I was named for my Grand-mothers and have carried their names proudly over the last 34 years. We named our daughter after two of her amazing Great-Grand-mothers. Now, we have to come up with two new names for our second daughter.
I was very, very confident that I was pregnant with another girl. So confident that I entered into a little wager with my husband. (If you don't know him, he comes from a family who loves to bet). If the baby turned out to be a girl, I would name her. If it turned out to be a boy, he would name him. We shook on it. And, according to our 20 week Ultra-Sound, I won.
I want to wait to see our little girl before deciding on a name. But, I've been collecting several ideas. Right now, I am on the look out for an Indian middle name.
My requirements are...
1. Easy for non-Indians to read and pronounce properly.
3. A beautiful or at least non-offensive meaning.
I asked Papa Bear to start complying some Indian names he liked and fit my requirements. He came up with this beginning list.
Riya- Graceful or Singer
Mena- Wife of the Himalayas
I think we have a good start. Please add any more suggestions, if you have any!
