Baby Names to Bridge Cultures

Baby Names to Bridge Cultures | Name News | Scoop.it
Alice or Frideswide? Joshua or Aethelred? That’s a tough call.
Clare's insight:

I know it's a dilemma, but I love so much about this post. They want to be European. They're seriously considering some seriously Anglo-Saxon names. Dad-to-be likes Hild!

Was it easy to pick your child’s name and why did choose it?

Yolanda Lionheart Letica

This made perfect sense to us. Needless to say, it didn’t meet the grandparents approval.

‘Yolanda’ is spanish, we met in Spain, also where she was conceived (no, we did not make a baby the night we met). It means Violet flower; number 6 on my list of favourite things would be purple hydrangeas.

And Lionheart. it melts me every time i say it. As a newborn it was very fitting, she would make these cute lion cub noises, little squeaky roars when she yawned.

Letica is Carlo’s surname. its Croatian, he’s half dutch half Croatian.
Clare's insight:

Yoli's sister is Francesca.
