What's in a name? Part Three (non-fiction, names)

Sometimes life is full of coincidences. Two things will happen together by accident, but it feels like the two things were supposed to happen together.
This morning I wrote a post here about names. This afternoon my family and I went to visit my sister and her husband. We talked about names all afternoon! We did not talk about this blog at all, though.
Can you guess why we talked about names? My sister is having a baby! I was so excited to find out! When people find out about a new baby on the way, one question they ask the parents-to-be is what names they are thinking of.
My sister wants to name the baby Annie if it is a girl. Annie was my grandmother's name. There is a good chance the baby might have curly red hair. If she has curly red hair, her name will not be Annie. Search 'Annie the Musical' online and you will see why not.
I am happy for my sister and her husband, and look forward to meeting our new family member. I'm sure the baby will have a name that is choosen carefully, and that is perfectly right for him or her.
Today was a good day for thinking about names.
