Welcome, Pippa!

[name_f]Philippa[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_u]Marie[/name_u] (called Pippa) joins siblings [name_f]Cecily[/name_f] [name_f]Frances[/name_f] [name_u]March[/name_u] and [name_u]Jasper[/name_u] [name_u]John[/name_u] [name_u]Elliot[/name_u].

Big thank you as always to all the berries who weighed in with advice! Naming my third was more challenging than naming the first two so it was extra appreciated :slight_smile:

Runner up name was [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] but she absolutely has [name_f]Pippa[/name_f] energy and I’m glad we went with it. [name_f]Philippa[/name_f] was my husband’s idea :slight_smile: [name_f]Violet[/name_f] is a roundabout way of honoring my father who passed away two years ago. Violets were funeral flowers in Ancient Greece and [name_u]Rome[/name_u] and I was also inspired by a quote from [name_m]Hamlet[/name_m] (my dad loved Shakespeare) where [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] says: “I would give you violets but they withered all when my father died. They say he made a good end.” Also, she was conceived on [name_f]Easter[/name_f] [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] so I grooved to the purple connection, too. [name_u]Marie[/name_u] is my mother’s middle name. :purple_heart:
