About Me

My photo
Last year I turned the big 3.0 and got married - I thought that was my milestone year. As it turns out, 2009 quickly overshadowed 2008 when my husband and I found out we were pregnant. I'm going to be experiencing everything for the first time as a woman and an expectant mother which is why I'm calling this my year of firsts. I'm senior editor for Marie Claire South Africa.

Baby girls

Now that we know we're having a girl, I can focus properly on girls' names and guess who doesn't like any of my choices. Yes, including Amalia. Do you know what Hein suggested as a name? Daisy! Daisy I ask you with tears in my eyes! Daisy is a cow and not a little girl! No offence to any mums or grannies who have such a name but really, we might as well name her Beauty, or Precious or Congratulations! Once again, no offence. The power struggle begins... we both have naming veto but surely I should have more power?

So last night I was trawling the Internet for names and I came across these new ones. Our little one is definitely going to have two names - I still really love the Swahili ones. And I'd like her to have an African name. Ironic since I've always been proud that my parents never gave us so-called 'Christian' names

Kenzi - Irish
Rae - lamb
Lea - delicate (Hebrew)
Tate - cheerful
Sia - bringer of joy
Mila - friendly, soft, pleasant (Greek)
Noelle - Xmas (I know, meaningless really)
Olivia - symbol of peace
Ulani - heavenly rain

Any thoughts?
