Kveller Helps Name a Baby!


Kveller readers may remember the contest we had back in February to help name my friend’s baby. She wanted to honor her grandmother, Goldie, who recently passed away. The winning name was Orli, and I am so pleased to let you all know that my friend decided to use it.

Orli Rose was born on June 11. She showed up about 5 weeks early, so she’s still in the NICU, but doing well. Thanks to everyone who participated in our contest, and especially to MusicJulia for her wonderful suggestion!
