Our muse is here!

[name_f]My[/name_f] wife and I had our little rainbow baby after 5 rounds of IVF. Sex was a surprise—I thought not knowing would motivate me in labor, but I was in so much pain I would have been happy to give birth to flying purple people eater by the end. We are thrilled to have welcomed a tiny and mighty baby girl (just under 6lbs). Her name is [name_f]Clio[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]. We chose [name_f]Clio[/name_f] because we wanted something short and lively, not overly feminine, and with a little historical gravitas. [name_f]My[/name_f] wife and I were drawn to names from the Greek pantheon as we met due to our mutual love of [name_f]Xena[/name_f]: [name_m]Warrior[/name_m] [name_f]Princess[/name_f]. I also have a PhD in [name_m]History[/name_m], so [name_f]Clio[/name_f], the [name_f]Muse[/name_f] of [name_m]History[/name_m] and heroic poetry, seemed to be on brand. [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] is the name of my wife beloved late Grandmother. We used my egg, so it was important to us that her middle name links her to that side of the family.


Congratulations! Her name is so gorgeous! Best wishes to all of you🙂!
