The New Kid Has a Name!

We brainstormed, and put up sticky notes with name ideas on the wall. Friends came over and contributed their own suggestions. We vetoed them off once a day until we had only 5 blue notes left. We started writing up yellow notes that had full names on them, using one of the 5 favorites, and sometimes pulling in some crossed out names that might pair well with them.

Spoiler Alert: If you don't want to know, don't click any further!

And then there was one. Aeryn Inara Schelly. Aeryn means "Daughter of Ireland," and Inara comes from Arabic origin to mean "Ray of Light." Each also features prominently in two of the greatest sci-fi series of all time, Farscape and Firefly. That's going to make her extra awesome.

Disclaimer: This is a final decision, even though we didn't wait until the last possible moment to tell everyone. Thanks!
