AV: The Immaculate Grandmother

Silas Parker Doyle

The "Silas" and the "Parker" are good jazz musician names. The "Doyle" part is Eamonn's surname (from Aida's first marriage).

Turns out, after a brief Google, that the names are more apt than anyone knew:

Silas: "Man of the forest"
Parker: "Park Keeper" or "Gamekeeper of the park"

This is the child Aida has been calling "Little Acorn" since its conception.

BTW, the title of this post? That would be me, having come to this enviable place without giving birth myself. Cool how that works, huh? I'm thrilled.

Welcome baby Silas, I have a family member called Silas, he is one now and we were very surprised by the unusual name and his dad is a man who works in wood, so the name fits beautifully. Enjoy being grandma.
All the best for the future.

A beautiful beautiful baby!!! Thanks for posting the pictures. A great name, too. He pretty much has to be a cool kid with a name like that.

RS: Congratulations. You must be thrilled. I am not one of those people who thinks that all babies are pretty, but you have a good looking young man there.
