Azula Rosemary. We wanted something strong and feminine without being too common or overly frilly.
Before we were married DH Corey got me to watch a TC series called "Avatar: The Last Airbender". As far as I understand all the names in the show were made up by the writers - Azula was one of the names they used, and as soon as we heard it we both loved it and decided on the spot if we had a daughter her name would be Azula. Years later we still loved it, it was far and away the steady top of our list of options, so we went for it. I guess it's kind of nerdy to name your child after a cartoon character, but we thought it might be an obscure enough show that most people wouldn't make the connection. My daughter has beautiful blue eyes so sometimes if I don't want to tell people about how we found the name I just say it's from Azul, the Spanish word for blue.
Aside from meeting my desire for a nature name, Rosemary honors a few family members - my mother comes from a Catholic family where most of the girls have some variant of Rose or Mary in their names. We considered using Azula Jasmine, which were some of the flowers we had at our wedding ceremony, but decided Rosemary was better for us because of the family connection.
Pregnant again and still sort of debating what the name (or names, if its TWINS - we will find out next Wednesday) will be. Its important to me that the names can be spelled phonetically and that they are special.Azula Rosemary
