in reply to What Perlish name to assign to my baby girl?

A few ideas spring to mind:

  • Quine - similar to Quinn and would foreshadow a career in genome mapping
  • Perl - I had a friend named Pearl long ago, and it's just a minor spelling variation (ah, just went back to the CB and found kudra suggesting this)
  • DATA - if you're a Trek fan and don't mind the gender flip

Other related ideas:
  • you will soon be a pop!
  • you will have to chop up food before the little one can chomp it
  • some will say you've been blessed
  • your announcements could say you've received a __PACKAGE__
  • if your relatives are like mine, after 6 months they'll be asking you when you'll have the next
  • later you'll have to deal with how strict to be with your daughter
  • do tell the new one not to be obsessed with abs or any other body part (or numeric function)
  • you'll definitely use warnings; but you'll doubtless find them ineffective

I have a feeling I'll be updating this later on ;-)
