@cyoung: [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] and [name_m]David[/name_m] are lovely names. I find it very difficult to name this baby because he or she will be such a mixture of heritages. Hjörtur is too, but with him my ex-husband and I decided on giving him an Iceland name pretty early on. With this baby SO and I are looking for a more “international” name, while still honoring as many of both our heritage as possible.
@bluedanube: I adore [name_m]Ulysses[/name_m], but I don’t have the guts to use it as a first name. [name_m]Vincent[/name_m] [name_m]Ulysses[/name_m] is on our list though. The name [name_m]Ulysses[/name_m] also has a special meaning for SO and me because years ago we met in a book shop where he worked, and we started talking to each other because I bought [name_m]Ulysses[/name_m] by [name_u]James[/name_u] [name_u]Joyce[/name_u] and he told me he loved it so much.
