle: Names Discussed for Ant-two, the bladette
Perhaps he was feeling especially maudlin/festive due to the holiday, but my husband actually spontaneously had an adult conversation with me about names for our impending bladette. We didn't make it all the way through the list of 20 or so names-- I can only ask so much-- but here are the ones that meet with mutual agreement, many of which were his actual suggestions:
The ones he strongly vetoed, with reasoning if there was any:
Helene ("sounds old and white." When pointed out that this is the quintessential Greek name, he did not relent)
Eanswythe (death stare)

Myriam ("the Y is just weird, and Miriam isn't Christian enough")
Nerissa ("I'm pretty sure this isn't really a name")
Sylvia (we have a friend by the name, he thinks it would appear in honor of her)
Rosamond ("Mound! You would put MOUND in your daughter's name?!"
The ones I really like but we didn't make it to:
