We have a little....

baby boy!
I’m posting very early- he only arrived on the 6th [name]September[/name]- but I wanted to announce the name on here.
My labour coincided with the death of a friend, so we’re waiting to release the whole name until after the funeral as we’re honouring him in the middle spot.
So anyway I am very emotional to announce- [name]Valo[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] has been born and duly named.
We originally planned to go with [name]Valo[/name] [name]Patrick[/name] [name]George[/name], but [name]Valo[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] is the right name in the end.
Of course we both adore him, and I feel totally overwhelmed by love as I did with the girls. I worried with both my second and third pregnancies that it just wouldn’t be possible to love another baby as much as I did my first/first and second, but of course along he has come and swept me away.

Thanks from me + my partner to everyone who gave such colourful advice,

Hello nameberry friend, I was so excited when I saw your birth notice we loved being part of the decision making process.

I just love his name! [name]Valo[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] is a gorgeous name, so very handsome, a lucky little guy to be named so well. I don’t think you could have chosen a better combo.

[name]Valo[/name] is such a cool name and I love it with [name]Sebastian[/name]! Congrats!

Wow, what a great name, and a lucky little boy to honor someone so special! I have to ask, how exactly is [name]Valo[/name] pronounced? I’ve just been in Madagascar for 4 months where it’s pronounced VAH-loo, meaning eight. I’m guessing the Finnish variation is VAY-loh?
