I love it! Were you in on the Bright Street baby name discussion recently? C-dub brought up Agnes, and I had just the day before developed a crush on that name, as pronounced by the French, after having watched a foreign film from the library. Since then, I've been coming to realize that I even adore it with a bland American accent. It's funny how tastes can change. The same thing happened with the name Henry a couple years ago—I went from dislike to luv in nothing flat. It's like when I was a kid and I changed practically overnight from gagging over avocados and mushrooms to being unable to live without them.
What this is all leading up to is just a teeny-einy link to hopefully brighten your day, as it did mine. A nice person named Phoebe just came out of lurk mode to leave me a thoughtful comment. I went to visit her blog, and lo and behold, there was a baby Agnes! Not only an Agnes, but an Agnes Mae! Mae is one of my adored names of choice, a family name, always on The List. Don't know if I'll ever get to use it, but I love it.
Anyway. If you haven't met Phoebe or Agnes Mae, you oughta go and do. I've got a fresh crush on a girl with a strawberry on her swaddled bum.
