An early solstice surprise

Our fifth, E.mmanuelle Myrtle, arrived last week with almost no warning, with everything done and dusted in less than 6 hours. We are over the moon. So glad to meet her at last!

We have been far and wide through many name options the last few months! Some of my friends were surprised by Myrtle - I suppose it is a little old-fashioned, but it’s for one of our family’s favourite trees. The first is also on the long side! Any suggested nicknames other than Emmy?



[name_f]Emmanuelle[/name_f] [name_f]Myrtle[/name_f] is powerful and lovely!

For nicknames, I’d consider:

[name_f]Emmanuelle[/name_f] [name_f]Myrtle[/name_f] is so unexpected :rose:

I think [name_f]Elle[/name_f] or even [name_f]Nell[/name_f] could work

Such a lovely, striking choice! I know Emmanuelles nicknamed [name_f]Emma[/name_f] and [name_m]Manu[/name_m], but I love the ideas of [name_f]Mimi[/name_f] or [name_f]Nell[/name_f] as well :heart:
