Hey Duana! We are expecting late spring this year, and don’t know what gender the baby will be.   The longer I sit on names, the less they seem to appeal to me... we do want names that would be easily said in English or French. Ages ago, we came across the name Adara for a daughter. Full Article

Dear Duana, A very good friend of mine is due to give birth to baby #3 next week. She massively struggles with names (this is the text she sent me earlier today: "Why is naming a human soooo difficult???"), but she and her partner did an exceptional job coming up with Lachlan and Magnus for their first two: marvellous strong names for two silly, sweet boys. Full Article

Hi Duana! I had written to you months ago about baby #3 due in May (not knowing what the baby’s gender would be) and stressing about what to name the babe if it was a boy. We loved the name Isaiah but it is way to similar to our daughter’s name Eliza, which is why I reached out to you!  Well. Full Article
