An Omen - a good one...

I was just sitting here playing around with girl names - for the little girl everyone is so convinced I'm going to have, hahaha...

I had come up with some names that I'd bandied about, but just recently I was thinking that perhaps next time I would go with the Icelandic tradition of not naming the baby until the Christening (in our case it would be a naming ceremony)...

I would then want the name to be something I hadn't mentioned to people before, so any names you may have heard me mention are thusly sticken off the list... Sorry Amanda, no Disa...

Anyway, so I was laying there feeding Bryn this afternoon when this name came to me. I had seen it on an Icelandic site for kids names that I FINALLY found the other day - it was actually the register of acceptible Icelandic names (in Iceland they're very protective of their language, culture, and therefore their names as well)...

So anyway, this name came to me, and then a middle name... So, of course, I hopped on the net to see if anyone had used this combo before, I looked at images, and came across a picture of a young woman called Brynja holding a baby with the same first name I'd chosen, how strange! (considering Bryn's name is the masculine form of Brynja - ie. Brynjar)...

Then I see this other set of images under a name that is my chosen name just transposed (so middle name first, and first name second)... Of course, she was Icelandic. But here are the "omen" bits... She had a page on Elfwood, which is an artist site I know well because my brother has a page there. Secondly, she apparently lives in Norway - so an Icelander living in Norway doing art for this site, so much like my brother and myself!

So, I think this future baby of mine has spoken and this will be her name if she is a she!

Aw bummer! I liked Disa!

Ah well, now you know you've GOT to have her though, so you can hurry and having the naming ceremony, because otherwise I'll die of suspense and you'd feel really, really guilty right??? ;-p

I was wondering can you have a naming ceremony now and then she can be born into it? That way my suspense can be relieved. ;o)
