    At a swim meet, a group of kids around my age from another team (who I didn't know) were talking about how their friend Finn hated swimming, and it was ironic because of his name. Without hesitation, I jumped in and said, "Actually, Finn is short for an Irish surname that means 'white shoulder'. It has nothing to with the English word 'fin'."
    They stared at me like I had two heads, and I hastily told a white lie and said my newborn cousin's name was Finn.

    My sisters both want to name a son William (one loves the nn Will, the other prefers Liam. Both wrinkled their noses at my suggestion of Wim)...neither of them believe me that William is in the top ten, or that the nicknames are very common as well.

    One sister suggested Scarlett for a future daughter and i squealed over how they'd all have a color name, and then had to admit that, yes, i look up the meanings of names in my spare time.
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.
