As I told Edith at the time, I think Holly is a great name.

Thank you ❀️

I now feel bad in retrospect that I ever questioned it! But I guess that’s just how it works.

I have two criteria for kids’ names:

1. Is it suitable for both a little kid and a grown adult

2. Does it feel comfortable when both whispered and yelled

Holly is the perfect name! Did you use one of the other choices as a middle name?

Edith ZimmermanMOD

Thank you! And she has a family name for her middle name (Fox!)…
