Baby Girl Has a Name!

My cousin has named her newborn daughter for the birds that always rode on Odin's shoulder....

With a nod to the Norse Gods and the legend of their representation of thought and memory... and their ties to the present and past.

And her middle name is the feminine version of our late Grandfather's Icelandic name.

It's perfect.... It was a beautiful surprise (neither of two names we thought she was considering!)

Welcome to the family Baby R.

Beautiful! I had to look it up to find out, but so very nice!

Ya - I figured anyone motivated enough would, lol...

I'm told it suits her too - she's such a dark little bird :)
