Help my wife name her new bird
It's a carved wooden Heron with an attitude. She got it at the huge craft market in Ocho Rios, across from Soniís Plaza two weeks ago. The carver, Derrik Linton is pictured on the left. It will live in our Caribbean upstairs stairway hallway, decorated with souvenirs from our many trips to Jamaica (all at Couples of course). Now, it needs a name.
The naming of things Jamaican
Just a cute "naming" story before my Heron suggestion. On our first trip (of many) to Jamaica, we brought home a 4- foot giraffe. I named her "Jamaica". When our 2-year-old granddaughter first saw her, she asked her name. "Jamaica", I replied. With wide eyes, Katie said, "Oh, Amaica. Pretty"!
Thus..the perfect name!
If you're gender specific about this very nice Heron, I vote for Dr. Linton or Ms. Linton. Whatever you choose, this topic sure has engaged many people because it's just plain fun!
