Welcome to our little corner of the world!

Our son arrived on [name_u]June[/name_u] 12 by emergency caesarean after his heart rate repeatedly dropped during labor. Despite a traumatic birth experience, he is healthy and I am recovering. We drove family and friends mad during pregnancy by not “revealing” his name. We didn’t actually decide on it until we saw him. We went to the hospital with a short list of first name options and thankfully his name was clear when we laid eyes on him. (I had vowed to decide before leaving the hospital but secretly worried I would still feel torn.) He is [name_m]Soren[/name_m] [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u]. [name_m]Soren[/name_m] feels both strong and sensitive, has a certain gravitas and flexibility, and goes well with the two surnames he carries. [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] is in honor of my grandfather. [name_f]My[/name_f] mom was moved to tears by this! Soren’s name is received warmly by some, tepidly by others, and to my surprise, with a lot of confusion about pronunciation and spelling. I thought it was pretty straightforward, haha. Anyway, my partner and I think it suits him and people seem to be warming up to the name as it becomes identified with the baby.


Congratulations! I’m also surprised that people have been unsure of pronunciation and spelling! I really love [name_m]Soren[/name_m] [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u], I think it’s so handsome, with a sophisticated warmth :blush:

Wishing you a smooth recovery from the difficult birth, mentally and physically :yellow_heart:
