Name a Baby Sweepstakes

In Good News:

I'm now accepting submissions for baby names. I tend to like names of physical/natural things used as personal names, and names that are off the currently-trendy list. Girl names. Honestly, submit a winner. We don't have a name yet. I've been calling her Fayaway, after Melville's beautiful topless island-babe in Typee. That's not going to win, I'm afraid.

I've always liked names like Olivia, Viola, Violet. V names.

Olivia Pratt. Game over.

Oh, and Evelyn (or Evelin).

Evelyn Steele Pratt. First woman president. Bam.

Ed said...

Willow, Olive, Forsythe, Sage, or from the non-nature camp, Josephine could be a pretty name. Or you could name her Edna, Edith, or Edwina. I like 'Ed' names.

Viola... Evelyn... I can work with that stuff. I like Sage, but I don't think Gretchen does for some reason. Good calls so far.

Note: middle name has to be Brennan. Worth considering for rhythm's sake.

Casey, I would have thought you'd have already planted your flag on Phillis.
