    Orin Murphy - Brother for Ender and Lyra

    After a very rough pregnancy, baby Orin Murphy arrived a month early, on August 14th!

    His big brother, Ender Grey (3yo), and big sister, Lyra Yvaine (1.5yo), are thrilled and totally smitten with their new baby brother.

    Like his siblings, both of Orin's names came from literature. After using our favorite books for the first two kids, we struggled with baby #3. We fell in love with the name Orin (and Sorin, Torin, Thorin, etc.), so when we realized it is Arthur Curry/Aquaman's birth name, it felt perfect. (I was always more of an x-man fan, but it still felt right.)

    Murphy is after my husband's favorite character, Grey Murphy, from the series Xanthe. It also means "sea warrior" which gives both of his names a sweet ocean theme.

    Thank you so much to the Name Sage and all the Berries who helped us brainstorm and narrow down our names.

    P.s. if he was a girl, we had settled on the name Ione Valette. Of the two, I definitely prefer Orin Murphy, as Ione never quite felt like it was the right fit for us.

    You tried posting two times yesterday and both attempts got flagged by the spam filter (and since there weren't any other new posts on this board when I would've seen the flagged post I didn't look until someone else did post). I approved this (the first) one and deleted the second one (they both look the same, but if I got it wrong let me know and I can undo the deletion).

    Thank you! We struggled with picking his name for a long time. Didn't settle on it until a few days before he was born.
