[name]Hi[/name]. I have been looking over some posts and a name popped up two or maybe three times, [name]Aveline[/name] (at least that I noticed since the weekend). So this got me thinking about Mr. [name]Rogers[/name]’ Neighborhood and one of his neighbors, [name]Betty[/name] Aberlin (her stage name was retained for her portrayal of said neighbor), who also played a character in the [name]Land[/name] of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin. Upon all research, I can find this isn’t her real name, but nothing that says where she got this name, Aberlin.
Anyway, I always liked this character. She might have made some impression on me as I was young, and she was young, and she was pretty and nice, so even if you never watched Mr. [name]Rogers[/name], you can understand a smart pretty woman on tv, but I think in the US, most of us who are old enough to post on the internet have been exposed to it. (Part of my enduring love for the name [name]Daniel[/name] is from the tiger puppet who lived in the clock, and one of my early naming obsessions for multi-syllabic feminized names part from examples like [name]Henrietta[/name] Pussycat, who lived in the tree).
So anyway, this made me think - is Aberlin a name? I have only the idea that I might put it in the middle for a daughter someday, not a first name. For me, that’s still maybe too weird. She, the imaginary future daughter, may never experience this show the same way I did, or at all. Is this too obscure or ugly or demented to pick this? She wasn’t really a princess, but I could say pre-Disney dvd era, she was my closest ideal to a princess in my daily life, who was awfully kind and thoughtful.
[name]How[/name] does this come off to you?
