I know – not so long since the last one and I’m delighted too. I don’t know if summer people just have more daylight hours, so the updates come in sooner – no judgment, but we love getting them! Here’s the update for A Four-Letter Word... Full Article

Hi Hayley, I just recently moved to Vermont - land of hills, mountains and great hiking everywhere. I've been looking forward to getting more in shape, but without fail, every hike starts okay - usually with an incline with varying degrees of steepness and then 5-8 minutes in, I'm wheezing, can't breathe, and normally need to stop soon after to catch my breath. Full Article

This is a heinous outfit. And, my God, these are heinous pants. The all-over blush is a problem. But it’s the blush satin pants that are so objectionable to me I’m actually angry. There is no excuse for this unless you are Mariah Carey and about to get in a bathtub and ruin the outfit. Full Article

Hi Duana, We are in desperate need of name help. We are (unexpectedly) expecting our third child this winter and are completely stumped on a name. We don't know the gender and have two sons already named Kadence (the K...I know, I know but I was young and it was 2006) and Cash. Both had family names as middle names, and our last name is hyphenated with 3 syllables total and ending in the "eee" sound. Full Article

Hi Duana! I LOVE your column and your name nerd advice (and your name, to be honest). I also loved your book – how we feel about our names is such a study in human hope and behaviour, I can hardly believe that we went this long without the name nerd column in our lives. I have a name that has a completely wacky spelling so I totally live by my Starbucks name on paper – thank you for not making me feel badly about this. Full Article

The beauty of explosive training is that you don’t need a gym to do it and I feel like most training scenes from boxing movies usually take place outside, in the cold. Am I right? All you need to do is find a park that has some stairs you can run up and down, a bench you can step and jump onto and a field where you can run sprints. Full Article

Duana Names: I Like It, But Don’t Love It

Duana Posted by Duana at October 5, 2016 19:28:45 October 5, 2016 19:28:45

Hi Duana, I am due in December with my first, a girl. We were pretty set with boys names, our father's names in the middle, with Remi as the first name. (I am French Canadian, so I favour French names. Hubby is Polish Canadian and has no real preferences towards names.) Now that we know it's a girl, hubby won't really budge on my favourite name, which is Louise (Loulou as a nickname). Full Article
