Kailey's names

What is in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet. - William Shakespeare

Kailey lately (the last couple of months), tells me everyday a new name by which she should be called. Most days, it changes a few time throughout the day. Tonight she was to be called Rony (pronounced like Tony). They are always completely made up. Some of the most common repeat ones are Loana (loan with uh at the end, I'm not even going to try to do proper pronunciations, it would take me hours with the character key to find the right characters and symbols), Shanta, and Amalise. These are the only ones that resemble normal names so I can remember them; the others are so abstract that they don't stick in my brain. I'm kind of sad about that because some that I've forgotten were real doozies. I guess I should start writing them down.

The way that it usually goes is:

K: Mom, I'm Rony.
H: Ok
A little later...
H: Kailey get off of the coffee table.
H: Oh, I'm sorry, Rony, get off of the table please.

Sometimes I get a name too. Sometimes it is assigned by Kailey and sometimes, if I'm lucky I get to choose :) I usually choose Loana or Shanta, I remember those easiest.


  1. Kailey is so cute! I love the names, very creative.

  2. That's great! You need to make yourself write these down next time she comes up with a doozie!

  3. That is hilarious. What an imagination she has. hehe
