Her name

We’ve decided: her name is Laurel Frances Carraway. Catherine was our other top choice for a girl’s name; if she emerged a boy he would have most likely been named Kieran/Kirin or Robin.

We wanted to avoid anything too popular or common, but also wanted something she wouldn’t have to spell every time she introduced herself to someone (not that I know anything about what that’s like). We still have to spell “Carraway” for people but it’s still much easier than trying to spell “Winegarner.”
