    our baby has arrived, and our top picks don't suit her

    What would you name her? She looks round faced and friendly, quiet and strong.

    Ombeline was my wildcard name, it's the most fitting. Adelaide, Brunhilda - cool but a bit macho paired with last name Scholze.

    She has such a round wide face, like a waldorf doll or an Elsa Beskow or Sibylle von Olfers illustration. Light brown or dark blonde hair, eyebrows so blonde you can't see them. Blue eyes like her dad, may well keep them. She's got long feet so she'll be tall and lithe like her dad, pretty rosebud lips like a doll. Tranquil energy, very easy to please.

    ps. Having a baby is AWESOME isn't? She smells so good too. Our first baby arrived yesterday morning in a birthing pool at home. I feel like a warrior for having managed a natural birth. How do you name your babies? I look at her and think that she defies labels, and names. it would be so futile to use human sounds to describe her. There is no perfect name, if there was it would be a song. But we can't refer to her as the baby for lover then a month, birth certificates and such….
    Mother to Ombeline Althea Aurelia Tindra Lucero Scholze
    Born in February.

    What about the names in your signature, are they options? Because, if they are, they are both beautiful.

    What about: Matilda (Or just Tilda), Genevieve, Wallis, Clemence, Violet, Avis?

    Hope you find something soon, and congratulations on her safe arrival!
    Not expecting, just a girl with an interest in etymology.
