After months of kicking ideas around, I've finally decided on a middle name for our girl. These things are important, and they can take time.
Her official, full name is now Wylla Francis Stout.
I've always loved the name Francis - it's the middle name of both my grandfathers. I had been saving it for a special kitten, and well, a kitten doesn't get more special than this one. : )
I'm a fan of Saint Francis too, patron saint of animals. And she also reminds me of Frances from THIS book, Bread and Jam for Frances.
I know that traditionally, it's the male spelling of "Francis". It was a deliberate decision to choose that version over "Frances". I wanted to stay true to my grandfathers.
So, there you have it.
Wylla Francis Stout.
