I'm going to be an aunt!

My very clever sister is growing a baby! I'm very excited at the idea of having a niecephew*, and have started suggesting some good Biblical / Saintly names, inspired by the Pope's recent statement.

For a girl:
Frideswide (patron saint of Oxford University)
Jezebel (reclaim it from the misogynists!)
Jael (drove a tent peg into a man's head... nice)

For a boy:
Maher-shalal-hash-baz (Isaiah's second son - endless opportunities for cool nicknames)
Uzzi (ironic?)

I could go on, but they don't seem to inspired by my suggestions. Some people have no imagination!

*That is, either a niece or a nephew
