So far none of the names on our short list have really stood out as totally “right” and we are definitely starting to feel the clock ticking! I jokingly told my husband about writing in to your name column, and he encouraged me, in all seriousness, to send you an email. Full Article

I was at a party a few weeks ago and the host of the party was serving her mother’s world famous samosas.  Now having heard about these deep fried pieces of heaven for years, combined with the fact that I arrived to the party starving after a two hour mountain bike ride, I put four onto my plate and then walked towards the kitchen full of excitement. Full Article

I am getting (VERY) close to my due date and am having my third girl. I have a boy name I LOVE, Hugh, but we obviously will not be using that.  The middle name will be Sullivan (another family name) and our last name is a direction (think Kim K’s kids). Do you have a recommendation for a girl name that embodies all of the elements of Hugh? My two older girls are Bridget Louise and Reynolds Clare (we primarily call her Renny). Full Article

Hi Hayley, I have a question for you about neck and spine tension. I have an overactive trapezius and my neck regularly gets stiff and full of knots after a day of desk work.

Dear Duana, I'm due in the last week of August with my first, and I'm not quite sure what to do about girl names! The baby's last name will be double-barrelled. We have one name for a boy - Daniel, after my grandfather. All systems are a go on that one -  we both love it, it works with the prospective surname and all sides of our respective families (mixed heritage here, mostly Indian) can pronounce it without trouble. Full Article
