What’s in a name? This age old question has presented itself to countless people in every generation. And still we ponder. As our “due date” approaches, Andrew and I have been going back and forth on names. Last night, we resorted to the internet in search of Russian and Kazakh names (we intend for one of their names to be from that area of the world). We selected random girls names and random boys names. There are many, many, many names that should never be used. :)
We came across this name: Diarrea. We both started laughing but I quickly assured Andrew that it must be pronounced Dee-Aria. It is Greek in origin and Andrew’s boss is of Greek descent so he sent an e-mail to Greg asking for the pronunciation etc. Andrew received a response that unfortunately did not confirm my assurances…rather it is pronounced exactly as it looks. Greg advised us not to use this name. We, however, are intrigued…does anyone actually have this name here in the U.S.?
Alas, our search has ended for now. And don’t worry, the name Diarrea hasn’t made our short list. :)
