    Hjörtur's brother has arrived

    This weekend, in the early hours of Saturday, we welcomed our son, Hjörtur's half brother, into our family. He was born at 35 weeks and 2 days, but he's doing good and should be coming home with us on Friday.

    Naming this little miracle was a struggle, but a few weeks ago we finally decided on Barnabas Húni. Barnabas ticks almost all of our boxes: it's biblical, strong with a good meaning (either son of the prophet or son of encouragement), not overused but also not unfamiliar, and it works in most languages (our Barnabas has Scandinavian, Polish, Jewish, German and Assyrian heritage). Húni is an Icelandic name, honoring my heritage. It means bear cub, with ties it to Hjörtur which means deer.
    We haven't decided if we'll be using a nickname yet, we'll see if something sticks.

    Thank you to everyone here at NB who helped us decide!

    Congratulations! It flows so well and goes brilliantly as a sibset. I love the little connection between bear cub and deer as well.
