Clare's insight:

Should parents avoid Lana because of what it spells backwards (which children will probably discover at some point)? There are workarounds, like Alana or Milana, or spelling it Lanah or Larna, but is it an issue?

Leon Noel Leon

Liebe werdende Jungseltern, was haben wir gelacht, als der erste Junge Leon Noel genannt wurde, was für ein tolles Palindrom! Von vorn oder von hinten
Clare's insight:

Sincerely,

Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells"
