Fell's New Addition
« on: September 08, 2006, 01:56:11 PM »
Yes, this doesn't belong in Site News, but it's in regards to Fell, so I don't care.

Fell's third offspring offsprung this morning, at about 10:30am.  It's a girl, and I don't know the height or weight.  There's also a bit of a naming controversy, which has been going on for several years now, so the child is nameless.  

(Dawn, being from Hickville, WY, thinks that Kendra is a great name.  Dan, being stupid, believes that Morgan is (1) a girl's name, and (2) a first name).  I think they're both wrong.  The baby should be named Audrey 2.

Poor nameless little girl! Call her Heather.  ;)

Congratulations to Fell and Mrs. Fell! Yay for babies. Your baby and Kije's baby should hang out.

I say they name her Morgendra of Orem.

I think you should hang onto that name 42. But the last I heard, you are very distantly removed from being able to name a child.

Congratulations Dan and Dawn.

Mommy and baby are doing fine, despite being tangentially related to Mustard.

The current frontrunners for names are Morgan, Kendra, and Maya (or Maija, which would be my preferred spelling). I'm very tempted to make it a poll and let the readers decide. I've been pulling for Morgan for a while, and as of yesterday Dawn started coming around to it as well.

Congratulations.

I vote for Maya. Or Maija. Whichever.

Many congratulations.  I like Maija best.

Well, if you're not going to do Heather  ;), I like Maija.

Thank you all for voting for Maija. We went with Morgan--but did we do it specifically to bug you? The world may never know.

I'm pleased with Morgan. The next generation model #2 of the Ehlers prototype is Sarah Morgan.

Morgan *is* a girl's name. and has for some 1500 years or more. King Arthurs sister is named Morgan.

Or Morgaine or Morgawse or whatever.

I don't like Morgan. Kendra is a much better name. Maija is right out.

I vote for a name that won't curse her to a lifetime of people NEVER knowing how to spell it correctly.  Morgan is a perfectly fine name, as I had a book as a little girl about Morgan and her pet unicorn.
