And the family grows

My brother and sister-in-law welcomed their second child last night (August 5th) just after 9:00 pm local time in Copenhagen, Denmark.

All throughout my sister-in-law’s second pregnancy my brother has told me that they have a name, but that they were not telling anyone until after their child was born. The whole family has been awaiting the news. We knew it was going to be a girl, we just wanted to know her name!

This morning (morning for me, afternoon in Denmark), my brother called to tell me that they’ve given her my name.

How cool is that? With all of the names there are in this world, I’m taking this as a compliment. You have to be able to leave some sort of an impression if someone is willing to name their child after you.

  1. Thatโ€™s exciting! Congrats on the family addition ๐Ÿฅณ What a great time to have a birthday! August is a great month ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป

    Does this mean that you have 2 nieces named after you? I remember you telling me a while ago that you have a niece named after you ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes. I have a niece who’s 8 who has my nickname as her full name. Like you know what my full name is and how there can be several nicknames for it. My 8 year old niece has one of those nicknames as her legal name. This niece has another of those nicknames has her legal name. Does that make sense? I feel like this is confusing lol

  2. Congratulations to you and your family.

    A new baby in the family is always something to celebrate big time. A name is the most personal thing to give to a brand new human being and a beautiful way of saying welcome to this world.

    You do leave a strong impression; I enjoy reading you.

    Should your path take you to my country, Denmark, well, know that you are more than welcome to come by for a good conversation, some Danish โ€œhyggeโ€ (feeling good time), and friendship across oceans.

    Many regards

    1. Thank you so much for this note, and for the welcome invitation! Prior to COVID I used to go visit my brother every second Christmas. Hopefully, when I feel it’s safe for me to do so, I can continue trips to Denmark. It really is a special place, and I miss it dearly.
