Mcinkat Fourth and Final Has Arrived

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] everyone!

Sorry for the long absence, but our fourth and final baby arrived earlier this month and is named…

R0samund Ur$a!

She joins big siblings H3rmione 3lowen, 3vander Hawth0rn, and P3regrine Ala$dair :slight_smile:

About her name…

[name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] is a [name_m]German[/name_m] name meaning “horse protection” that has picked up the folkloric meaning “rose of the world” because of its visual similarity to the Latin phrase rosa mundi. [name_f]Ursa[/name_f] is a Latin name meaning “little bear.”

In thinking about these diverse meanings, I explored several stories. I thought of the sister I lost, whose birthday was our daughter’s due date, and the fact that their birth month’s flower is the rose. I thought about the Virgin [name_f]Mary[/name_f], who is associated with roses as an icon of someone blooming among thorns. I thought of the constellations [name_f]Ursa[/name_f] [name_m]Major[/name_m] and [name_f]Ursa[/name_f] [name_m]Minor[/name_m], the mother and son bears who chase each other across the sky. I thought of untethered horses and a martyred saint, the ways we ought to be free and the people and causes worth tying ourselves to.

I hope, through her name, that our daughter is reminded of the unending, unconditional love of her earthly and heavenly parents–even when either or both are hard to believe. I hope that her name is a reminder to protect that which is wonderfully wild within nature and within herself. And I hope it is a reminder of unbridled curiosity and steadfast resilience in the face of sorrow and adversity.
