Birth announcement: Edith Therese!

Can a day get much better for name lovers than TWO birth announcements?? Today’s a happy day!! A mama I did a semi-private consultation for (semi-private because I did post one of her questions here to get your feedback) emailed me to let me know her baby has arrived — a girl! And she has been given the amazingly beautiful name of … Edith Therese!!

Mom writes:

Pleased to announce that Edith Therese was born on 8/19 at 6 lb 11 oz and 21 in long. Had she been a boy we would have gone with Robert Boethius (nn Bo). We are so in love!!”

Ahhh I’m just dying over her name!! It’s so sweet!! And even though this birth announcement is all about Edith, I can’t help but swooning over their chosen boy name too. This Mama and Papa know how to NAME!! Congratulations to them both and happy birthday Baby Edith!!

And Edith’s coming back! I know a bunch of families who have considered it, and at least two who have named their babies Edith (here and here). […]


  3. […] One of the things I was also surprised by with Daniel’s list is how not-Catholic the names are (besides the biblical Abel). Which is totally fine! But I did try to think of names with maybe a similar feel that had a faithy connection, and the only one I really came up with as sort of similar (in spelling anyway) to Beowulf is Boethius, aka St. Severinus Boethius — he was a philosopher some of my readers have mentioned from time to time, which prompted me to do this post. One of those readers had actually decided on Robert Boethius for her son, but she ended up having a girl (whose got an equally amazing name). […]
