dear husband-to-be,

i think i want to name our first child phinneus. (given it's a boy, of course).

i re-read a separate peace last spring and now the notion is not to be dislodged.

think of it: we'll call him finny when he's little, finn as he grows older and self-conscious of youth.

and the name'll serve as a compass of sorts. a benchmark, a weight tying him to fealty and courage and the pursuit of joy.

i don't know why it's been on my mind as of late. but now it's written down so i can stop worrying about trying to remember or the encroaching curtain of forgetfulness.

take this for what you will.


love, love,

yours. ever yours.

my best name ideas always come from reading a good book or watching a sappy movie. *sigh*

That's one of my all-time favorite books. All of my children will be named after book characters. Good choice.

I've not read A Separate Peace, but now I'm curious.
And Finn...I knew a boy from Norway named Finn. He moved away when I was eight. I've never forgotten, and always loved, that name...that wonderful name.
