The song of spring is here, heralding Mother Nature's sweet soprano as it soars in splashing color, spraying its new palette around us. Dozens of shades of green emerge, new veggies and fruit tantalize our taste buds, ants and bees go to work while the hummingbirds tease the nectar of fragrant new blossoms. Delicate wings of butterflies complete their marvelous metamorphosis into heavenly creatures, delighting us as they flit playfully here, there, from one new discovery to another.
The magical season of renewal has arrived!
If, for you, the change around you also heralds the metamorphosis of your body as it prepares for a new arrival, then this season is made even more special by the spring child your body is growing. Perhaps your "nesting instinct" is knocking, sending you bustling about your home while your thoughts turn inwards, wanting just the right name for this tiny being, soon to fill your arms and life.
Have you ever wondered where names stem from? What's in a name? How much of it becomes emblazoned into a person's personality, treasured, becoming an inner image portrayed to others? Ever thought of your soon-to-be-born baby as the Keeper of the name you and your spouse assign?
Have you considered that to your child, the name that you now assign will be the one word, with the infinite power to rouse her from the deepest slumber, reaching into the inner recesses of her subconscious? That this will hold true no matter how many thousands of words your child learns, or how many languages she assimilates?
Perhaps your very first gift to your child can be one that will help capture the melodies of spring, and bring sunshine throughout her life. Here's a list to help inspire you, where f. stands for female, m. for male, and meanings are explained between brackets.
